Will this work with Rainbird ESP4 controller?

Asked by: Bill
Thanks for the answer, But I did end up calling Rainbird because the manual made no reference to a rain sensor. They said mine is too old and it was not possible to attach a sensor - so I bought a new controller and wireless sensor. The whole package was cheaper than I thought so I did it.

Asked by: Brad
Hi Brad, I believe it would be best to reach out to the manufacturer Orbit for assistance, as we do not offer replacement parts. I have linked their website below with their contact information page so that you may receive the best details from their specialists. Hope this helps!

RF Rain/Freeze Sensor is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 21.

The batteries CR2032 only last 2 years and you don't really find out that they have failed, because the fail detect indicator is not easily noticed. Also, when I took it down today to change the battery and I inadvertently dropped in on the concrete garage floor and it shattered, presumably because the plastic has become brittle from UV exposure. I'd prefer a wired sensor, but the wired sensor doesn't have the override switch. The orbit timer doesn't have any indication that the rain sensor is active, so it is much harder to test. Sigh.

I bought a house with a wired sensor that wasn't working, when trying to fix it I realized the wires were cut somewhere and it will require me a lot of work to rewire.. this wireless sensor is the perfect solution. Easy to install, just be aware that you need a sprinkler control panel with 24v output.

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.

I have been using this rain sensor for about two years now and haven't had any problems. Changed batteries about a year into it and again just the other day. Wanted to make sure it was communicating with the main unit so I pressed the manual test stem. The sensor light did come on for about 2 seconds then it went off. I thought I had a problem as I remember the sensor light was lite all the time but apparently I was wrong according to customer support. So now I have some testing to do. The manual doesn't state whether the light stays on or goes off it just states the light should light. Now my comment about this unit is not negative it meant to be constructive. How do I know my transmitter is communicating with the unit without taken it off the gutter and going to the control unit to see if the light comes on? I would prefer the light would stay on but that's just me. The other comment when trying to call customer support the first time I was on hold for about 25 minutes and finally gave up and the second time was 40 minutes before I reached a representative. Now the recorded message tells me how reliable their products are. Well if I have to wait an average of 30 minutes that tells me they have a lot of problems with their products at least that is the feeling I get.
