Customer Questions & Answers

Does it work in outdoor?

Does it work in outdoor?
Asked by: Romx
I believe that Rain Bird has two models of this unit - one for indoor use, and one for outdoor use. As far as I can tell, the only difference is that the outdoor model has a door that covers the front of the unit, which probably just keeps it from the weather elements.

Does it has battery backup function?

Does it has battery backup function?
Asked by: Paul
The unit has 2 AA batteries installed in it. I assume they are for maintaining the unit's settings (time, date, and your irrigation program) if the electricity fails. I doubt the small batteries would power the solenoid valves to actually run your irrigation program when there isn't any electricity during that time.

I am upgrading from a older Rain Bird controller about 14 years old. It is inside the garage and I can plug in a wi-fi extender to provide good signal but do I need any additional items for installation?

Is this unit compatible with hunter solenoid valves?

Is this unit compatible with hunter solenoid valves?
Asked by: Paco
I would assume so, as a solenoid valve operates when a small electrical charge is sent through the wires connected to them. There isn't any data sent to the solenoid valve - just an electrical signal. Brand shouldn't matter.

8-Zone Smart Irrigation Wi-Fi Timer is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 35.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to Program, Multiple Station Settings The Rain Bird 8-station timer was easy to install and program. One feature I really liked was that each station can be programmed to come on up to four times a day. You can set each day different or the entire week the same. The seasonal function was fairly straight forward as well. The location for this timer was far enough away from my wireless Wi-Fi hub that the signal was too weak to properly try out this function. However, it too appears to be easy to use and iy would be nice to monitor my sprinkler system remotely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rain Bird still makes the best I've had my old sprinkler controller for 16 years and never had a problem with it. And it was a Rain Bird. Now that they have a WiFi model I was very excited to get it. I have an Android smart phone and downloaded their free app from Google Play and had it up and running quickly. I like the four Watering options. 1) Calendar days or intervals (for example, Monday, Wednesday and Friday) on which watering is allowed. 2) Custom Days -To schedule watering to occur on selected days of the week, 3) Odd Days -To schedule watering to occur on all odd calendar days (1,3,5...29 etc.), 4) Cyclic Days - To schedule watering to occur at intervals (every 2 days, or 3 days, etc.), There are 8 zones and each one can have its own duration or copied from another zone. I like to have my zones to run in order, but all can be turned on at the same time. I like to be able to use the app and turn each zone on in sequence as I walk around my property and watch and make sure all of the sprinklers are working correct.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this product. This product lets you control your lawn irrigation system from your smart phone or tablet. It monitors weather conditions and alerts you if power has been interrupted or if your irrigation solenoids are defective. Changing watering schedules or watering manually is so easy, a caveman could do it. No more worries about watering schedules being lost or compromised by power outages. Time of day and day of week are controlled by the internet connection and you can monitor or adjust this device from anyplace with an internet connection via an app on your desktop. If you own an irrigation system, you need to buy this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saves time when setting up lawn and garden I my small front yard lawn controlled with 2 zones, my bigger back yard controlled with 4 zones, and my garden drip system covered with 2 zones on the side of the house. Having this controller made all the difference because I was able to install and verify everything with the app on my phone, rather than run back and forth to the garage a million times shutting stations on and off. Even after I got things going, I wanted to fine-tune my watering settings, and troubleshoot a few garden drips, and this irrigation system allows you to do that. It was saved so much time, and it's so easy to understand and use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I finally had to replace my 150 year old Hydro-Saver 7 mechanical timer. Well, it's not actually ... I finally had to replace my 150 year old Hydro-Saver 7 mechanical timer. Well, it's not actually 150 years old, but it was already antiquated when I bought my house 21 years ago. The Rain Bird was pretty much a swap. Apparently things haven't changed in the last 150 years as the wiring was exactly the same. Installation was straightforward -- just remember which color wires are for which zones. Take a picture of the old wiring first! After installation I had it networked in no time (I have both 2.4 and 5GHz networks running and the 5GHz signal does NOT interfere, as one reviewer said). The app made it simple to program and it works perfectly. I have finally joined the 21st Century.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not bad at all... This is my third smart wi fi timer as i have several properties. This one is installed at one of them so i can control it from my actual residence. Timer was easy to set up and program out of the box.Now that i can adjust it and water that lawn over there remotely is a huge plus! App is available for both Iphone and Android. Easy as pie app. I like how it can monitor weather conditions and alerts. All in all, this is an awesome timer with just the rite amount of stations to fit my needs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love this timer! This timer has made my life so much easier and not having to make several trips out to our garage to adjust watering schedules due to weather inconsistency. I am having problems editing but I'm sure that is due to my lack of knowledge of the timer. I would recommend this timer for anybody that spends a lot of time adjusting their watering schedule
