    We have a homes association that wants to switch to an all wifi sprinkler system. about a square mile of neighboor hoods, with many islands throughout that have sprinkler heads. Is something like this do-able? Would you have to have one central broadcast tower or would you attach an antenna to each Control unit and have them talk to eachother from a master unit?

    Do WIFI sprinkler systems even EXIST?!

    Do you want each zone controlled wirelessly?

    Why would they want to switch to a wireless sprinkler system? Are they on something?

    Some people are so stupid! I'm not talking about the poster, I'm talking about the HOA. I don't see why anyone would want a WiFi irrigation system.

    What are they going to do, turn on zone 13 from the Blackberry when they are at work?

    They are obviously overcharging home owner fees and need a way to justify it!

    Tell them I'll do the maintenance then. I can find ways to spend their money.

    The bells and whistles are cool, the wi-fi could be done;
    bottom line is there is nothing better than a tech at the site.

    Did the OP say what this was all going to accomplish?
