  1. Is it possible to rename devices? Currently i only have one WX1 so it doesn’t matter but once I have more than one device how do I know which is which? I expect to end up with two Wi-Fi hubs each with its own one or more WX1 or WX2

    1. Hi David, you can rename your Wifi Tap Timers in the Holman Home app. While on the home screen devices list, tap the WX1 Tap Timer you would like to rename—this will display the device’s controls and settings. Next, tap the pencil icon in the top right corner for additional device information. From there, tap the pencil icon next to the current WX1 Tap Timer name to edit the device’s icon and name.

      If you need additional support, please email, and our customer service team will be able to help troubleshoot any issues. Thank you!

  2. How can I change the wifi network on my 6 devices? I currently have 2 wifi networks running concurrently but want to change my Holman products to the new network.

    1. To change the network For any Holman Home product, you need to disconnect and reconnect the devices:

      Tap the pencil (or cog, depending on the device) icon in the top right corner of the Holman Home app. At the bottom of this screen choose ‘Remove Device’ and tap ‘Disconnect’.
      If you accidentally press ‘Disconnect and wipe data’ then your device will factory reset and lose all settings.

      For lighting and irrigation controllers, simply disconnect and then re-add them using the new network.

      Ideal steps to disconnect a WX tap timer from your current network:
      – Remove Tap Timer/s
      – Remove the Socket
      – Remove the Hub

      To reconnect to your desired network, add tap timer devices in the reverse order as they were disconnected.

      If you run into any issues while changing over to the new network, please reach out to our customer service team at They will be more than happy to assist with troubleshooting. Thank you!

  3. Can you run 2 x wifi hubs, each connected to 4x WX1 tap timers? I’ve got 2x hubs and 8x timers and seem to getting conflicts with timers going offline or controlling incorrect timers.

  4. hi just change phone and can remember my account details to log back in. please help me reset the app. thanks Graham

    1. Hi Graham,

      When logging in, your account will be the email address that was used to create the Holman Home account. If you don’t remember your password, you can click “Forgot Password” at the bottom of the screen and a verification code will be sent to your email address. Enter the verification code on the app to create a new password and access to your original account.

      You can also choose “Sign Up” instead of “Log In” to create a new account with a different email. A new account requires you to reset and then reconnect all devices, as well as reprogram your schedules and alerts.

      While they can’t help with your account getting reset, if you require assistance with reconnecting your devices, contact our customer service team at
      They can help to troubleshoot connection issues with you.
      Thank you!

  5. Can the wx8 controller be used as the hub for the wx1?
    I bought 2 extra wx1 for my mother in laws place but did not use them. I’d like to use them at my place but since she has the hub and I have (or will have soon) the wx8 I was wondering if I could just use that.

  6. I am struggling to set the different stations to start automatically at separate times, (example- Station 1 turn on @6:40 for 10 mins then station 2 start at 6:50 for 10 mins then station 3 to start at 7:00 for 10 mins).
    Every time I set the first station it works after saving then when setting station 2 & 3 the first 2 will cancel out and only the time set for the 3rd will work… Its like the save is not actually saving.

    1. Hi Brad, we are sorry you are having trouble with your controller. If you can get in touch with our customer service team and include your product code, they will be able to help you along with the start time process. They will also be able to determine if your controller is working correctly or not. Please contact them here:

  7. Hi I’m struggling to link my sparkliest to my google home. I follow all the steps to link Holman home to google but then say it’s linked but nothing changes can’t find the sprinkler

    1. Hi Jack, if you can get in touch with our customer service team and include your product code, they will be able to help you along with the linking steps. Otherwise, we have a self-help article available on how to link all of our Holman Home products to Google Home. You can read the article here: or get in touch with customer service here:

  8. Hi, can I control my Wi-Fi Garden Light Controller with Homekit or a smart switch (installed in the wall like a normal household light switch)?

    1. Hi Jimmy,

      Thanks for your questions. Unfortunately, our Wi-Fi Garden Light Controllers are not compatible with Apple Homekit. When using our controller, we suggest that you connect it to a power source that is not interrupted. If you use a smart switch to turn the controller off and on, you may experience some connection issues between the controller and the Holman Home app. There is a wide range of scheduling options already available on Holman Home that will allow you to turn your lights on and off as needed. Please let us know if you have any other questions, Dayna.

    1. Hi Charles, you can use Siri to control some aspects of the WX1 Tap Timer, however, you will still need to go into the app to set up smart automations.
