      Answer This Question

      A:  Yes

      by|Apr 25, 2022

        A:  Yes. All or individual zones. You can also adjust the time for that run without affecting the main or primary irrigation schedule. 

        by|Apr 25, 2022

          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.

          by|Apr 25, 2022

            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.

            by|Apr 25, 2022

              A:  Yes, you and engage at any time for any duration.

                Q:Can the weather sensor be disabled or bypassed and still control the system thru wifi
                by|Jan 25, 2022
                3 Answers
                Answer This Question

                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. 

                by|Jan 26, 2022

                  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.

                  by|Jan 26, 2022

                    A:  Yes, you can turn the run any station or group of stations anytime whether the unit is on rain delay or not.

                      Q:Does the unit continue to work when the WiFi is not connected or is interrupted?
                      by|Oct 19, 2021
                      2 Answers
                      Answer This Question

                      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.

                        Excellent well respected brand, sprinkler control timer! I love it! It is "So Much Easier" to program then the old fashion outdated timers & the fact that I can control it from anywhere in the world via wi-fi app, totally awesome! Did I say it's extremely easy to program? So easy, even a caveman man can could do it... LoL!! (that would be me) Even installed it myself... I highly Recommend this Irrigation Controller for your outdoor garden/yard.

                                Could never get the wifi to work, despite adding an extender to my system. software is far from intuitive. instructions are incomplete. Almost glad a lightning strike fried it so I could try another brand. very happy with my new Hunter controller.

                                  Very cool and easy to use. The wifi/app feature means I don't have to keep getting up, going outside, turning the controller On or Off (depending on the Florida rain patterns) which gets annoying. The app allows me to customize everything from my recliner (or hotel room). Much easier to use then the controller panel itself. One warning... if you hook it to an irrigation pump (I have a shallow well pump, not city water), go get the actual manual from the website on how to hook it up. It's not intuitive and will drive you nuts. I had to add jumpers to act as a 'pump start delay' which is NOT in the Quick Start Guide. Taking photos of the existing controller wiring is a great idea, but it wasn't apples-to-apples wiring between the old and the new. I'm happy enough with it to recommend it (especially in FL).
