Watercorp Weather Based Irrigation Controller Rebate Scheme 2023

Perth and Peel region customers can claim a rebate of up to $300 towards a new weather based irrigation controller. Part of this rebate includes the set up by an endorsed Waterwise Garden Irrigator. If you're eligible, Watercorp will credit the rebate to your Water Corporation account. 

Weather Based Smart Irrigation Controllers

Our water supply is a precious commodity, and we as Waterwise Irrigators have water saving at the forefront of our minds whenever we install or service a garden irrigation system.


Watercorp currently have a great scheme in place allowing Perth and Peel customers to access up to $300 off the price of a new WIFI enabled weather-based retic controller. The scheme has now commenced for both scheme and bore users, and ends on the 31st of May 2024, or when all of the allocations have been used up. 


These controllers connect to your WIFI network, and will take weather related information from an online source, and adjust your watering patterns accordingly. By having access to information such as forecasted rain, high humidity, and extreme temperatures, the controller can adjust itself to ensure you are only using exactly what your garden needs to survive.


The other benefit to these controllers is that they can be controlled using an APP on your phone or tablet, giving you access to your reticulation controller from anywhere in the world, at anytime. You can receive notifications on certain faults, and have the peace of mind your system is functioning from wherever you are in the world.

Recommended Controllers


Hunter Hydrawise X2 with WAND Wifi Module

Our pick of the bunch!!! With X2, you can keep the familiar dial-based programming style offered by X-Core. If you upgrade X2 with WAND, programming is familiar, fast, and easy thanks to a helpful setup wizard using a smartphone or desktop device. Hydrawise maximizes water savings by automatically adjusting irrigation schedules based on local weather measurements sourced from the internet.

Our opinion: The X2 is a strong sturdy unit and well priced - this is our number one 'go to' at the moment.

From $540+GST, supplied and installed (4ST)

Hunter Pro-C 

The HPC combines the power of the Hydrawise Wi-Fi-based irrigation management software and the convenience of Hunter PRO-C modular functionality into one next-generation controller. 

Among the controller’s many robust features is Predictive Watering™, which adjusts irrigation schedules based on local, real-time temperature, rainfall probability, wind, and humidity. Users can also manage the controller from anywhere using a smartphone, tablet, or computer. The HPC is EPA WaterSense approved. Hydrawise is also compatible with Amazon Alexa for convenient voice control to start, stop, and suspend irrigation.

Our opinion: Excellent mid-level controller and becomes a competitive option on systems with 8 stations or more due to its modular system.

Hunter Hydrawise PRO-HC

The PRO-HC controllers have a full graphical touchscreen interface making programming without Wi-Fi connectivity simple, and even easier from the app.  The PRO-HC comes  fully WIFI enabled and the Hydrawise app is free to download. 

Our opinion: This is a well built and robust controller suitable for indoor or outdoor use. The PRO-HC is a highly versatile and powerful option and can be paired with flow meters to identify unusual water usage, indicating leaks or possible broken sprinklers.

Orbit B-Hyve

B-hyve® Smart Indoor/Outdoor Irrigation Controller for underground sprinkler systems lets you control your watering system in two ways. A waterproof, wall-mounted swing panel control that can be placed either indoors or outdoors and an easy-to-use smartphone app that you can access anywhere. Program watering zones, set schedules, and receive updates from the B-hyve® smart sprinkler controller that is both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth enabled.

Our opinion: This is a very competitive offering from Orbit. It's a budget controller with most of the features and functionality a home user would need. Good budget option, but lacking slightly on build quality and functionality compared to the X2. Limited powering options a big issue in our opinion. 

NOTE: This controller cannot be hardwired, or run from a 24V Supply. A local GPO is required to run one of these.
