How do I set up my WX8 Irrigation Controller for daylight saving time?

The WX8 internal clock does not adjust to daylight saving time automatically.

To ensure the WX8 waters Starts A, B & C at the correct time, simply open the WX8 user interface on the Holman Home app and it will synchronise the current phone time to the WX8.

Synchronising the current phone time to the WX8 is done to ensure the WX8 will have the correct time even if its connection to the internet is down — it will run the scheduled Starts with no issue. It protects your watering times and your garden.

If your location uses daylight saving time then your irrigation controller may water one hour before or one hour after the time you have set the Starts to run.

Note: Daylight saving time in Australia begins the first Sunday in October and ends on the first Sunday in April.

This is hands down the best watering investment I have made.
Don't usually leave reviews but saw the low reviews here and felt that it was only fair to jump on and leave a more positive review.
I got the unit with the rain detector which has worked very well for me.
I often jump on to start watering on hot days from work, and walking around the yard activating zones while clearing blockages on sprinklers and drippers each spring beats walking back and forward to the controller.
The only thing I would like is a log of activations to appear in the app, so I can check when a zone was last watered if I feel it's looking a little dry (I have one zone under my pergola which the rain sensor obviously won't work for). I pretty sure I could setup a behaviour on this zone to ignore the rain sensor but haven't got there yet.

All in all a fantastic product, well worth the purchase price and much better than doing everything at the controller.

Holman WX8 Poor Tech Support

I bought this from Bunnings las year and it was easy to set up however after a year tlit stop working. It doesn't want to connect to internet anymore and is asking that I need a 2G network for it. So frustrating that I paid for something that only lasted one year. DO NOT BUY this product....!

Hi Milton, sorry the WX8 has not been working! If you could please contact our customer service at support@holmanindustries.com.au, they will be able to help troubleshoot this problem with you. Thank you, Holman Team

Programming Limitations Hold It Back

I already bought four Holman tap timers and added the WX8 to manage the water needs more centrally and flexibly. Unfortunately we found that the WX8 is actually more limited that the tap timers for programming and still having only 3 patterns to manage up to 8 stations makes little sense.

I believe many users investing in a station like this (plus all of the individual valves) will want to rotate watering or have multiple waterings per day. Especially if water pressure may be an issue. The WX8 should have this too but the software limits watering to only 3 programs that must be shared by all 8 stations.

Also, watering is limited to only 4 hours - the tap timers at least gave us 12. And only once per 24 hours. So, not morning and afternoon cycles without using another of the 3 programs.

Extending watering times and having several sequences under one of the 3 programs should be possible with a software update. However, Holman really needs to increase the programming flexibility to more than the 3 patterns (time and day of activation) in a high end unit like this.

Hoping for a software update and a more capable central unit.

This product has been very reliable unit and hasn't had any issues. Absolutely faultless as I have about 100 plants and two lawn areas to irrigate daily. Glad I purchased this.
