Control your sprinkler system from anywhere in the world with the BlueSpray Web Based Wireless Irrigation Controller. The controller has built-in Wi-Fi to send and receive commands from your free online BlueSpray account. No software or service fees are required. Just log into your account through a PC, tablet or smartphone to adjust settings, set schedules, view history reports, and more.
- Control sprinklers from anywhere you have Internet access
- Create custom watering schedules for each season
- Automatically adjust watering for rain or cold weather
- Optionally integrate the controller into a home automation system
- Works with any standard sprinkler system
Designed for use with any standard irrigation system, BlueSpray can either replace your existing controller or be used as a new controller. Your sprinkler wires connect to the BlueSpray controller, which mounts on a wall with screws.
Setting Up the Interface
When you first log into your BlueSpray account, you will be able to set up the user interface to match your home’s sprinkler system. The interface includes selectable illustrations of home properties with lawns. Choose the illustration that best matches your property, or upload your own photo (from Google Earth/Maps), then drag and drop sprinkler head icons onto the illustration/photo to indicate where sprinklers are located in your yard.
Sprinklers are grouped into zones by the controller. You may include only one sprinkler in each zone, or group multiple sprinklers into one zone for quick control over an entire group. Zones can be named for easy recognition.
Controlling the Sprinkler System
- Select individual zones and set the length of watering time for each
- Turn zones on/off
- Set watering run times based on seasons (dates)
- Schedule daily watering with start times and run times
- Set sprinklers to run on even/odd days, weekdays, every “X” number of days, etc.
- Program the system to adjust watering based on weather
The controller features a built-in weather program that allows you to choose how your sprinkler system operates under certain weather conditions. It draws current weather data and forecasts from the National Weather Service (NOAA), and uses that information to adjust watering schedules. For example, you can program the system not to water if there is a 50% chance of rain and the temperature is less than 50 degrees F. Wind speed and extended rain forecasts can also be used as determining factors.
In addition to built-in programmable settings, the sprinkler system can be controlled according to data from external devices, such as a rain sensor or temperature sensor. The controller can even integrate into a home automation system.
BlueSpray also offers a door opener expansion kit (Part BSDK, sold separately) that allows the BlueSpray irrigation controller to open and close your garage door in conjunction with your garage door opener. This is especially useful if your sprinklers shoot water toward your garage and you need to make sure your property does not get wet during watering. (The door opener kit can be used with any motorized door).
