WiFi Signal Strength and Obstacles

Obstacles between the controller and the WiFi router or booster can significantly degrade WiFi signals, especially when installed outside the home.

Things a WiFi signal will not pass through may include:

  • Cinderblock
  • Sheet metal
  • Cars
  • Brick
  • Large amounts of water (fish tanks)

In these cases, it is recommended to use a WiFi booster between the WiFi router and the irrigation controller or moving the WiFi router closer.
