Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Easy install, only works if rains very hard Purchased original in 2006. Did not want to run a wired sensor. System was easy to install. Had to replace transmitter this year after original quit working--lasted about 7 yrs. biggest complaint was sensor seldom turned sprinkler off unless it downpoured, even if set on most sensitive setting. Other complaint is you can't just get a new transmitter, have to buy whole new system. That said, the product is made well and if you take care of the transmitter it will last. Recommend removing the transmitter and store inside during winter. I left the little set screw off the mount so the transmitter can be easily removed without removing the mount from the house.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product. Rain sensor was very easy to install even on a Hunter irrigation timer. September 16, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by it works as planned very simple to install, very tricky to get adjusted correctly, but once adjusted works fine August 19, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by No more sprinklers in the rain. The rain sensor was a replacement for another wireless rain sensor of the same brand that lasted over ten years. Simple replacement for anyone to do in only a few minutes. Quick delivery to the store and hassle free pick up. June 10, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Good, but dries out too fast. Very easy to install. Seemed to work fine except it dries out too fast. I had it set for the 1/2" setting with the vent completely closed and it was dry 24 hours after 3 inches of rain. June 7, 2014
