Questions & Answers

what is the timers main power source?

Asked by: john
The transformer needs to be plugged into any 110 volt outlet to supply the necessary 24 volts to the controller. The wire that came with mine was to short but it was very easy to cut the power wire and splice in a longer piece of wire.

is this for outdoor
Asked by: pari
No, this is an indoor timer. They do have a outdoor timer that has a cabinet on it to protect the panel from the weather.

Will this run on batteries exclusively?

My garden is quite some distance from the house. Will this unit run on batteries only, or does it need 110 v. constantly? I don't want to run a power cord (plus 4 water hoses) that far....
Asked by: JohnnyBob
I believe only for short period of time. It is mostly designed for power outage.

Orbit 4-Station Easy-Dial Electrical Sprinkler Timer, Greens is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 133.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Too easy to install... Had a $70 Hunter X-Core that went bad after just one year. They have a 2 year warranty FROM DATE OF MANUFACTURE. Found out mine was over a year old before it was installed, so I looked around and found this one. I only have 4 zones so it was perfect. The Hunter had separate screw terminals for zone wires and power. This has push in terminals for the zones and a plastic plug for the power. Had it running in less than 10 minutes. I figured if the controllers won't last very long (all made in China anyway) why not spend $20 to replace? Wait, this one has a 6 year warranty? Winning! No mounting screws so make sure you have some along with drywall anchors. Orbit makes indoor/outdoor and more zone models as well. I like it. Happy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad timer, has a mind of its own... I purchased this Orbit 6-station Indoor Timer to replace an original aging timer that died. The installation was simple and initial program setup fairly easy. However, during the first couple of weeks as I tried to change the program for better watering schedule, I then noticed that the timer was activating during non-programmed times. For instance, I initially programmed specific days of the week, and the timer started on non-selected days. So then I cleared all programs and tried the "Even" days program. The timer still activated on "Odd" days. So then I cleared programs and tried the "Interval" set for every 2 days. Still the timer was activating every day. I thoroughly audited all start times for both A and B programs to verify only the one run start time cycle was programmed. After trying now 3 weeks to get this timer to function correctly I am giving up and going to replace it with another brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Little Timer Installed this digital timer after my 20-year old mechanical timer quit working. I bought it because it was cheap, and worried I might regret that, but after one year it works perfectly and is more reliable than the old more expensive mechanical one. The timer is half the size of the old one, and the plastic is flimsy, but it WORKS every day. The LCD screen is easy to read. It is also much easier to set with the big dial on the side. It came with good instructions. I'm very happy I bought this inexpensive timer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Initial review Just bought myself a new home! This was already installed (one in the front one in the back) I had trouble setting it up (due to say the construction workers leaving half the water on and half off) but after a quick call to the orbit company. i was talking to a real person very quickly. they helped me though the whole process of checking where the water was not getting into the system and gave me lots of great advice. i would recommend this company and product solely on their support. ( and the product is good to.) i'll see over the next week if it does any "ghost" watering.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding product I don't write reviews very often but this gem of a product deserves a review. I opened up the package and examined the controller for just a few minutes. It is so straightforward and clear in its operation that I never unfolded the manual. Simply outstanding. I was up and running in 15 minutes. Note, it even has a port for a rain sensor if you wish to install one of those. I went with Orbit because the unit I was replacing was an Orbit and it was probably 10 to 15 years old. Hopefully this one has the same longevity.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from free would be overpriced my third and last time replacing this unit. i gave up trying interval as it would come on every day. so i tried just three specific days a week: Mon, Wed and Fri. it is Sunday morning and my sprinklers just came on just like the last one that LIKED to turn on Sunday even though not programed. This is not complicated to program and i checked A and B to see if i had a programming error - it does not show Sunday as being programed and yet still comes on... an email to Orbit corporate a month ago for the last one with the same problem still goes unanswered. Why is HD selling this junk?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Would Give "Zero" Stars if Possible In retrofitting my high volume output sprinklers to low volume, I needed to replace my controller to provide better flexibility in programming. The tech that performed the retrofit recommended the Orbit Easy-Dial controller, saying it provided every function needed, was easy to program, and was very cheap. He was correct on all of these, but unfortunately I found out immediately after installation that my sprinkler valves were not coming on as programmed. The first day, they came on at different times than programmed. The next day they came on when that day was programmed for no sprinklers to run. I double checked the programming and found it to be as entered, the controller simply didn't conform to the programming. The third day returned it to Home Depot. No matter how easy a controller is to program, if it doesn't work right it is worthless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Value, easy to install and program This is a basic timer, not a lot of bells and whistles, but it should get the job done for most applications with 6 stations or less. If replacing an existing unit, install should be very simple and quick, less than an hour. You do have to provide your own screws to hang the unit. You have two programs, A&B with up to 4 start times each which should meet most needs. I use program A for my sprinklers and program B for drip system. The dials are well labeled, easy to use and the unit is very easy to program. A nice feature of the unit is the next run time will flash on the unit so you always know what program and time is next to come on.
