WaterSense labeled irrigation controllers are devices installed in automatic sprinkler systems to avoid excess watering. They act like a thermostat for your sprinkler system telling it when to turn on and off. They are “smart” in that they connect to the internet and use local weather and landscape conditions to tailor watering schedules; some use sensors that can detect rain or soil moisture to avoid unnecessary watering.
