    Q:Can this replace the Hunter Wireless Clik? Seems like all the voltages/wiring are the same. This would be a better solution since the batteries can be replaced (unlike the Hunter Click).

    Answer This Question

          Rubbish - 3 and out!
          Cheap and easy to wire and pair sensor. I bought the first one last summer. After the first good rain, the sensor tripped as expected, but after a week of sun, it never reset. I took it down and barely tapped the spindle and it reset. Same thing the second good rain. Orbit sent me a prompt replacement. Same problem. They sent another...same thing. The sensor relies on a dated, super low-tech method using absorbent discs the swell when wet and push the spindle down on a micro switch. The problem is when the disks dry out, and the gradually shrink back down, the switch does not push the spindle up reliably.

            Just bought this rain senor to use with my Hunter sprinkler control box. Hook-up was a piece of cake. I did a quick reprogram of my sprinkler watering schedule to verify the rain senor was working (with my Hunter system, rain sensor will NOT work in manual run mode). When they came on at 8 PM, I pressed the test button at the top of the actual sensor (part that goes outside). There was a "click" sound from the receiver (part that wires into the sprinkler control box). And then the umbrella appeared on the screen for the sprinkler control box screen and like magic, they just turned off! When I released it, they came back on so I poured a little water on the senor itself and they turned back off (it just powered about 2 hours ago). I just bought my new home and the sprinkler system had been set to run EVERYDAY for 20 minutes. My water bill is almost $130 and its just me and my wife in the house. So between me changing the watering days/time/duration and buying the water sensor, I really believe my next water bill will be reasonable.

              This Orbit Rain/Freeze Sensor worked perfectly and was very easy to install.

              The Orbit rain/ freeze sensor I recently purchased seems to be OK. The instructions for installation and use seem to be very straightforward and easy to follow. The sprinkler system works well after installation and the button to halt the sprinklers is functioning properly. Not sure if the rain sensor function is working due to the small amount of rain that weather have experienced lately but am very confident that it will work and will be able to be adjusted to my requirements.

              This is the second Orbit RF Rain/Freeze Sensor I have purchased. The first one worked flawlessly, but a tree limb fell taking out the sensor. These devices do exactly what they are supposed to do. After a rain, the unit prohibits the sprinkler system from activating and recently during a hard freeze, the until prevented the sprinkler system from activating. I highly recommend this product.

              My husband is very handy at all home improvements. However, he found this product very difficult to figure out the installation instructions. Have to return it.

              Easy install. Interacts easily with the installed controller. Two wires and done. Saved $100 on pro installation.
