- Verified purchase
Only supports limited smartphones/tablets
After the abomination that was the Holman Dial EZY Controller (also on product reviews) I decided I would purchase this bluetooth model so I could clean/test sprinklers without having to go back and forward to the control box all the time.
The station controller doesn't support many smart devices (they have list in their online manual) and it says it supports the Samsung S5 which I have, but I have a Korean Samsung S5 which has the Korean samsung firmware on it and it not supported.
My friend has an Australian Samsung S6 and it pairs no p...roblems. I contacted support in Osborne Park explaining that there are many variants of each model phone as each country gets altered version of Android OS which is customized for the Telcos in the country and I guess local laws. All I got back was "we have a samsung S5 and it works with ours" and on that note I chucked it back in the box and took it back to bunnings for a full refund. I don't know what app developer they used to get their app developed but they might want to look elsewhere as this is the first app I have ever had to use that was so specific about what phone or tablet it is compatible with (obviously excluding older android operating systems).

Hi Brad, give Holman a call, they will look after you. I had the same issue with mine and they replaced it without question.
