Hunter Industries introduced the new WiFi-based Pro-HC controller, built to work with our innovative Hydrawise web-based software, and designed with the needs of irrigation contractors and homeowners in mind.
The sturdy Pro-HC controller offers contractors a rugged enclosure and Internet accessibility, allowing them to efficiently manage all of their sites from anywhere, any time. The Pro-HC is offered in either 6, 12 or 24 station fixed indoor and outdoor units. It also has a dedicated master valve to help prevent water loss and supports Hunter’s pump start relay.
The Pro-HC comes with large terminal strips for easy installation of solenoid wiring. Among the Pro-HC’s many attractive features is Hydrawise Predictive Watering, which adjusts schedules based on forecast temperature, rainfall probability, wind and humidity. The Pro-HC allows users to select a local weather station and set watering triggers for predictive watering adjustments.
Predictive watering provides significant water savings to keep any landscape healthy and beautiful. Monitoring water use and the state of the piping system can be done easily with the optional flow meter. The Hydrawise software also allows for automatic notifications to alert users of broken pipes or sprinklers. Configuration of the Pro-HC is easy and can be done with a standard web browser or the Hydrawise app using a wireless password.
