Impressive Product
This product is pretty impressive. This is an upgrade from the EC-X wireless unit that I have purchased before. I noticed that they made improvements with the enclosure and made the device a little more weather tight. The range is also pretty impressive at 1000' making it easier to properly place the device. Older units were limited to about 150'. The most impressive part was the amount of control and detail that you get from the device. Humidity, sun exposure, and temperature are all very useful readings when adjusting zone times to efficiently water. I also was impressed with the SD card that came with the device. Without the SD card you cannot connect the weather station to the controller. Once installed the SD card has 40 years of weather data from all zip codes in the US. In the event that the weather station looses connection with the smart controller the controller still has historical information to make decisions from.

A great water saver
I bought the weather sensor to use because I was tired of reprogramming my controler by hand every month to adjust water needs. So far, the controller seems to adjust my watering by an amount greater than or equal to UC Davis watering guidelines for my region (saving me as much or more water than manual programming). You do however have to set some parameters manually (1. dry-out days, 2. Freeze temp and 3. Accumulated rainfall). Additionally, everytime you upload a new program to the TORO EVO contrioller via USB, you need to reset the weather sensor to the schedules, as it will auto-default to a rain sensor.

I have used TORO controllers and other in the past and I always seem to come back to Toro Controllers and on how easy they are to use and set up. With the new EVO controller I like how it is always being upgraded. Just needed the extras to make it even more efficient.

Is the Toro EVO-ws weather sensor compatible with the TMC-424? I have a Irritrol climate logic and does not work.
