own this and so far during a pretty non-hot season, it certainly saved me water over my prior smart unit.

time will tell if we get an actual hot summer though.

This seems like a really good deal. I currently have a Hunter manual controller that works very well and is very sturdy. How is the quality of this thing versus the hunter? Also, how hard is it to connect this thing when I already have a wire connected to my hunter controller? Will the wire that's currently going into the Hunter be able to control everything, or would a new wire need to be run to the sprinklers? Sorry, I don't know much about this. I like the sounds of being able to use Wi-Fi and also for it to know when it's going to rain and not operate. Thank you.

I had a hunter that bit the dust and got this a while ago. The wiring is the same, just match everything to the hunters wiring and it should work. So far it's worked great for me as I've been out of town a lot and able to water all my plants through sprinklers and drip

One thing is that my hunter had a power outlet built in the enclosure whereas this unit doesn't so I had to make an outlet outside next to the Orbit or hardwire power to the Orbit. Cheap and easy fix if you are comfortable with electricity. I setup an outlet right next to my Orbit rather than hardworking in case I need an outlet in that area of my house.

I bought one the last time it was on here, it has worked great for me. Just a straight move over from a manual unit, wiring is easy. It's so nice to be able to turn sprinklers on and off when I'm fixing them instead of walking back and forth. Also nice to control from anywhere. Wifi connection has been solid for me, no issues at all.

I have this and it is great. Love being able to control watering from anywhere in the world that has internet. I can sit on my couch and easily change watering schedules. It also is handy for testing zones without running into the backyard to operate a manual controller. Setup was very easy. I paid about $100 and it was well worth it. Check with your local water company. I received a $75 rebate from mine (EBMUD).

Try to exchange it? Was it sold by Amazon?
