What is an irrigation controller?

How do you install an irrigation controller?
Installation depends on the type of sprinkler controller you have. Most are plug and play into an existing powerpoint. A wall-mounted model must be wired to the electrical system and placed at eye level near an electrical outlet. To set up a smart controller, you must have a local WiFi connection and pair it with an app on your smartphone, tablet or computer.
How do I choose an irrigation controller?
Before you buy an irrigation controller, know the number of zones you will be watering. A zone is a landscape section with plants with similar water requirements. Residential landscapes usually have between 2 and 9 zones, while commercial landscapes can have 30 or more zones. Look for a controller with more zones than you need to allow for future expansion.
The next important factor is the number of programs in the controller. A program lets you set a watering schedule for a certain day of the week. Most irrigation timers will have two or more programs. At The Landscape Store, you can choose from our extensive selection of sprinkler controllers.
