Toro PSS-KIT Precision Wireless Soil Sensor and Receiver Kit

Leveraging Toro sensing technology used on high-end commercial sites and world-class golf courses around the globe, the Toro Precision Soil Sensor reduces water waste by continuously measuring moisture levels in the soil and determining when to allow your controller to water, maximizing the efficiency of your irrigation system. Communication between the sensor probe and receiver is completely wireless, so installation is quick and easy with no digging required.

Features & Benefits

  • Works with Nearly All Irrigation Controllers: Can be installed on any irrigation controller, including competitive models.
  • Prevents Overwatering: Continuously measures soil moisture levels and determines when to allow your irrigation controller to water, making sure just the right amount of water is applied.
  • No Digging Required: Communication between the sensor probe and the receiver is completely wireless, with up to a 500' range (line of sight).Installation doesn't disturb the soil, giving you accurate moisture readings starting as soon as the sensor is put in the ground.
  • Automatic Calibration: The sensor will automatically detect the soil type and adjust all calculations accordingly.
  • Freeze Detection: The only soil sensor to offer freeze detection that prevents irrigation when temperatures approach freezing.
  • Electrical: Receiver input power: 24 VAC, Probe: Three AA batteries
  • Temperature: Operating (Probe): 14 degrees F to 170 degrees F, Operating (Receiver): 14 degrees F to 140 degrees F, Storage: -22 degrees F to +149 degrees F

A bunch of headaches
First unit received unable to be programmed properly. 6 calls between Toro and myself got nowhere. Finally, reached a tech who understands. He sent a 2nd unit, which also failed to work properly. Now, just received 3rd unit and connected. Due to rain, it may be several days for it to come on. Tech gave me his personal number to call, if I need additional help. The concept is good, but verdict still out on this product. If can get it to work, will give a 4 or 5 star

Rain sensor failed. Thinking this would be better.

I have three zones in my yard, all require different water requirements. Can I wire a sensor on each valve? My system is a water caddy.
TimGV on Jul 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I am not familiar with your particular system, but the sensor regulates watering by preventing all of the valves on your system from watering. If your system allows for a rain gauge, it would connect in place of a rain gauge. So, the answer to your question is no. However, if you water areas that require more water for longer periods of time and areas that require less water for shorter lengths of time, you may find that the one sensor will be sufficient. You can move the sensor around your yard as well to see which location works best. I would suggest putting it in an area that requires the most water and gets the most sun. That area would then get enough water. You would decrease the watering time for the areas that do not need as much water. All areas would get watered at the same frequency, but for different lengths of time.
I noticed that the prcision soil senor stand alone has been discontinued by Toro. Is there a replacement? Why was it discontinued?

Toro PSS-KIT Precision Wireless Soil Sensor and Receiver Kit. I have a Hunter sprinkler system. Will this product work with it? I have a Hardie Irrigation Value Timer (Rain Dial)
A shopper on Apr 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I don't know specifically about your sprinkler system. However, the way it's hooked up should give you a pretty good idea. The sensor receiver is connected at the place where you would connect the wires from the rain sensor in your system (assuming that you have a rain sensor). The soil sensor replaces the rain sensor, so the rain sensor would not be used. Eliminating the rain sensor shouldn't be a problem because the soil moisture sensor is better than the rain sensor when it comes to determining if the plants need water. If the rain would be sufficient to turn off the sprinklers, the soil would also become wet enough to cause the soil sensor to turn off the sprinklers.
Does this work with the EVO?
ht on Jun 9, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I'm not sure exactly what you mean by "the EVO".

It works fine with my Toro Evolution Modular Sprinkler Controller.

Can this be used on a system that provides irrigation for 23 small homes?
tom g on May 6, 2013
BEST ANSWER: The sensor that controls the water is placed in the soil in one place. The only way this would work for 23 homes at once is if all of the homes could have their sprinklers shut off at the same times, all of the time. For example, if a specific home has a sunnier exposure than the home with the sensor, the sunnier home would dry up faster after it rains, and the sensor (at the lower sun location) would indicate that the soil was moist longer, so the system would not allow the sunnier location to get watered as much as it needs. If the sensor was placed at a sunny location, the sensor would make the sprinkler system turn on earlier than if it was placed in a low-sun location, so it would get adequately watered, but the low-sun locations would get too much water. In theory, it is possible to set up a system using multiple sensors, but that would require a different sprinkler controller capable of separately controlling different sprinkler circuits, each with its own soil sensor. Toro does make such a controller.
