This four-outlet timer lets you set a watering schedule for four different hoses – without even going outside. Controlled via Wi-Fi, the two-part system consists of a faucet-mounted four-outlet unit and a controller unit that you keep indoors.
You program your watering schedule using a web page that can be accessed from any computer, tablet or phone with an internet connection. The simple, easy-to-read interface allows you to see all the settings at a glance and program each valve individually with drop-down menus. You can choose one of 11 preset watering intervals ranging from once a week to six times a day, or make a more advanced schedule that only activates on specific weekdays, or only on even or odd days of the month.
Watering durations of up to 240 minutes can be set in one-minute increments. An optional ECO mode intermittently pauses the flow to let water sink into the soil, reducing runoff and evaporation. You can override the programming at any time without losing your settings.
Buttons on each outlet let you manually turn the water on or off. You can also use the web page to start a one-off watering session, selecting a duration from 5 minutes to an hour, or to introduce a rain delay of up to seven days at a time (the web page helpfully displays a weather forecast for your area).
Works with water pressure of 20 to 80 psi. As with all water connectors, remove it from the faucet before frost hits to prevent damage. Requires four AA batteries (not included). Easy to set and easy to change, no matter where you are.
