If you are looking for a solid clock with max station capability, I recomend Hunter ICC. Their new remote is nice with good range.

I also suggest the Rain Bird modular. I think they are easier to program then the Hunters and they are reliable and affordable.

I agree with that. Problem is they never have the right parts or good parts for that matter.

This situation is the perfect example. Who warranties it if the Rainbird gets the mv light . Or the pro-c drops a zone on the module?

I generally tell my customers "look, use my stuff so its my problem if it doesn't work". Don't normally get much argument with that.

I have installed/tried both the Rainbird ESP and the Hunter Pro-C. My vote is for the Hunter Pro-C as it is more user friendly. Far easier for the homeowner to understand and even myself. Haven't tried the Rainbird remotes but use the Hunter Roam and with the Pro-C and am very satisfied. The Hunter has all the features you could ever want and the ability to expand in the future.

I'm tellin' ya, if you like the Hunter, then try Irrigation Direct. They are so close you might even think they came out of different doors of the same factory, yet the ID has more features AND it will work with the SRR remote too... (haven't tried the Solar Sync with it).

The controllers he uses were way overkill.
Out of curiosity, is this a licensed and insured installer, or a 'handyman'?

I've never seen a supplier that only sold, "overkill" clocks.

Which is exactly what I did recently.... but if you only install one brand, then maybe a brand specific remote is a good idea.
