HRC 400 WIFI - 8 Station WiFi Controller

Adding to its legacy of top-of-line controllers, Hydro-Rain is pleased to announce the addition of our most intuitive, feature-rich controller to date. The HRC 400 Wi-Fi combines the easiest to program controller on the market with the remote capabilities of Wi-Fi. But not to worry, for locations without Wi-Fi, contractors can use Bluetooth on their phone to set-up the controller or just simply use the intuitive interface to program the controller.

A great controller for replacement applications, the HRC 400 Wi-Fi is available in 8 and 16 stations to cover most residential and light commercial applications. For site managers and professionals, the multi-site management feature allows you to access all of your HRC 400 Wi-Fi connected controllers from your phone. Simply pick the controller you need to connect with from anywhere in the world and you have the controls. No more driving to job sites to change a run time or watering day.

And there's more! You can set up the schedule or let the controller do it for you. We've integrated the award-winning catch cup application right into the controller app! Once you enter your catch cup results, the controller will program itself based on those results and automatically adjust for seasonality. A rain sensor can be added to interrupt watering during rain events, or the weather feed can automatically adjust watering to prevent water waste.

The HRC 400 Wi-Fi builds on the easy programming & reliability of the HRC 100, offering all of the features you've come to love and so much more! The revolutionary dial on the HRC 400 Wi-Fi makes programming at the controller faster than ever.

The age of the Wi-Fi controller has arrived with the HRC 400 Wi-Fi!

Very intuitive cell phone App that I find easy to use. Controller easy to install and may youtube videos that help make it smoother. Controlling watering from cell phone is super easy. I liked the first controller so much that I purchased another for different location.

To have the ability to control from where ever you have cell service is worth its weight in gold. Easy set up no issues so far. I would give it a try for the price. I can not complain about it yet.

Can this controller be programed by just plugging in the cord without installation to the valves?
