Best WiFi Sprinkler Controller Systems

Find and compare the best wireless smart sprinkler controller for your lawn and garden. Monitor usage, decrease water use, and remotely control via Android or iOS.

Smart sprinklers and irrigation controllers can simplify home lawn and garden care, reduce water consumption, and help farmers get the most out of their crops.

Instead of fixed timers, these systems draw on data from sensors, weather forecasts and plant-care databases to determine watering needs and deliver just enough moisture at just the right time. Lower your water bill, and check up on your plants from anywhere in the world using mobile and web apps.

The following Channel Guide will help you:

  • Determine which connectivity type you need (WiFi or GSM Cellular)
  • Get app reviews, and see if the box integrates with your other smart home system.
  • Filter based on number of available zones and integration with smart moisture sensors.
