- What's Included
Access Anywhere Via the Web Control 4 Independent Zones No Service Fees Remote Scheduling Regulate Water Usage DIY Installation
The Melnor Wi-Fi AquaTimer Wireless Smart Water Hose Timer lets you directly control your yard watering from a tablet, PC, or iOS/Android smartphone, whether you are at home or away. The Wi-Fi AquaTimer includes a remotely controllable valve which connects directly to an outdoor hose faucet/spigot and splits that water feed into 4 watering zones. Each of these zones can be manually turned on or off via a simple push button control on the valve. However, the real magic of this device is that it offers the ability for each one of those zones to be individually controlled via a wireless remote connection from your PC or via an app. The valve wirelessly communicates with the (included) control unit which syncs up with your wireless router, allowing you access to your valve at anytime and anywhere, so long as you have access to the web.
This product is the ideal solution for those who don't have the ability to run a fixed, underground PVC irrigation system, or those that simply like the ease and flexibility of using an above ground hose watering system. You can help conserve water by remotely programing and scheduling times to have each zone turn on. Whether it is oscillating sprinklers, soaker hoses, pulsating sprinklers or drip irrigation lines...you can control it all. If you have more than 4 zones to cover, you an always add an additional Wi-Fi AquaTimer Valve Units (without the control unit). Take it a step further by adding a Melnor 3300 AquaSentry Automatic Rain Delay which will stop your valve from activating during periods of precipitation.
Installation ConsiderationsYou must have Internet access and a Wi-Fi router in your home along with either an Apple i Phone or iPad running /iOS 6.01 or higher, or a Android smartphone or tablet running Android 4.0 or higher. The control unit must have access to your wireless network.
Programming and Account ManagementYou can program and manage the Wi-Fi AquaTimer from any web browser that has Internet access. This can be done from most smartphones, tablets or computers using standard web browsers such as Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Firefox or Safari.

- Hard to use and worked only for a year Review by MAV
Hard to use and worked only for a year
It was very hard to set up. I had to get into the router and shut off everything except the single network that it was going to run on to get it to connect. There were also other settings I had to change. It was also difficult for it to remain connected and I had to go through the connection cycle multiple times. Despite the fact that the connector box was no more than 3 inches from the router. Finally, after I had it working well (and it did for the first summer), it didn't work the second summer. The valves inside the unit stopped turning. Overall, a very cool idea but poorly excuted.
