Stop Looking THIS IS THE ONE 3/19/2018 8:59:31 AM

Pros: Hands off after setup. Easy to use in any situation. Worked with four different brands and models of routers and modem/router combos. Literally every single one I tried worked. It gets weather real time from my WUnderground weatherstation in my back yard so literally if i t rains across town and not here it still knows to water and not schedule incorrectly. Amazing!

Cons: It has two or three times lost internet connection over the past two years. I didn't know until I tried accessing it via the app. Watering still was taking place so no huge issue - just a slight annoyance.

Overall Review: I would highly recommend this product. I have had no real issues and today I needed to work on a few sprikler heads - adjust etc. It was great to be able to roam the property and turn on and off the zones without having to run back and forth to the controller.

Easy Install RainMachine better than RainMan 3/19/2018 8:32:44 AM

Pros: Easy setup
Loaded App on my Smart Phone, and it walked you through setup
(be sure to have your router password handy)
Interface easy to use, Local Login or WWW Login.
Eight Zones individually controlled
It is truly a SMART Irrigation Controller it Talks to N.O.A.A. ( National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) to predict its operational needs Hot /Cold /Wet /Dry
It will guide you trough almost any type of watering condition you are likely to encounter. slope, soil type, Water Restrictions, Plant types, Sun exposure, sprinkler type, area size.
It uses your Smart Phone to Geo-Locate the system for accurate weather settings.
Hey this is smarter than your Gardener

Cons: Had trouble Figuring how to turn on manual watering, but good news,
it's easy use mouse to grab Zone Time button slide to right!
Connector did not like stranded 18Ga wire, solid 20Ga is good

Overall Review: I built a really awesome system 30 years ago, but the clock motors died, I always wanted a truly Smart system and this RainMachine has ALL the Bells and Whistles and so much more. A Smart System like this 15 years ago would have cost over $1000 and not have had even half the features.

Pays for Itself! 9/17/2017 4:39:23 AM

Pros: I've saved on my water bill much more than the cost of this unit since I installed it three months ago, replacing a traditional controller. Its ability to reduce watering based on weather far exceeds that of a rain sensor. The ability to control it from you phone or tablet is very cool when you are servicing the system.

Cons: The housing is too small to contain the wires unless you can hide the wires inside your wall. I purchased a plastic housing for the unit to cover the wires, even though my installation is indoors.

Overall Review: Be aware that it is 8 zones only if you don't have a master. It is 7 zones if you have a master valve.

Quite useful device 6/2/2017 12:54:00 PM

Pros: I easily paired the device with my WiFi inside my house and verified that the mounting location was in range. It was easy to pull the old wiring from the old controller and attach. The power brick was larger than the old brick which required a bit of work. The programming was setup after some confusion and it's working well. Best of all, I don't have to do much when rain is forecast. The unit adjusts and the other weather adjustments seem targeted at saving water.

Cons: The interface isn't quite as intuitive as I expected. The enclosed manual isn't all that great but the website helps. The initial setup took a bit but I seem to have gotten it down. I have yet to calculate the actual area covered by bubblers so the machine's calculations will work better.

Overall Review: I have recommended this for my friends. We are all more aware of the need to adjust watering to weather and the device makes that easier.

Thank the lord for this machine! 4/24/2017 6:43:27 PM

Pros: - I no longer have to hand water my front yard in 100+ degree weather.

Cons: - None

Overall Review: I mean look if you've got a working irrigation controller and you love it then good for you I'm not trying to sell anyone. When my wife and I bought our home we had this giant ugly half broken old irrigation system that was out of place and a pain to program. I bought this like a year ago on sale and installed it and got it working with my phone only to find out my front anti-siphon valve was leaky. So for the past year I have been hand watering our palm trees and bushes. It sucked when it got hot and I did not do it nearly as often as I should've and we lost a couple plants. Finally had someone come out to fix the anti-siphon valve since I obviously wasn't getting around to it. I'm in love now. If I want to water the plants I can do it from my phone. Also setting up a schedule was way too easy. I've programmed plenty of those antiquated controllers and they range from confusing to pain in my a**. This thing is how it should be. Easy, simple interface and you tell it what you want it to do. For me I have a single zone in my front yard with a desert landscape so it's pretty straight forward.

Pros: - installed in minutes
- provides great features such as 'soak' that splits watering time to minimize run off

- so much easier to turn zones on and off than trying to remember number codes and sequence of buttons to push

Cons: - non yet

Overall Review: - awaiting rebate from my water company that should make this 'free'
