I just finished the installation of BlueSpray’s 16-Zone WiFi irrigation controller, so it’s time for an update with video and photos to show you how it went for me.
The hardware is pretty easy to setup and the software is simple to use. BlueSpray’s features are really dialed in for commercial use, with the ability to expand to 64 zones, water multiple zones simultaneously, and plot out your zones visually with Google Maps. Having all of your zones plotted out with a satellite photo of the property must be a life saver when it’s your business to manage multiple properties.
The BlueSpray unit also features inputs for a garage door sensor and a garage door opener. The software can shut your garage door automatically if it has been open for X number of minutes or close it at a specific time of day. I really love this feature, because it’s a damn fine alternative to $200 smart garage door controllers.
It’s also easy to connect to your BlueSpray from outside of your home network by logging into your account on http://www.bluespray.net
