One of the outstanding features of this sprinkler controller is that you can control it remotely which is quite ideal if you set it up outdoors. You can also use it with home automation systems that give you the ability to control it handsfree which is convenient. It can also be customised to water the plants according to the plant type or soil type to make them very healthy and it also saves you water when its rainy by cutting off the supply. However, its zoning schedules are quite complicated and you can only set up the zones from the website and not the app.
