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 !

If Wi-Fi is disconnected or lost of signal due to outage will watering still continues as scheduled?

Asked by: Tony
Lets say this ... If my phone is turned off, will the Rain Bird remember all my scheduled watering??? Answer: Yes ... it will. The smart phone App simply controls the Rain Bird and sets new times and schedules, then saves it in the Rain Bird.

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.

8-Zone Smart Irrigation Wi-Fi Timer is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 63.
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.

It has been turned on for 4 days now. After installing the unit to the wall and connecting the wiring, I discovered the power transformer was defective. I temporarily connected the transformer from the Rainbird timer that I had just removed and everything worked ok. That meant a trip to Home Depot to swap out the transformer, return home and install it. Once installed, figuring out how to use the timer/controller and the wifi feature was trial and error. The instructions in the box are worthless. Once I connected the wifi to my home router it seemed to work temporarily. It will not maintain the wifi connection even after moving my wifi extender closer to the timer. I reboot and it works for a few hours and drops the signal. I will post an update if I am able to get the connection to work consistently. If not I plan to return the unit and buy something else

HERE IS A GREAT SITUATION SOLVED WITH THIS RAIN BIRD AND MY PHONE How do I consolidate water use on my yard? Here are two great answers 1. Use my phone & this Rain Bird Device to control water to my zones on the phone when at work or anywhere. <3 2. Use my phone & this Rain Bird Device to PLUG certain sprinkler away from my house not needing water. What is SO COOL about this task is that I do not need to go to my Rain Bird and turn ON and OFF the zone. No need to. I go to my phone and control it there. As far as I know, my phone can talk to the Rain Bird Unit up to 300 yards with no issues. Not sure if that works for something longer than that.

I wanted to thank Rain Bird for their excellent customer service! I reached out to Rain Bird looking for the ST8O outdoor controller not yet available at my local Home Depot. Joe Valdez from Rain Bird customer service told me he would escalate my concerns and get back to me. To be honest I never expected to hear back from Rain Bird customer service again, and because I am impatient, I went back to Home Depot and repurchased the ST8I indoor controller along with an outdoor weather rated enclosure in lieu of the ST8O. One day later Joe from Rain Bird called me with good news and a option to purchase the ST8O unit I needed. I told Joe I had already repurchased the ST8I and a weather rated enclosure but that I was thankful and very impressed with Rain Birds willingness to help me. I had the entire system installed, programmed, and running, within 45 minutes. The set up was easy and straight forward and makes head adjustments and replacements very easy. I demoed the new controller for my neighbor and he was very interested in purchasing one as well. Thank you again Rain Bird for going the extra mile I will surely recommend Rain Bird to my neighbors and friends. PROS: Easy Installation and setup, control via my phone while I'm adjusting sprinkler heads simple on/off, controller is forward looking so if rain is forecast the amount of future watering is adjusted saving energy if you're on a well and saving precious water. CONS: The ST8O outdoor controller is not yet available so I had to purchase an ST8I with a weather rated enclosure. Ultimately not a con though just a new product that's flying off the shelf.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to Program, Multiple Station Settings The Rain Bird 8-station timer was easy to install and program. One feature I really liked was that each station can be programmed to come on up to four times a day. You can set each day different or the entire week the same. The seasonal function was fairly straight forward as well. The location for this timer was far enough away from my wireless Wi-Fi hub that the signal was too weak to properly try out this function. However, it too appears to be easy to use and iy would be nice to monitor my sprinkler system remotely.

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
