ESP-9V Battery-Operated Controller

Make more money installing these durable, easy-to-use, long-lasting controllers.

With a list price more than 25% below the Hunter Node, ESP-9V provides a more cost-effective option for controlling areas without AC power. Additionally, ESP-9V controllers are tougher, easier to use and longer-lasting. With ESP-9V, you get a dual-sealed battery chamber, common programming on an 85% larger LCD display and a 2-year life using two batteries—all at a much lower price.
