Through the SMRT Scape™ app or website, users are able to remotely control and manage their irrigation system, outdoor lighting, or other key features of their landscape from wherever they may be. SMRT Logic communicates to the EVOLUTION through a Smart Connect™ transceiver that uses a secure 900 MHz radio signal to communicate to the controller.

Wireless Connectivity
When paired with a Smart Connect receiver (sold separately), the EVOLUTION Series controller is able to communicate wirelessly to a series of powerful and water saving accessories, including the ET-based Weather Sensor, Precision™ Soil Sensor, Auxiliary Relay, Handheld Remote, or SMRT Logic. SMRT Logic is a unique internet gateway that allows cloud-based control of your landscape through the SMRT Scape™ website or app.
