Tired of driving out to turn the pump on and off to change the water, un-hook ends, make repairs, and fix bad plugs?
Worried about broken pipes causing floods, power loss in the middle of the night, or pipes that have come apart?

We were - so I constructed an RF ( Radio Freq ) remote control to turn on and off our irrigation pumps as well as monitor and notify us of any issues. The setup connects to most standard 3-Phase 480VAC pump panels. The purchase doesn't include the transducers required to monitor pressure and ditch water level; those can be purchased directly from the suppliers and easily wired to the Controller.

Features of this item
* A solid rural 2-Mile range ( XBee RF claims up-to 28-mile range )
* No cellular, FCC licensing or other requirements are needed
* A single Hand-Remote can control multiple irrigation pumps
* Multiple Hand-Remotes can control the same irrigation pump
* Uses the Pump Panels "AUTO" selection; doesn't disturb manual operation
* Implements the "Stay-Off" after power loss; req. by power companies
* Easily [expandable] to offer Pressure and Water-Level monitoring
* Built using mass-produced dev-boards that can be easily purchased
