Smart Controller Program

The Smart Controller Program enables homeowners to register their smart controllers with the city. The registration program includes programming assistance, an irrigation check-up, and a smart controller home yard sign.

A smart irrigation controller is a sprinkler system clock that adjusts watering run times by using weather data. Smart controllers can reduce outdoor water use by nearly 30%.

Program Information

Once you register your smart controller with Frisco, your system can irrigate with some flexibility to the city's watering restrictions.

Registered and properly functioning smart controllers may irrigate without watering day restrictions, but not more than once every seven days (unless Frisco's weather station recommends twice per week watering). Watering is not permitted between 10:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. during Daylight Saving Time. Your controller can be set to operate around these settings. If you aren't certain how to check, ask your irrigation professional or we can help you at the time of registration during the programming assistance portion.

Customers with a registered smart controller are designated with a yard sign. To ensure water efficiency each year, an annual irrigation check-up is required of smart controller customers who wish to continue to use their designated yard sign.

Retro-fit with a smart controller?

Homes built prior to 2007 are eligible to apply for a one-time $100 rebate incentive, applied to the water bill, after registering the controller with the City's Smart Controller Program. If you plan to install a smart controller, select a controller from the City of Frisco's qualified smart controllers list.

To apply, send your proof of purchase with the Retro-Fit Home Application. The Retro-fit Home Application and receipt must be received within six months of purchase. Smart controllers which require a weather-based signal must also provide proof of subscription.

Already have a smart controller?

As of July 2007, new residential sprinkler system installations in Frisco are required to include smart irrigation controller technology and may also register their smart controller with the city's program. Homes built after July 2007 are eligible to register their smart controller with the City's program, however they are not eligible for the rebate.

To apply, send in the completed New Home Application. Smart controllers which require a weather-based signal must also provide proof of subscription.
