    I'm sure we've covered this at some point, but never heard of these guys until today.

    Looks neat-o! Sure would take the difficulty of adding to an existing system out of the equation. I assume it would add a lot of hands-on interpretation and subsequent adjustment of the system.

    Might try one when I'm done with my stockpile of moist-o-matic's.

    Kidding,

    I like the fact it is wireless. I wonder what the effective range is on one of these

    These will only work on their central systems i believe. They are not cheap either. You can rent them for around 60$ a month for one. They recommend 3-5 sensors per green and only have a battery life of 3 years before you have to dig and replace them.


    Good idea for golf course though.
