A good unit, software could use a little tweaking. Bluetooth performance is good.
Been using the BTX8 for a over a year now on our small rural property with a large 3 phase submersible bore.
It's been a good unit, and handy as I don't have to go into my shed now to program or use the controller, just leave it in the "run and connect" mode. I can stand within about 5 metres of the (steel) shed and use it. Lets me see straight away if a station is not working or a pipe has burst.
The bluetooth works well, a lot more convenient than some others that make their own wireless network.
Just one suggestion, there's no way to manuall...
Preety good, needs to be able to pair to other phones with permission
Pretty good, easy to program, need to be able to pair with more than one phone though.
App Software can be confusing, but easy to understand once you have worked with it for a while
Overall reasonable value for money
Would be great to have a contractor logon and wifi ideally
Needs a contractor function.
The controller would be so much better we as landscape contractors could set the unit up for the client without needing them to be on site to use their phone.
Also we need it on our phone to test the system as the bluetooth works great for adjusting sprinklers.
Good idea just not aimed at landscapers

Questions & Answers
Good afternoon. How far am I able to run the cables from solenoid to wall controller. Is their a distance calc that i should use. For example over 50m, 1mm as a minimum?
Hi, the devices was previously connected by bluetooth but when I went to use it today it failed to connect. I have gone through troubleshooting of unpairing and trying to re-pair but no joy. Have also tried deleting the device from the app with the view to reconnect that way as new device but the device wasn't found. All that is occurring is the blue lights keep going around in circles along each valve indicator continually. I've checked that my phone's bluetooth is working with other devices and it is. Any advice?
Hi have BTX8. Was paired correctly but went to use it today and no connection. Have done troubleshooting guide and unpaired and tried to reconnect but nothing. Deleted the device with the thought to reconnect but no change. All it shows the whole time is the blue lights for each of the valves continually going around in circles. Any advice?
turn it off and reset it, delete it from your phone, re-setup. I have had the same issue, this model is a has a few bugs, they have a new wifi version which has most of those issues ironed out.
