XTRA Smart™ Precision™ Soil Monitoring System (53812)

  • Turns most timers into a "smart" timer and meets the municipal requirements in many areas. Save up to 35% in annual water usage
  • Works with most irrigation timers including Rain Bird®, Hunter® or Orbit®
  • Wireless--up to 500' line-of-sight range
  • Easy to install - no digging or tools needed--does not require removal for mowing
The Toro Precision™ Soil Sensor continuously measures moisture levels in the soil and determines when to allow the irrigation controller to water, maximizing the efficiency of your irrigation system. There are two :wireless" components to the system - a receiver that hooks up to the irrigation controller, and a sensor that installs in the ground. Any time the moisture level exceeds the user-defined optimum level for the plant material, the controller is prevented from running any irrigation programs.
