Questions & Answers

How is this installed ? Ive never done this before how handy do you have to be ?

Asked by: Rick
Directions are fairly straight forward. Each control valve has a dedicated wire with a common ground. You should be ok, hard to screw up as long as you get the power hooked correctly and properly identify the wires going to the valves.

Why doesn’t it work when I set it on timer but it works manually does it have to do with something about the WiFi?

Asked by: Nano
If running as a stand alone controller (ie. without wifi) the controller should work when properly as a programmed unit as well as on manual. I purchased this wifi controller so I could adjust my watering parameters when not at home (mine is in my seasonal home in FL). I have personally had numerous problems with the wifi feature to the point that I have given up and rely on my lawn guy to keep me informed about the condition of my lawn (which isn't necessarily all that reliable). Of the the Rainbird guys point the finger at Comcast and Comcast points the finger back at Rainbird. The saving grace is that I don't seem to have problems with my internet connection while using my computer and even added a nearby wifi extender as suggested by Rainbird . . . which did not solve the issue. I'm guessing Rainbird has a firmware problem. Hopefully their listening !

Does it work in outdoor?

Does it work in outdoor?
Asked by: Romx
I believe that Rain Bird has two models of this unit - one for indoor use, and one for outdoor use. As far as I can tell, the only difference is that the outdoor model has a door that covers the front of the unit, which probably just keeps it from the weather elements.

Does it has battery backup function?

Does it has battery backup function?
Asked by: Paul
The unit has 2 AA batteries installed in it. I assume they are for maintaining the unit's settings (time, date, and your irrigation program) if the electricity fails. I doubt the small batteries would power the solenoid valves to actually run your irrigation program when there isn't any electricity during that time.

8-Zone Smart Irrigation Wi-Fi Timer is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 59.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rain Bird still makes the best I've had my old sprinkler controller for 16 years and never had a problem with it. And it was a Rain Bird. Now that they have a WiFi model I was very excited to get it. I have an Android smart phone and downloaded their free app from Google Play and had it up and running quickly. I like the four Watering options. 1) Calendar days or intervals (for example, Monday, Wednesday and Friday) on which watering is allowed. 2) Custom Days -To schedule watering to occur on selected days of the week, 3) Odd Days -To schedule watering to occur on all odd calendar days (1,3,5...29 etc.), 4) Cyclic Days - To schedule watering to occur at intervals (every 2 days, or 3 days, etc.), There are 8 zones and each one can have its own duration or copied from another zone. I like to have my zones to run in order, but all can be turned on at the same time. I like to be able to use the app and turn each zone on in sequence as I walk around my property and watch and make sure all of the sprinklers are working correct.

If it were not for the ability to turn the timer off/on from the app or to start a complete cycle of the sprinkler system I would have rated this unit 5 stars. Hopefully with a firmware update or something to give those two missing abilities I will have to stick with 4 stars.

From the control itself, you should be able to just select run all without having to set the run time which affects all zones. Also, same from the app.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good timer but not the best I have had this rainbird wifi timer for more than a year. The positives: you can access this timer from anywhere you have cell service or wifi. You can set programs or turn on stations from anywhere. If you are at work and it starts raining just go to the ap and shut off the system. I have never controlled the unit from the timer itself only from the ap. I also like being able to turn on zones from the yard when repairing heads or working in the yard. Ok, the negatives. Sometimes when you try to access the ap you get an error message. I sometimes have to close out the ap and try again which is frustrating. Also after you open the ap you then have to connect to the timer , which is very slow. I would think this should be much faster. Over all it is much easier to program stations with the ap than to stand in the garage and do it at the timer. I would recomend this unit as the price is one of the best for the features you get
