Web Based Controllers

Posted by trclac 77494 (My Page) on

I notice that Irrigation Caddy just released the W1 Wireless Web-Based Sprinkler Control. I'd really like to get a web-based controller, and utilize my iPhone or iPad (or computer) to control my settings. The simplicity and ability to easily to adjust settings seems very attractive over the old dial controllers. But before I dump a couple hunder dollars, has anyone had any experience with these? If so, does anyone have recommendations on the best brand/model?
I've been thinking of getting one for about a year, but with this new release, the temptation is back. I'd just like to know if anyone owns such a device and would recommend them.

Sounds too pat. Too much like a sales pitch. Not the average desire or experience of a home gardener. How often do you think you would need to actually use a remote device to tweak your system? JMHO

RE: Web Based Controllers

I can't control my sprinkler from Hong Kong (I'm in Texas) but I can control it from up to 1000 ft away (set station and run time) with my Hunter remote (think TV remote). And when I'm out working on/tweaking the system, I don't have to keep running back and forth to the controller box. But mostly I use it to run the stations from in my house. Love LOVE it!

RE: Web Based Controllers

:), use your phone for irrigation, that is very awsome
