Sentinel® Central Control System Version 2


This powerful, yet simple-to-use Central Control System is ideal for large sites such as councils, parks and sports fields as it allows a user to control up to 999 field satellites from a remote location with a desktop or laptop computer.

The Sentinel® Central Control System offers the ability to control up to 999 field satellites at multiple sites from one location.


Sentinel is easy to use and its Microsoft Windows-based software ensures daily operations and scheduling is quick and easy. Sentinel provides the irrigator with the ability to optimize programmed irrigation between different irrigation sites.

Sentinel can incorporate flow sensors, tipping rain cans, wind sensors, freeze sensors and full weather-stations. These sensors and instruments monitor site and climatic conditions and report to the central computer.

Sentinel satellites react automatically to readings outside of pre-defined limits set by the system operator. As an additional source of savings, pipeline breaks, malfunctioning valves, and missing heads are automatically detected and shut down, preventing excessive water loss.

Sentinel offers evapo-transpiration (ET) based watering which can lead to water savings of 25% to 30% per year.

Every Sentinel system purchased comes with two years of 24 hour, seven days a week Toro NSN telephone support.
