Anyone have experience with the hunter smart controllers. My irrigation guy told me that they are easier to use for them than these rachio controllers because they can still be controlled at the controller.

I've been using an orbit wifi irrigation controller..... it was very easy to replace my old RainBird controller. Cost was around $80 when I found it (probably EBAY) but it's sold at Amazon for $84.09.

Reading the function...the orbit has smart watering...tell it the conditions, type of irrigation and it will "smart water" for you. The rachio has different things...if you need to stop watering when you pull into your driveway...etc.

If you're a techno geek the rachio probably has more options. If you just want to water your plants/lawn on an intelligent schedule with WiFi control/setup....go for the orbit.

I recommend the orbit....save some money...program and test the system using your phone or ipad, etc.

With this version you are able to control it at the controller. Very simple 2 button operation. Also, use it with IFTTT.COM and customize the heck out of it.

I bought this about a year ago. It works well and was easy to set up. Never did get my rebate that I applied for however.
