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 38.
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.

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 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

For years, I lived with an old rainbird manual system that required the setting of the days, spin the dials, set the time, spin the dials, set the zones , spin the dials , intermingled with tap....tap...tap....,tap..... repeat as often as needed for each zone until my fingers fell from the dials. I labeled att of my incoming feeds by existing zones, disconnected the wires one at a time and placed them on the new wireless controller and within 45 minutes I had disconnect, reconnected, downloaded the rainbird app for my phone, programmed in the new settings I wanted for the system to follow and I was finished. Few things could be easier. Now I can walk out in the yard and with my phone in my hand turn the water on, check the sprays to see how they are functioning, turn the water off, make adjustments, turn the water back on, and see the results of my handiwork instantly. There is no more running up and down the hill, up and down the steps, checking which zone I am working on, etc, etc.. This process is a lifesaver and you aren't going to believe how easy it will have made your life. You are going to wonder why you didn't have one of these years ago. Believe me when I tell you this is one of the best $139 investments you will ever make. Can they improve it? Yes. It would be great if the software would tell you that the system has received your commands and updated itself. I would like to see a two way communication that says - "Dropped Tuesday from the watering schedule in zone 2" ands allow you to confirm. But believe me when I tell you these are wish list - not mandatory. Trust me when I tell you that you are going to love it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't buy this The main reason to buy a wifi controller is to control a device from your celllphone anywhere in the world. This device cannot do this. This device can only be controlled when you are at home in your wifi zone. It cannot connect when away from home on a cell phone. The rainbird website says it can be controlled from "anywhere in the world" but I called customer service twice and both times I was told it was not designed to work this way. When I challenged them, they actually got angry and told me I wasn't listening to them. I don't understand the good reviews that state it works as advertised. Now I'm angry because of all the wasted time installing and uninstalling and returning this thing. DON'T BUY

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better Than Expected I bought this controller at a reasonable price, had it installed at a reasonable price and now I've been able to start the water when it's been an exceptionally hot day or stop the cycle from afar when unexpected rain waters my lawn. I chose this one because I wanted to stay with the Rainbird brand. My sprinkler system is Rainbird,!and I haven't had any problems out of it. The old manual panel was stil in mint condition. I figured I couldn't go wrong sticking with Rainbird.

Easy to program, adjusts times automatically based on local weather conditions, and can be controlled remotely. My only complaint is that it occasionally drops the network connection, and I have to reprogram everything again.
