They replaced my malfunction unit quickly with no hassle whatsoever
Just deployed a 3-pack of these throughout our front/back yard lawns and I must admit they've got it down. I did bury a hose to get one of the units into a central location, but now I'm able to water the entire lawn + nearby tree and flower bed. I will say to make sure you have WiFi that is strong and/or access points that can reach outside. Fortunately 2.4Ghz does well with distance, but that may end up being your only issue with things being located outdoors. Oh, also remember to change the default schedule if you have multiple units on one hose. It defaults to 6AM and (if not changed) you would have all of them running simultaneously.
The concept is awesome, the app is very intuitive, and it just plain works! For my odd-shaped yard, it's an ideal solution.
I received and set up my Single Device. When I tried to program the zone the unit would only trickle water and the iPhone app would crash. After a day of frustration I performed some troubleshooting to see if I could determine the cause. It turned out that my water hose was clogged with a chunk of dirt. After removing the clog I was able to easily program the zone and operate the device. I'm very happy with operation so far. It follows the programed zone perfectly. I would purchase again.
I have had this device since Rev 0 and I started with wow and have continued to awesome! Continuous improvements and great support. What more could you want from a product and company. This device is easy to use and will change lawn and garden maintenance for your home.
The best thing I’ve done for my lawn! Easy to set up app, works decently far away from my router. Updates via the app. Truly the future of lawn care. I just bought two more!
Best yard investment ever!
Pretty powerful, excited to see results from molasses mixture. I’ll probably buy more units for other important parts of the yard. I trenched in a hose & some Hue lighting to the main front island. Now if only I can get my outdoor faucet to stop dripping... First Oto placement, I made the mistake of connecting to a tree that forks just where the nozzle would spin. So I laughed as the nozzle rotated splashing everywhere it was blocked by the tree. App is easy to use but I need to get good at it still. I fully charged it with the solar panels to first test & it was full within two days, however I didn’t test it much to see battery drain. As always: I recommend multiple WiFi 6 routers located inside exterior walls if you want signal farther into a larger yard. Excited to test the bug spray mix this summer as well.
Works like magic. I have two units one in the backyard and the other in the front. Great product and service
The unit itself is easy set up. Straightforward and intuitive. Some things to think about are trees and and any other obstructions you have in your yard. This will change the configuration of units. Also, test your water pressure. It's crucial for top performance especially if you have a bigger yard and are trying to get maximum coverage with minimal units.
What a great solution to a constant problem. I will never install another in ground irrigation system. Oto is, seriously, the easiest tech I’ve set up to date. It was actually fun setting up the zones, again, because it was so easy. Having the ability to control this from phone is a bonus for me due to travel, but this thing takes into account the weather and if not mistaken adjusts and plays the wind, if any. That’s smart!
I love this little thing, it made my grass so much healthier and is way more reliable than the programmable/wifi faucet and above ground sprinklers I had been using.
Programming it to my complicated polygon of a lawn took a sec and our water pressure changes between day and night so I had to redo it during the time it would be watering. Also, with my pressure I couldn't get 30 feet unless I mounted it on our Pergola, now it has a dead spot under it so I'm thinking I really need 2 for the backyard.
Wifi connection has been solid and the battery works well, I also like their lawn care solutions.
Keep up the great work OtO!
After months of getting estimates for an inground sprinkler system ranging from $3000-$6000, we decided to go with the Oto system instead. It was super simple to set up and use, and it’s been super reliable. The fact that it can check the weather and save water, especially here in California where there is an ongoing drought, is super important to us. It also warns us when there’s going to be a freeze so that we can protect the system. Overall I would recommend to anyone who is looking for an alternative to the super expensive, traditional sprinklers.
This device works great. I am so happy I bought the OtO
Cool and very nice product!
Oto was the answer to the question: how do I get into fall lawn renovation without ripping up the entire lawn and putting in an expensive upfront cost system without resale value?
Product is a great first run, very usable. Service is great and the folks at Oto truly care both about their customers and the product that they offer.
I had a couple of issues with my order but they were solved at a timely manner.
Have enjoyed using this product, not only to conserve water but have the flexibility to automate different watering needs for my yard. So far I'm seeing cast improvements and recommend using the lawn fertilizer as part of the watering routine. My yard has never looked better!
Well worth the wait. Convenient and super-easy to use. The app was a little confusing at first, but after figuring out where everything is it’s a breeze. I haven’t had any problems at all with my OtO (I purchased the double-pack), and enjoy knowing my yard is being watered with very minimal effort on my part. I do wish that it were able to extend further than 30 feet, but I have devised a plan of attack that covers my entire yard. I highly recommend the OtO system to anyone who doesn’t have time to constantly move a sprinkler around or the money to install an entire yard watering system.
Not gonna lie - the front and back yard OtO’s have been life changing! The ease of applying water through zone creation and scheduling is the best. I can’t recommend OtO enough!
It was a bit fiddly setting up the zones, but after a bit of trial and error you can really perfect this. Ideally this will be improved overtime to something more like setting up motion zones on a ring doorbell. But I wouldn’t let this get in the way of purchasing!
My new Oto lawn care are great. They only what what I need and nothing else. I can see a dramatic difference between now and then. Thank you Oto.
