I am a licensed landscape contractor. I have setup every one of these smart controllers on the market today. I was excited to hear Hunter had a smart timer on the market. I grabbed one for my own home. I guess the timer is fine. The app is soooo clunky. EVERY other smart timer app on the market is easier to use. Even the orbit B-hyve app is far superior. What a shame Hunter is a industry standard. While orbit is considered cheap junk.
Simple connection, intuitive app. Complete access and control of your irrigation system from anywhere. If you have questions, tech support does an excellent job of getting you going. Had the system for a few months and it has been totally reliable. I understand contractor fees but I wish homeowners had access to more features without annual fees, I mean we did buy the $200 controller.
Support is lacking. First of all there is no way to enter soil, sprinkler types, vegetation types anywhere in the app. I don't know how smart watering even works without those parameters. Support guy said "oh, just enter whatever amount of minutes". They just use forecast. I can use cheap rain sensor for that. There are cheaper controllers with WiFi. I am disappointed. I was set to get Hunter / Hydrawise.
It's good, but I am pretty sure that the water more often when hot features doesn't work. Water longer when hot does work, but it's not what my irrigation company recommends you do.
Great system, now I am able to check my irrigation from anywhere, anytime. I can start it, stop it, cancel; everything from my phone!!
So far so good. Set up is pretty straightforward, nice to have the controller go wherever I go.
