So far so good after problem start-up
from Martha's Vineyard
Comments about : WiFi AquaTimer:
Ordered this last year and got caught in the installation problems involved with Xfinity Arris Router. Melnor phone support was good. At first they suggested that I reset the router settings. When I balked, they sent a secondary router/extender. And then I gave up at that point, the end of the season Too much to deal with.So this season, I decided to give it another go. Got the secondary router installed and then the unit it selfand software. It's great so far. I have my doubts about how long it will last (such as push buttons for manual override on unit) but I am all in on the concept. I have a summer house with vegetable garden and this allows me to water with the weather. It would be great if there were an update of this product to work with new routers.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

So far so good
from New Windsor, NY
The first time I tried to set up the aqua timer I was so frustrated. Upon calling the help number I was told I needed a mini router to boost our signal. (Cable company router and Apple iPad.). The company then sent one free of charge. When I tried to set it up the second time I was equally frustrated, not by the product but by the directions! I called the helpline again and was literally walked through the set up step by step. Kudos to the guys on the phone! I have had no problems/issues with this product since I set it up. I love the 4 hose option and the wifi control which comes in handy when the water needs to be shut off due to rain! It is very easy to program. The only complaint I have is the directions. They are not complete, seeming to skip steps, and not very explanatory. As a retired teacher I like things to be complete, concise and in order!

Waste of time if you have an apple router booster
By Ana Apple Extreme user
from Modesto, CA
I wanted this to run the over 2s00$ of soaker hose I purchased from the Gardener's supply. I had to return it when I learned that it could not be run by a wifi configured to an apple router booster. So I returned the system at 39$ shipping freight costs. Because Gardener's supply failed to reveal on their site and catalog that it was for "G" and below routers. Total waste of time and money. Geek squad time and money too.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
