Project Description

Basic Features

The “Basic” mode programs exactly like the conventional controllers used by most manufacturers. There’s no need to learn a new method. The “Smart” mode is where the power lies. Combined with our SLW Series Weather Stations, SmartLine becomes an ET-Based water-saving controller that adjusts watering times 365 days a year.  
ET Watering adjusts the duration, frequency, and soak time by several factors. Weather Data combined with geographical location, sprinkler type, plant type, soil type, and a fine tuning option, enables your SmartLine controller to make precise watering decisions. 
The days of irrigation controllers being programmed once, and left alone for months, is over. The SmartLink Network gives you access to your SmartLine controllers via your Computer, Tablet, or Smartphone. Irrigation Management made simple, affordable, and packed with features. 
No flashlight required in dark basements and garages. No battery required! On board memory chip retains time, date and program information even during a power outage.
Automatically comply with local water restrictions; eliminate irrigated water lost to evaporation in the heat of the day; stop irrigation on lawn maintenance days; never water on the date of an annual event (ex: July 4th). A monthly watering budget % can be set up by program to automatically adjust zone run times for seasonal changes.

Advanced Menu

Locate hidden valves by simply listening for the audible chatter of the solenoid created by a unique electrical frequency. (U.S. Pat #7406363)
Displays the electrical current reading of each zone for quick troubleshooting and a proactive approach to maintenance.
Achieve hydraulic control with settings for zone-to-zone delays, master valve timing, and master valve On/Off by zone.
Allows contractor to easily store a default program and retrieve the saved program in the event a customer improperly reprograms the controller. Perfect for Grow-in periods too.
Eliminate run off by setting the maximum allowable run time and minimum soak time by program.

The Advanced Menu contains 17 tools, ranging from diagnostics, troubleshooting, and advanced water management tools. Above only scratches the surface.
