A: Yes it does.

A: The Rain Bird ST8 Controller has the ability to set up automatic watering schedules that can be scheduled by any day of the week, time of day or watering duration, as well as engage manual watering of any zone at any time via the controller or through the Rain Bird mobile app. Should you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact our technical support at 1-800-RAIN BIRD (800-724-6247), and we’d be more than happy to assist.
A: Yes. It's a matter of pressing "Water Now", pressing the Next key to view the list of zones, pressing the Up or Down button to choose the zone to water, pressing Next to select the time to water, pressing the Up or Down button to select watering time, and pressing Next to kick it off.
A: Yes, you and engage at any time for any duration.
A: The weather sensor never works. My system comes on in the middle of a three day rain storm. I read reviews on this problem before I purchased and the reviews are correct, it’s doesn’t work.
A: Yes. When the controller is connected to WiFi, all of the controller settings can be accessed via the Rain Bird App. When in the App, under the "Edit Controller" tab there is an icon in the ribbon that looks like a rain sensor. There, you can toggle the Rain Sensor to "Bypass" or "Active." This simple toggle will save you from having to manually disconnect the rain sensor from the controller terminal block if you're not using/bypassing. Regardless of selection, all of the controller settings, including editing and/or activating schedules, can still be accessed and run. Should you have any additional questions, or for help setting up or operating the ST8-WiFi Controller, please feel free to contact our technical support at 1-800-RAIN BIRD (800-724-6247) and we'd be more than happy to assist.
A: Yes, you can turn the run any station or group of stations anytime whether the unit is on rain delay or not.
A: The ST8-WiFi Timer interface allows for visual confirmation of schedule as well as custom programming when a mobile device or WI-Fi isn't available so it remains operational. Additionally, two AAA batteries may be installed to retain the date and time in the event of a power outage, while programming is stored in non-volatile memory, and will remain in the timer even if batteries are not installed. Should you have any additional questions, or for help setting up and operating the ST8-WiFi Timer, please feel free to contact our technical support at 1-800-RAIN BIRD (800-724-6247) and we'd be more than happy to assist.
