Thanks for the info, the only thing is when I search Hunter WRC it gives me the wireless rain-clik. Does this system also handle the controller scheduling or is it only a rain sensor?

Hunters WRC will do nicly. Has a nice interface and is customer / user friendly. The only downside is, you can only use it on Hunter valves (SRV,HPV,PGV AND ETC). Now, with the Nelson, you can purchase adapters to mount or use on any valves (RAIN-BIRD, HUNTER, IRRITROL / TORO, WEATHER-MATIC).

My main considerations for in the crawl space are cold (I live in Alaska) and access. One of my former careers (when I was a lot younger) was maintenance man at a mobile home park that had a large sprinkler system around the clubhouse. Now I'm a rather big guy (6'6 & 350) and climbing down on hands and knees to get in a small box with barely enough room to manuever does'nt really appeal to me nowadays. I do have sewer access close to where I planned to install the valves so I can set up a drain system for it so it shouldn't cause a problem for the crawl space (and by the way my crawl space is huge, I mean huge). So which models of Hunter's would work. I am really having trouble with getting the info from sprinkler warehouse's site on their products. Any help would really be appreciated.

Nelson & Hunter both make a wireless controller. Both are reliable and easy to use, but, they are expensive. Boots brings up a good question, why would you put them in the crawl space?

Why install zone valves in a crawl space? Not a great idea.

Wireless Controllers

I am installing a new system with the valves in the crawl space of my house. I was wondering if there is a wireless sprinkler controller, that is reliable, that I can place in my garage and control the operation of the sprinklers with, without going down into my crawl space everytime I want to adjust my watering periods. Thanks for your help
