Product Description

The Irrigation Caddy ( IC ) device is an ethernet based irrigation control system. The system allows the user to control and schedule an irrigation system from any computer with a web browser. No special software or clients are required, just a Web Browser on a computer. Installation is simple. Connect the IC to your network using an ethernet cable, and the IC will automatically obtain a DHCP IP address from ( typically ) your DSL/Cable router. Then connect the valve wires to the IC and the IC is ready to run. Setting the schedules is also very simple. The IC can be accessed using your Web Browser from your home computer. The interface is clear and user friendly. Simply tell it what days it should water, and at what times, and the IC will save the information. The Irrigation Caddy supports "Even / Odd", "Every X Days", and "Days of the Week" scheduling. The information is kept on the IC, even if the power is turned off. Technical Specs:

Easy to install, setup and use.

Also, this IP address will work from your iPhone, iPad, or Android device, once it's connected to your wifi network.
Nice to be able to walk around the back yard and easily turn on/off the zones for testing and adjusting.

I purchased this product a few months ago. I wanted something with the promise of wireless, I also needed at least two controllers that wouldn't interfere with each other on a network. The company couldn't guarantee the wireless adapter would work so, I bought one hoping for the best. It works great.

I purchased Irrigation Caddy Model ICEthS1 and a refirbished Netgear WNCE2001 WiFi adapter. I used static IP addresses. The users manual for the irrigation caddy says that it is for indoor use and the internet adapter is obviously meant for indoor use. Not one to follow directions, I have mine installed in an old Toro panel that I found and mounted it to the side of the house. So far so good. We'll see how it stands the test of time outdoors.

The irrigation caddy has a built in web server which is how you interface with it. As long as you set each one to a different IP address and give it a different name, you can have as many as you want on your home network. I can access the irrigation caddy on any computer in the house. I can also access it from my iphone by just typing the IP address into Safari.

The web interface is pretty good and has more options than I'll ever use.

When I sent a note to KGControls, my message was answered fairly quickly. We exchanged a few e-mails back and forth. When I went to place an order, I was told that if I could wait a couple of weeks, an improved revision was coming out. I liked the fact that they let me know and didn't just sell me old stock. I waited for the new version.

These guys are obviously a small outfit, maybe even one entrepeneur. Whatever their status, they are enthusiasts and value customer service. I plan on buying a second one this summer once I sort out some more of my irrigation.

I can't wait to see what additional features they build as they continue to develop their products.

Update: July 13 2014

Irrigation Caddy stopped working, honey and gardener joined the voices and started to complain for grey grass, so had no choice but to troubleshoot or go back to orbit. It's back to normal after following few steps of troubleshooting and getting it to work.

Case you're interested in troubleshooting and fix steps

1. Disconnected all the wires, connected to router directly, did a factory reset few (5 to be precise) time and got it back
2. While at it, upgraded to latest official release firmware (Total time 25+ minutes - due to another factory reset troubleshooting)
3. Connected it back, tested and made sure I have right names to the zones
4. Renamed zones, tuned to right duration and done
5. Got rid of the WiFi bridge and connected via Ethernet Over Power/Powerline adapter - works

Total time: 70 minutes

New Release Upgrades
Still cant rename Program 1,2,3 to Summer Winter
On Off Button is still confusing unless you read the fine print below as system is on :-)
After these two - I just gave up looking for changes

==========Old Review==========
I have had IC (IrrigationCaddy) System for a little over a month now and thought should do a thorough review for fellow Amazon Citizens to ensure broadcasting everything to enable all to make a right decision to buy or keep looking.

Let's start with few things
Installation and Configuration
- Installation is a breeze, take off all zone wires from old system and transfer it to IC that are clearly labeled. Comes with screws, Ethernet wire and AC adapter. It has holes to install it directly on the wall.
- It gets it's own DHCP address, lets you use your own staic IP/DNS/Gateway etc that I usually choose.

I've been using the Irritrol 12 zone system with a wireless remote which has been rock solid. No complaints but I wanted to get an "app" for my irrigation system and with a bit of research this seems to be a good solution.

(2 stars) First about the unit. The unit itself has only connectors which when compared to Irritol are flimsy. If you want to turn on/off a zone you have to do it with software. The assembly is a bit weak. Flattening out the cable was a bit scary since I though I could crack or break the assembly. This system would get 5 stars if the assemble was stronger.

(4 stars) The Software rocks. This little box is a web server that managed your watering system. Clear concise but I would prefer it if you could label the "Programs" and have more of them. Only 3 Programs is limiting, it's software, give me more!

(1 star) The network set up with a LinkSys running DD WRT v2 is a horror story. I have it connected to the optional IOGear Universal Wireless Bridge and although the IOGear stays connected (BTW, nice product) the Irrigationcaddy drops out after about 20 minutes consistently. I've been playing around with WPA, WPA2, Mixed, Firewalls, and more and I still don't have this working. I'm glad they have a sniffer that allows you to see if the device on on the network but I wish they had more support for trouble shooting. I'd give it 5 stars in the box included wifi and it worked with WPA2.

Over all I give this device 3 stars. I'm happy with it and even purchased a $4 app from the App Store to remotely water zones. The device does 10 zones if you deactivate the "Master Zone".

I only wish this worked better on the network.
