Smart Irrigation Controllers

Smart Irrigation Controllers

Smart controllers use sensors and
weather information to manage watering
times and frequency.

Smart controllers are irrigation clocks that automatically adjust irrigation run times in response to environmental changes.

Smart controllers use sensors and weather information to manage watering times and frequency. As environmental conditions vary, the controller increases or decreases irrigation. Smart controllers have the ability to turn off your sprinklers automatically during rain, high wind or low temperature.

Smart controllers reduce outdoor water use by an average of 15 to 30 percent. They also reduce over watering, which can cause fungal disease and insect problems.

Rebate Coupons

If you plan to install a smart controller, use SNWA's smart irrigation controller coupon. Receive $200 or 50 percent off the purchase price of a qualifying clock, whichever is less.

To learn more about smart controllers, contact a landscape professional. Since proper installation and set-up requires in-depth knowledge of soil, plants and other various factors, work with a licensed landscape professional who is experienced with these irrigation clocks.

While customers using smart controllers must comply with the mandatory watering schedule and know their watering group, member agencies MAY provide a watering schedule exemption. Time of day restrictions still apply.

Smart Irrigation Clock Manufacturers

These manufacturers offer irrigation clock models or components that connect to existing controllers. These "smart controllers" use information such as type of soil, plant-type and either soil moisture or current weather conditions to automatically adjust irrigation schedules.
