Variable Control Valve

I am in the process of landscaping and will be putting in all new sprinklers. When I remodeled last year I had 3 new 3/4" copper lines put in from the meter: 1 for the house and two for sprinklers (North and South). Each line has its own pressure regulator.

My plan is to add an X10 controller so I can control the sprinklers from anywhere. What I need to know is this: Is there a controller/valve combination which allows me to control the water pressure?

In at least two zones, I would like to run the sprinklers on low pressure at times and at full pressure at other times.

I searched but could not find an answer. Thanks in advance.

When I or one of his other neighbors calls the cops, they show up an hour later and just tell them all to go back inside.

I want to be able to push a button that drenches them with water... a deluge of Biblical proportions. [:D]
