ETwater offers three smart irrigation controller devices for quick set-up to remotely manage and monitor watering real-time from any computer, tablet or Smartphone. All three smart controllers access the powerful ETwater web-based smart irrigation system that does automated weather-based scheduling with ET and rain forecast adjustments by zone/station, virtually eliminating overwatering and runoff. Also, ETwater automatically schedules irrigation to occur in compliance with any municipal restrictions or mandatory watering days, and will send alerts based on any unusual situations, such as abnormal water flow rates.
ETwater smart controllers connect to the internet over cellular data networks with no cables or WiFi necessary. ETwater SmartBox is designed for new construction or when an old system needs to be completely replaced. The ETwater Smartworks Replacement Panel upgrades old controllers where the enclosure and valve wiring are still good, and can be installed in less than hour into existing enclosures, with no need to rewire the valves. ETwater HermitCrab is the only retrofit controller available that can instantly convert to smart irrigation an existing controller by plugging into the remote control port. It’s compatible with over 50 different host controller models, including Rain Bird, Rain Master, Weathermatic, Irritrol, Superior, Toro and Hunter controllers.
