Selecting a Location #

Tip: If replacing a controller, it is helpful to take a photo of the wires before you remove them from the old controller.

When choosing a location for your Controller, consider the following:

  • Choose a location near an electrical outlet.
  • Locate it where there is a good Wi-Fi signal.

Tip: You can check this using a smart phone. (Find a location that has a minimum of two bars.)

  • Ensure operating temperatures are not below 32° or above 158° F (below 0° or above 70° C).
  • Place it away from direct sunlight.
  • Make sure there is 9″ of space to the left of the sprinkler controller box, this allows the
    door to swing open after installation.
  • There needs to be easy access to sprinkler wires (from valves).

Important: Controller is weather-resistant to UL-50 and ETL® Listings, but should not be placed in areas where continuous water could cause damage
