Hydrawise Start Delay

I like techy gadgets and I’m usually the first one to buy new technology so the Hydrawise had some real appeal.

However the one feature that really lets it down is the time delay between turning a station on and it actually operating.

When you’re servicing sprinklers having to wait for one minute just for the water to come on means time wasted and a half hour job can become an hour. Hydrawise has sold out to Hunter now, so here’s hoping Hunter can do something to make the controller operate more efficiently.

Aside from this one problem its a good controller.

    this is a latency / lag delay caused by the internet. When sending a manual run / stop command from the application it can take anywhere between 1-60 seconds before the controller receives that command which is why you see this delay. The development team are working on changing this but at the moment this is normal in all cases.

      Yes I was aware of the issue but I think until its solved it will be a bit of a deal breaker 🙂
