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: nevadacarol
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

12-Station In/Out Timer with Remote is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 70.

My older 9 station Orbit recently started to go haywire ( I think it was about 12 years old)so I recently purchased this new 12 station with remote. It's been up and programed for about two weeks and its been running very well. I was considering going with Rain Bird but they didn't have a remote which I really wanted and am glad that I got with this newer Orbit. It's the bomb for sure, especially for adjusting and replacing heads and adding or ending watering time if needed. Its the only model in any brand that I found to have a remote outside of the smart timers. It was pretty easy to install and program. The only down side I have seen with this unit is that the clock loses about 5 minutes per week so I have to go out every once in a while to change it. My older Orbit also did this too ! Before I installed this one I tried their smart B-Hyve timer. I pulled it out and returned it for this one. I really wanted a smart system but I just had way to many issues with it. I even checked the reviews on many other brands of professional models of smart timers and they too had many issues so this was my go to for now until the smart timers get better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy set up and great remote Have a 9 zone system, took 20 minutes to switch out the timer, wiring is easy. The transformer is built into the unit so there is no external transformer to hassle with. Set up is straight forward. The remote is awesome! It's great for if your fixing or adjusting heads, turn the zone on and test. You can also use the remote to manually water all zones or only the ones you want at that time. Press the zone you want and press 2min, or 10min, or 30min and it starts. You can also press only the zones you want to water like, 1,3,5,8 and press the time. Also has a Rain Delay button on the remote which will prevent watering for 24 hours. Great for new sod or flowers areas, simply use the remote to turn that zone on to get some extra water. One night there were cats howling in the back yard and I used the remote to turn zone 1 on to scare the cats away. It was awesome, all from my kitchen table and the remote.

I had to replace an existing Orbit 12-Station Timer with Remote because Mother Nature sent one of her Lightning Bolts that took it out. I looked for the same Orbit Timer & found it at Home Depot. My property is 2.5 Acres & 90% is irrigated. We have 3 irrigation controllers with a total of 23 zones for our property.

Installed unit about 2 weeks ago with the wireless rain sensor.Installation was quite simple had it installed in about 1.5 hrs and it took only minutes to program.
