Could be better Love my caddy, and the web interface to it is decent. But this app has a poorly designed and confusing user interface. The best way I can describe it is that it feels like I'm browsing a website where every single link pops open a new window. The start screen where you select a caddy to manage then start clicking buttons at the top is bizarre. The app also crashes alot on my galaxy s3. I can start the sprinklers though, so if you get your head wrapped around the strange UI then it's possible.
Works great Once I finally got it set up it worked great. I ordered the newer wifi unit and the developer did not state on their website that the app only works on the older non-wifi Caddy device. He sent me a link to download and install the beta version which has been working perfectly so perhaps it will be on the app store soon. My biggest complaint is that there is no way to speak with a live person - all support is done through email. This is typical if you are just buying an app, but when you are buying an actual device, there is almost always a customer support number to call if you run into trouble during the installation. This is the reason I am only giving 3 stars, but other than that I am very happy with the product. It is very easy to use and the UI on the phone is very clean. The one feature I did suggest is a rain delay button so you can set it to be on rain delay (off) for X number of days so you don't have to remember to manually turn it back on X days later. He said this feature will be added in a future release.
Can't initiate cycle and constantly crashes This app is unusable. It crashes constantly and although it can show the current status of my system, it can't start a program. Basically worthless.
Does not work on my nexus 4
Great product This works as advertised, except there are several times I get an "unable to connect to controller" message. Network is solid. It may be the controller box. There is an issue with being able to save a change to the start time of any of the programs. You just can not do it with this app.
Great App Great App, and Great product...... works perfect, is fast to connect and control. if you have the hardware the App is a no brained...... worth every penny.
NOTE: If the Program total time shows as excessively long do the following to fix the issue:
1. On a web browser open the caddy interface and go to settings -> Other
2. Uncheck the “Use #10 as Master Valve” checkbox, and save.
3. Now go into each program and zero out zone #10.
4. Now go back to settings and re-enable “Use #10 as Master Valve” and save.
That should solve the time issue.
