    Default Irrigation Controller

    What are the current recommendations for irrigation controllers? I would prefer something Z-Wave or Wifi if possible as the location for the controller is not that accessible but I think cost is going to be a factor here.

    Possible options are
    GreenIQ - limited to 6 zones, not expandable but it is Wifi
    Solem 24V - Wifi, could be more than I wanted to spend but looks to do what I need
    OpenSprinker - looks promising, any idea what the import costs would be? I can't find any supplier in the UK

    Any other options I should be looking at?

    Thanks

    Have a look at Edyn as well.

    Thanks

    Looks like an interesting choice but might work out a bit pricy.

    I use Hydrawise (http://hydrawise.com) which has a great API. I wrote a module to integrate it with Crestron too, so can trigger or suspend zones dependent upon inputs from soil moisture sensors (it has functionality for these, but it's not granular) and such. Plus it integrates with Weather Underground so you can access local weatherstations to drive and refine the irrigation scheduling.

    They were just bought by Hunter, but I would be surprised were that a negative....
