Wifi Water Control Timer

Question From: J. Eckblom - Quincy, Massachusetts, United States
Q: Is there any devise to hook up to an outside faucet and watering hose to turn on from a smartphone App? I have four houses, NO in-ground watering system, and I would like to be able to water those lawns when I am not around that particular house. I don't mind leaving a conventional hose and sprinkler set up on the lawn while I am away. I understand EACH outside spigot would need its own devise ... and I want to control them myself by an App on my cell phone.

A: That's far beyond my expertise. Probably an upscale landscape architect would have some information and you can find solutions online, including at Amazon, but the products and reviews seem to vary quite a bit. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
