The Convenience of Wifi &
The Ease of Automation

Irrigation controllers range from the simple to the complex. These days, we are seeing some of the most sophisticated smart controllers available for residential use, which puts an unprecedented amount of control in the hands of the consumer.

Smart controllers allow homeowners to:

  • Control frequency
  • Set weather delays (rain & freeze)
  • Operate remotely (via phone or tablet)
  • Sense soil moisture
  • Program for plant type & environment

Most controllers involve a short set-up and, when completed, can be left to operate your system efficiently. During a change of season, mainly summer and winter, a slight adjustment to the programming may be required.

Smart controllers are the ultimate “set it and forget it” solution in the present day. This technology is fully customizable, adaptive to environmental changes, and operational from mobile devices.

At Advantage Irrigation, we program controllers to keep root systems strong while running at maximum efficiency. Irrigation controllers can cut down water use by up to 50% if used appropriately.

Our dedicated service technicians will audit the unique elements of your property – including slope, shade, plant life, and more – to find you the most suitable product and program.

Frequently Asked Questions

An irrigation controller, also known as a sprinkler timer, is a device that automates the watering schedule of an irrigation system. It allows you to program when and how long your system will water, making it a key component in maintaining efficient irrigation and a healthy landscape.

There are various types of irrigation controllers to fit different needs. Traditional controllers are set manually and adhere to a pre-set schedule. Digital or electronic controllers offer more flexibility with programming and often have features like multiple programs and seasonal adjust settings. Smart controllers are the most advanced and can adjust watering schedules based on weather data or soil moisture levels.

While it is possible to install an irrigation controller on your own, hiring a professional is often recommended. They can ensure the controller is properly set up, programmed, and connected to your irrigation system. This can help you avoid errors and ensure the most efficient use of water.

An irrigation controller allows for consistent, scheduled watering that avoids overwatering or underwatering. This consistency can save water by ensuring your landscape receives just the right amount it needs. Additionally, advanced controllers can use weather data or soil moisture sensors to adjust watering in real-time, reducing unnecessary watering when it’s not needed.
