New Irrigation Controller??
« on: June 06, 2016, 01:23:30 pm »
Not a lot of info. Maybe old news but looks new. Is it possible that "gocontrol" (Nortek?) has come out with a new z-wave irrigation controller??

Nortek site: http://www.nortekcontrol.com/pdf/literature/WI15Z-1-GoControl-Smart-Irrigation-Controller-Spec-Sheet.pdf

Amazon:  http://www.amazon.com/Nameinternal-WI15VZ-1-Smart-Irrigation-Controller/dp/B01E3BV118/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1465233683&sr=8-1&keywords=gocontrol+smart+irrigation+controller

They say it can be controlled by scenes.

Very interesting. Hope Vera can create a device or a plugin for it...

Looks interesting.
We would be interested in knowing if this product works well. Amazon has no reviews as of yet.

Called Nortek today and they said they expected to release it by the end of this year (2016).

I know some zwave+ devices work with VeraLite but how can you determine what does and doesn't work with VL before buying this product?

Does the HydroFLASH controller qualify for the smart irrigation controller according to the EPAS website?  In Charlotte as long as the unit qualifys there is a discount on Ccf billed.

Has anyone received one of these yet? Just wondering if this is going to be a good addition or if I should just go with the Rachio?

Although vera reps occasionally read and post here, this is not an official support site. I hear it's more likely you'll get a reply from vera if you post on their Facebook page

Nortek says the controller is still in beta testing with no ETA for purchase. The Amazon listing is a mistake.
