This item is really terrible I am going to return it very soon. The two units would not connect to each other. The instructions were even worse they labeled the pieces differently on the unit from the instructions.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Presale Chinese junk
I've been through five units which all stopped working after less than 30 days (will not communicate from any distance). Even test button doesn't work after failure.
Called Orbit support 3 times and waited more than 30 minutes on two occasions. Got frustrated and hung up the third time after 28 minutes.
Horrible support, and unreliable products.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JetRocket Bad Wireless Range
Wireless range is horrible. Transmission test worked fine from a few feet away but at about 15 feet it would not communicate anymore and I could still see the control panel. The whole point of this product is wireless communication and if that part doesn't work then this product becomes useless. The wiring part was very simple so that's one positive.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Zucktucker 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.

Rain sensor was very easy to install even on a Hunter irrigation timer.

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.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by LandscapingGuy 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.
