Zones and Programs

Zones and Schedules is where you set up the program for your watering. Hydrawise offers two styles of programming: Standard and Advanced. Most users find that Standard Mode is perfect for the needs of their landscape. Advanced Mode provides additional programming options.

Water Triggers

Water Triggers guide Hydrawise to make changes to the programs based upon your feedback. You can use the default weather triggers or create your own adjustments. Examples of triggers include shutting down irrigation before a rain event occurs, or watering more often during hot weather.


Hydrawise supports a range of sensors that provide direct communication to the controller via the sensor ports. The software supports standard open/closed contact sensors, such as rain, soil moisture, and other ON/OFF sensors. Hydrawise also supports flow monitoring when used with a Hunter HC Flow Meter.
