Hunter MWS Mini Wind/Rain Weather Station
Control irrigation system operation with sensors for wind; rain and temperature.
Having a climate like a smorgasbord can make for some tricky business when it concerns your irrigation system. Of course; you can simply look out the window and decide whether to turn on the sprinklers manually each day; but that defeats the purpose of an automatic system. What you really need is an automatic device that can make the decision whether there is too much rain; too much wind or too much cold to do the watering. With the Hunter Mini-Weather Station you get each of Hunter's three different sensor devices in one single convenient unit. The Mini-Clik® rain sensor shuts sprinklers off in a storm and keeps them off; automatically compensating for the amount of rainfall that occurred. The Wind-Clik® shuts off systems during periods of high wind; then automatically resets the system when conditions are more favorable. Easy to mount (it attaches to your controller with just two wires) and easy to use; the Mini-Weather Station takes all the guesswork out of when you shouldn't water.

In areas where winterizing is not necessary, but the threat of an occasional freeze is common, it's a wise idea to have a device that automatically shuts off irrigation systems at a predetermined temperature. Just think if the sprinklers came on as usual and a freeze had set in, you could be faced with a landscape frozen over; with ice on adjoining driveways, sidewalks and even roadways a real possibility. The results are not only hazardous to the life of your lawn and plants, it can also be hazardous to those who may walk or drive nearby.
With the Hunter Freeze-Clik you can prevent irrigation systems from activating by automatically stopping the flow of water when the outdoor temperature drops to a near freezing level. When the temperature rises above that set point, Freeze-Clik simply resets your irrigation system to its regular cycle. Easy to mount, easy to use, Freeze-Clik can also be used in conjunction with Hunter's other weather sensing devices to guarantee the optimum effectiveness of an irrigation system in virtually all types of weather.
