The majority of gardeners prefer to water at sunrise or sunset. It’s the best time to minimise water evaporation and leaf scorch, but it is not always convenient to do it yourself at these times of the day.
Day Light Sensor The Hozelock Sensor Plus Controller takes care of this for you as it includes a day light sensor that automatically adjusts your watering schedule to start at sunrise and sunset, with a choice of daily operating schedules.
No need to programme every again, it will automatically change the start times to coincide with sunrise and sunset as the seasons change.
Watering Schedule You can select from watering durations of 2, 5, 10, 20, 30 or 60 minutes and is easy to adjust in case you need to react to changing weather conditions, without ever having to refer back to the instruction book.
The watering schedule can be set to operate every day for hot and dry conditions and has adjustable settings to reduce watering down to every 2 days, every 3 days, every 5 days or once a week for plants that require less water.
Water Now If you need to dispense water outside of the automatic schedule you can use the Water Now button to turn on the water. Press the button to select watering for a 10, 30 or 60 minute duration. Simply press again to cancel the operation for shorter periods.
Battery Status Simply press the button to check the status of the batteries. The 3 LED lights will illuminate to indicate the strength of the remaining battery life.
Failure Prevention Mode A built in safety feature detects when the battery levels have dropped to a level that could fail whilst a watering schedule is in progress. The LED indicator lights will flash red when the batteries need to be replaced.
Easy to Install The Sensor Plus Controller is easy to set up, simply insert 2 x AA batteries (not supplied) and select the required watering pattern from the dials. No complex programming skills required. It is supplied with a choice of 21mm (1/2” BSP), 26.5mm (¾” BSP) or 33.3mm (1” BSP) adaptors for connection to most garden taps.
Versatile Usage The Sensor Plus Controller is a versatile unit that can be used with Garden Sprinklers (up to 10 Bar), low pressure micro irrigation watering (1.5 Bar) or Water Butts (0.1 Bar) due to the unique ball component.
