I've read varying reports on how strong the remote control signal is. Some say great, some say useless. I need to be 120' away, and around the corner from the garage. Comments?
Asked by: Boris
You should not have any problem. I have several of them installed and they have good reception. Even going completely through a house.

Yes you can. I did. my system failed to install correctly. The remote would not make the stations work. We tried a new remote without success. I received an entire new unit. So definitely Yes you can

The timer gets synced to the unit. I have multiple units, I use 1 remote per unit.

Well worth the extra price to have remote capability ... very handy when adjusting and repairing sprinklers ... once having it - cannot go back without a remote in the future. The product is made well ... quality components, self-explanatory ... replaced an OLD rainbird electr-mechanical unit ... no problemo. Battery life on remote is excellent ... range - 1/3-acre lot (unit in garage) never a problem. Fantastic engineering.

Altho this was a 24VAC replacement of an OLDER Orbit control unit, the 0.6 AMPS was not enuff to trigger my non-Orbit control valves and I had to also replace them all. INTENTIONAL INCOMPATIBILITY ???

The remote allows you to turn on the water to a zone for 2, 10 or 30 minutes at a time. HOWEVER, I recently discovered that if your timer box is set to OFF, you can still turn on a zone with the remote. BUT because the timer box is set to OFF, apparently the zone will not shut off until you turn the time box back to AUTO. Today, I ran a zone for 10 minutes with the remote and ended up running the water for half the day (because I had set the box to OFF a couple weeks ago due to so much rain). Wish I could send the flood (and the water bill) to Orbit.

DOA (Dead on Arrival) unpackaged the unit, the center panel was not seated in its hinge, upon investigation I noticed that the power source cover was not installed correctly which bind the panel causing it to pop-out of its hinges. I removed the one screw that held the cover down so I could reseat the cover properly and noticed the transformer was not secured, both mounting pedestal were broke. Note in box specifically stated not to return but to contact ORBIT directly with any issues. As of today I have not heard back. There was no damage to the box and it appeared to be factory sealed.

It eliminates all the walking back and forth between between a sprinker head and the timer box when the sprinkler needs repair or adjustment--which is the main reason I bought it. I also don't have to use wifi, which is iffy in my area. Installation was simple.
