Hozelock Watering Sensor Controller is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very easy setup Very easy to setup and it was up and running in 10mins. Simple to use and comes with a 2 year guarantee. Press and hold the water now button to check battery level.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Water timer This is the second one I have bought. Simple to operate and seem reasonably robust. Down side is they can be touchy to start with. Certainly removing the silver label helps. The two contacts might be a bit edgy. (I know about the initial 6 hour dely.) But once it starts working its very reliable. I would buy again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great timer and no setting up A new Hoselock water timer was required as the old one had broken after continuous work for 16 years ,so the new one has a challenge to step up to. Once this was fitted to the tap you have to allow a day before the light sensor kicks in. Also not shown on the instructions that is quite apparent is not to put your timer near a back porch which has a strong light which will confuse the light sensor and might come on and off too many times. Amazingly there is no setting up to do at all with this timer just set the duration using the dial how long you wish it on for, either night or day or both, then it comes on and off at dawn or dusk . A setting for 15mins would have been good between the 10 and 20 as one i use most in the past. It also takes two smaller batts AA rather than the old D type. It was very reliable right through the most of season. The only disadvantage were the batteries do not last the season as one would expect (and did with the old timer) ,also there was no warning with an indicator when the battery's were about to finish either ..so this could easily have happened when I was on holiday But fortunately it didn’t on this occasion . The battery life is something Hozelock to consider ... but very impressed with the rest of the timer and recommended for simplicity ​

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Simple! Designed for those who just want a simple to use watering timer. In fact with all the sunshine we are getting at the moment it's ideal as it only comes on at dawn and dusk and all you have to do is choose either dawn or dusk watering or both for periods up to an hour. There is a manual override as well. 2x AA batteries is all it needs. Excellent....let's hope it lasts!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Watering controller Simple and easy to use - not too many decisions to make - only waters everyday either in the morning or Evening or both. Next model up allows you to control which days so go for that if you need more control

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Water Sensor control Bought this because going away for a couple of days and did not want vegetable plants to die. Have just come back and worked extremely well. Remember when you first put the batteries in the sensor is locked for six hours.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to use A very easy to use watering timer. This has only a few programming options. Once in the morning, once in the evening or both and just a dial to contend with. If you want a more intricate timing schedule then I would chiose another model.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Incorrect description The highlights of this product state ‘Every day to once a week option’ - this is incorrect.
