The unit started putting out a constant 24 volts to the pump relay even when not watering. I went on the RainMachine website and there is no way to call or talk to a person. I had to send an email stating my problem. I got a response saying that it looked like the unit would have to be repaired or replaced. They asked for a copy of my proof of purchase. Since I had the unit several years and it was out of warranty, I had no proof of purchase. I wrote and told them this saying I would be happy to pay for the repair. I never heard from them again. Looks like I will have to purchase a new unit. Not very happy!

The ease of installation (followed instructions and there were no hitches or surprises). The ability to manage all from my phone makes this unit great! I paired it with a rain sensor and the system works perfectly. The only part I could have a slightly irritated comment about would be Home Depot and its shipping to stores. They are slow about moving product to you. Other than that I would highly recommend this unit to anyone who is upgrading. An added bonus for my area is that the City Water Division is offering to rebates on upgrades like this. So after all is said and done I ended up getting back 80% of what I spent for the until and the rain sensor!

The unit is working fantastic and is extremely precise with numerous choices of watering programs, irrigation types, and zones. Has been very accurate in apportioning watering times with weather changes. Thanks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from wary smart sprinkler system While I've only had the RainMachine installed for 5 days, I did check to see if it actually varied the watering times based on it's daily calculated watering percentage ( you set the watering time for each zone at what would you like to be on a typical summer day and the controller varies it down based on the forecasted hi & low temps from NOAA as well as projected rain. It will also increase watering if the forecasted temps are significantly higher than the average summer temps for your location ). It does vary the watering times based on the daily weather forecast exactly as advertised. The Android apps run a little slow and could use some tweaking & upgrading but do allow you to fully program the controller as well as activate manual watering if you need to test the zone. The controller has a built in browser & can be accessed from either Safari or Google Chrome browsers from any computer on the same network. It's wifi enabled and the wifi is actually a thumb sized USB wifi unit that plugs into an external USB port on the top. A second USB port on the top is probably for future expansion. The whole front of the unit is a capacitive color touch screen display which not only displays the 5 day weather forecast and what percentage of the watering time you have set it will water that day ( if it's a day you have scheduled ) but also either the last 30 days or last years savings. You can also fully program the unit from the touch screen. The firmware is also remotely upgradable for future enhancements or improvements.
