Water Management Features
Optional Flow Smart Module™ adds flow sensing functionality:
- The Flow Smart Module sensor input accepts a direct input from a flow sensor with no flow scaling device required.
- The FloWatch Learn Flow Utility learns the normal flow rate of each station. FloWatch compares the current real-time flow rate to the learned rate and takes user defined actions if high flow, low flow, or no flow is detected. FloWatch automatically determines the location of the flow problem and isolate the problem by turning off the affected station or master valve. FloWatch is compatible with both normally closed and open master valves.
- A Manual Master Valve Water Windows is provided to coordinate day time manual watering with the flow sensing. This Water Windows offers programmable days of the week and manual watering additional.

The ESP-LXME controller has a base station capacity of 8 or 12 stations as well as 3 expansion slots capable of receiving station modules of 4, 8, or 12 stations to create a controller capacity of up to 48 stations. The SM Station Modules are hot-swappable so there is no need to turn off the power to add or remove modules. Dynamic station numbering eliminates station numbering gaps.
