Thanks for the quick reply Ray!

Got my open sprinkler today- excited to start using it.

In regards to your answer, I certainly don’t mind using a router, the only concern is it uses power off the battery also and I don’t want to get to a point where my solar panel can’t keep up. Is it really necessary? What will happen if I don’t? Note, I will be checking in with the timer probably once a week.

Also, I didn’t see on the specifications what the peak power is? I’m wondering what size fuse to use to protect it and the wiring. (I’m using a 12 volt battery).
