They can adjust for the season and adjust for current conditions all automatically. When have you seen lawn sprinklers watering in the rain, high wind or freezing temperatures? It’s unlikely that they have a modern timer because the timer will override watering in those conditions. Almost all timers can be replaced with a little labor (usually less than an hour).
