Smart irrigation controllers automatically tailor watering schedules and run times on sprinklers or drip systems to meet specific landscape needs. These systems use weather information and/or site conditions to determine how much water to apply and when to run. Once the smart controller is installed and programmed, little additional monitoring is required.

Studies show most smart controllers will save up to 20% of the water applied by a traditional controller. This is a significant water savings because, in the Valley, up to 70% of household water use is outdoors.

Smart irrigation controllers vary in their complexity. Installation requires some basic electrical knowledge and can be accomplished by most homeowners in approximately three hours. If you choose to hire someone to install the controller, please check to make sure they are licensed, insured and bonded.
