TRUST YOUR LAWN TO THE WEATHER
*The Weather Reach Controller Link is no longer available, but Smart Rain offers advanced smart irrigation technology. Visit Smart Rain for more information.
Your sprinkler system knows when to water, but does it know when not to? Weather determines how quickly or slowly water evaporates from your lawn, and a traditional sprinkler system is not equipped to adjust to varying water levels. Without a smart irrigation system, your lawn could be drowning in water or cooking in the sun.
Controller Link regulates the water levels of your landscape by collecting current weather conditions, so you never have to wonder when or where water is needed.
Use water wisely by watering according to plant and landscape needs. Get the right amount of water needed to be healthy.
When Controller Link waters according to current weather information, you can save 30% or more on your water bills. Imagine what you can do with the money saved from water bills.
Via the Internet, Controller Link gets current weather data via that is specific to your location. No need to water in the rain again. Controller Link determines the rate of evaporation from the soil, giving the optimal amount of moisture for healthy lawns and gardens, reducing watering during times of low evaporation.

DO I NEED A SENSOR IN THE GROUND?
The Weather Reach Controller Link gets its information from local weather data, so it does not need ground sensors to track water usage. However, ground sensors are still valuable for devices like the Smart Rain Controller. This controller can be used on its own, but results become even more accurate and useful when gathered from sensors. Smart Rain offers a Moisture Sensor, Rainfall Sensor, and Flow Sensor to ensure accurate readings and watering.
DOES SOIL TYPE MAKE A DIFFERENCE?
Yes, because soil is a reservoir. The soil moisture-holding capacity is based on soil type and root depth. The Controller Link’s optimum irrigation amount is based on the soil’s holding capacity. The Water Management Simulation can help you see the relationship between soil type and rooting depth, ensuring accurate watering.
IS THERE A SUBSCRIPTION COST?
- In markets with public weather stations, there is no subscription for the data.
- Commercial providers require a subscription to get data from their weather station network.
- Weather Reach Access is an optional, subscription-based service recommended for those who need remote management.
