By connecting your irrigation controller directly to your LAN, you can enjoy seamless real-time communication without relying on external networks. This option is perfect for maximizing efficiency in locations with existing network infrastructure in place. Ethernet communication’s cost-effectiveness and reliability make it an excellent choice for those seeking to minimize data costs and optimize system performance.

Ideal for locations with reliable Wi-Fi coverage, this option allows you to effortlessly manage your irrigation system using familiar network infrastructure. The Wi-Fi option offers flexibility, supporting both hardwire and wireless connections, providing users with versatile communication capabilities. This option offers flexibility and convenience making it a popular choice among customers seeking efficient irrigation management solutions.

Adapting to Change

While the Local Radio (LR) communication option has been discontinued, rest assured that existing LR systems can still be serviced by Calsense. However, in light of advancements in communication technology, we also offer compelling opportunities for upgrading to more efficient and versatile communication options.

For those currently utilizing LR communication, now is an opportune time to explore the benefits of upgrading to cellular, Ethernet, or Wi-Fi options. Not only do these modern alternatives offer enhanced reliability and functionality, but we also provide discounted rates for transitioning from LR to newer communication technologies.

To learn more about the upgrade process and take advantage of these discounted rates, we encourage you to reach out to your local Calsense sales representative.
