Essential Info

The Digital Sun SS10-K S.Sense Starter Kit adds intelligence to the watering process and makes your yard into a Smart-Lawn by measuring the moisture in the soil and working with the existing controller to water only when it is needed. S.Sense can keep the sprinklers off after it has rained or make sure that your lawn is getting enough water during the really hot part of the summer. The S.Sense System is designed to work with your existing sprinkler controller to reduce water wasted and keep your landscapes healthier.

  • Installation tool
  • More Info

    Most controllers, no matter which brand, tend to work in the same way. Your existing controller uses a simple timer to turn on and off the sprinklers in different zones depending on the time-of-day and the day of the week. It does not know if it is raining, or if the lawn is still wet. It only knows: if this is Tuesday at 7:15am, turn on the water in Zone 1 for 8 minutes, Zone 2 for 10 minutes, etc. Your existing controller is set to turn on the valves at a specific day of the week, time of day, and duration for each zone. The S.Sense Receiver works within that window and doesn't allow the valves to turn on if the lawn has enough moisture to last until the next scheduled watering.

    Keeps Landscapes Healthier
    S.Sense’s wireless sensors eliminate guesswork by ensuring your plants get just the right amount of moisture, no matter how conditions change. The system automatically regulates your controller to prevent over-watering, and warns you when plants aren’t getting enough water.

    Conserves Water
    Never run your sprinkler in the rain again! The S.Sense system prevents your sprinkler from watering when there’s enough soil moisture.

    Saves Time and Money
    Forget about adjusting your sprinkler settings to match the weather, "no water" days, or changing seasons. S.Sense waters only when it is really needed.

    Easy-To-Install Wireless System
    No trenches to dig or new hoses to run! Just attach the receiver to your existing sprinkler controller, place one or more wireless Sensors in the soil, and start enjoying a healthier lawn right away.

    Expandable Range
    Do you have a large estate? Just add a wireless Range Extender to increase the range of your signal. (Sold Separately)

    Innovative and Reliable
    All Digital Sun products are tough, durable, and designed to last. Just install the system and let it do the rest.

    Had my system for less than a year. System works as it should. But sensors have a short life span and become unresponsive to the receiver. Company is good at replacing them. First one went bad after a month after purchase and was replaced, second one went belly up also after a few months. System not really worth the trouble. Easier to get a inexpensive moisture meter and probe the ground.
