Why make such a big deal out of this? All you need is the right equipment.

Guys, please give me some grace. I hate throwing my 2 cents in when it comes to endorsing products in this forum, so I do this only in hopes it might help someone with a tight budget or to help you guys sell a job based on the following. The Hunter IMMS Central Control Software can be obtained for free as a "demo" disc. It is fully functional for one, and only one, controller. The minute you need to fire up two or more controllers you need to buy the software. However, it lets someone who wants all the bells and whistles for his own home or estate take advantage of the software for free. The caveat (you knew this was coming) is that you do need to buy the manufacturer's controller and associated communications hardware to fire this critter up. With demo software you are limited to LAN/Ethernet, Phone Modem, Hardwire, or GPRS Cell COM Modules. UHF radio would require a second controller, used as a hub, for radio communications and necessitate the purchase of the full version software. Hope this helps. Thanks guys. Always interesting and informative.

We run Rainbird IQ, ET Water and Tucor systems, but have yet to try the IMMS system. I guess I am a little hesitant to try due to all the rumors about Hunter coming out with a new system. Can you share any information or elaborate a little on this?

And I can control the systems operation year-round without scheduling a garage door opening?
How far?

Sorry so many questions, I will wet my pants too, if it does this magic.

Ten Thousand?
Well how do you get it?

I have started using a controller made by Aqua Management. No software to buy. Everything is online so it can be controlled by cell phone, tablet, or pc. It has flow sensing and weather station capabilities. I have put in 30 or so this year and so far they are working well.

Hunter is a good option.
RB okay.
ET Water
Weathermatic
Signature has a nice homeowner model, computer controlled.
RainMaster
Calsense

All options, in no particular order. RM and Calsense a pretty penny, some of the others, still a good penny.
