Answer: 
Controllers operate the valve - and the valve in turn operates the sprinkler heads. So, you should be checking to see if this controller is compatible with your valves
From http://wikipage.rainmachine.com/index.php?title=FAQ#Will_RainMachine_work_with_my_existing_sprinkler_timer.3F " Please be sure your valves are rated 24VAC, 600 mA or less."

12 Zone Smart Wi-Fi Sprinkler Controller is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great Only problem is it relies solely on forecasts, which won't work in Florida in the summer. Hoping they get the algorithm to take into account actual rain fall. The unit itself works great. The browser interface is excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 12 Zone Smart Wi-Fi Sprinkler Controller This 12 Zone Smart Wi-Fi Sprinkler Controller is awesome. You never have to worry about the sprinklers running when its raining. The system automatically knows if its raining because it's connect to the latest weather data. What's also cool is if your working on a sprinkler head you don't have to run back inside to turn on, you can do it right from your cell phone. Totally recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Satified The Rainmaker was the clear choice for me because of the local programming interface in case the Internet goes out. Fast and easy install. Besides its ability to adapt the duration to current weather conditions, it retains its programming even after power outages. No backup batteries required. Phone app is great and is improved with each revision.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great controller It was very easy to install and program. I like being able to set the days and times when I can water. Being able to control and test my sprinklers from my phone while in the yard is a great tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from wary smart sprinkler system While I've only had the RainMachine installed for 5 days, I did check to see if it actually varied the watering times based on it's daily calculated watering percentage ( you set the watering time for each zone at what would you like to be on a typical summer day and the controller varies it down based on the forecasted hi & low temps from NOAA as well as projected rain. It will also increase watering if the forecasted temps are significantly higher than the average summer temps for your location ). It does vary the watering times based on the daily weather forecast exactly as advertised. The Android apps run a little slow and could use some tweaking & upgrading but do allow you to fully program the controller as well as activate manual watering if you need to test the zone. The controller has a built in browser & can be accessed from either Safari or Google Chrome browsers from any computer on the same network. It's wifi enabled and the wifi is actually a thumb sized USB wifi unit that plugs into an external USB port on the top. A second USB port on the top is probably for future expansion. The whole front of the unit is a capacitive color touch screen display which not only displays the 5 day weather forecast and what percentage of the watering time you have set it will water that day ( if it's a day you have scheduled ) but also either the last 30 days or last years savings. You can also fully program the unit from the touch screen. The firmware is also remotely upgradable for future enhancements or improvements.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Barely Adequate - missing key features The installation couldn't be easier. However, when trying to water two or more times per day, the RainMachine allows nothing else while waiting - no other zones can run (not even manually), If you need to check/repair a zone, all waiting activity must first be manually cancelled. So, this requires the creation of multiple programs for the same zone groups. And, with multiple zones and multiple program schedules, a lot of juggling is required to work around the limitations. Programs can't be moved so I spend a lot of time deleting and re-creating programs in order to maintain order and clarity. I mounted it in an exterior enclosure for someone to access when we're on vacation - however, the brightness and contrast are not adequate for the screen to be visible in the daylight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smart sprinkler controller that doesn't waste water when it is raining There are a lot of things to like about this device. First the installation is easy. I mounted it next to my old controller and just moved each of the zone's wires one at a time so the zones would remain the same. And I did the same with the C wire (the common) and it started right up. There is a set-up wizard that comes up and you can use the touch screen to enter the data. First you need to define your Wi-Fi network at your house and then enter your street address so it knows with NOAA weather location to use in order to get your local forecast. It also does a firmware update which takes a few minutes but ensures you are running their latest software. Then using the touch screen you define the zones and watering times. It took a couple of minutes to get the local forecast from NOAA and then it displays its forecast plan based on the weather. This is really cool and smart. There are 2 USB ports on the device and the device comes with a USB Wi-Fi adapter (by TP-Link) so make sure that is plugged in all the way so it can connect to your network. I really like this design approach instead of having the Wi-Fi circuit built into the unit because if it were ever to break you can just replace the USB adapter. A free app is available for your smart phone or web browser on your PC that lets you see the forecast and settings and also allows you to program the run times as well as do manual watering. The manual watering feature for me is great. I can use my phone to turn a zone on and then make sure all of the sprinklers are coming up and watering correctly. I did find a couple of sprinkler heads that I needed to replace as well as trimming some grass that was preventing them from coming up. This device makes maintaining your sprinkler heads very easy and that is important to do. The touch screen and display are very nice but the main benefit is the water saved by the unit having the forecast available and the device being smart enough to adjust the run time. Why buy the water when it is falling from the sky for free!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the WiFi smart controller. It does just what it says it does. Doesn't water on rain days... Love the WiFi smart controller. It does just what it says it does. Doesn't water on rain days or waters a percentage of the time depending on the rain probability. Very intuitive to use. Great controller
