Conserve water. Save your wallet.
According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), as much as 70% of a home's total water use during the dry season may go to landscape irrigation. Experts estimate that more than 50% of landscape water is wasted due to overwatering.
Using seven-day forecasts, the RainMachine efficiently adjusts your watering schedule using real time temperature, wind and rainfall data. It was scientifically designed to improve watering efficiency and dramatically reduce water waste.
Easy to setup. Easy to use.
Everything is displayed on your touch screen. The RainMachine defines a new class of easy-to-use smart sprinkler controller. Forget rotary switches, and no more blinking clocks.
The RainMachine offers a virtually unlimited number of options. Its programming versatility is unprecedented: specific weekdays, even or odd days, cycle and soak, or station delay.
Garden from any Screen. Easy Connect. Easy Control.
Connect from a smart phone or tablet to control water use remotely. The application automatically discovers any RainMachines on your local network and makes them accessible through an easy-to-use secure interface.

NOAA A weather ready nation.
RainMachine connects via Wi-Fi and downloads weather data every 6 hours. NOAA employs satellites, radars and thousands of weather stations, delivering the most accurate weather forecast on Earth.
Advanced climate modeling running on huge datacenters are free for you to use in your garden.
NOAA - National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
Enhanced security. Keep the password to yourself.
Do not expose your garden to the Internet. RainMachine keeps all credentials local, on your device, not on a internet server. This means you do not have to rely on a third party service to protect your garden.
Multiple Data Sources. Ultimate data stability.
The RainMachine has the ability to gather meteorological data from multiple data sources, increasing accuracy and reliability. Imagine a chorus of voices singing in unison, if one voice stops, the song will still go on. That way, your garden can rely on accurate data on which to base watering schedules.
Extreme Temperatures. Your plants are protected.
The RainMachine protects your garden against unexpected hot or freezing conditions. For example, it ceases to water if temperature goes below a preset value.
Additionally, you can suspend all programs for a number of days or months, according to your local climate.
During extremely hot days, the RainMachine will increase water output to provide your garden with the optimal amount needed to flourish.
Precision Forecast. Let it rain.
With rapidly changing weather patterns, the RainMachine never gets left behind. Updating forecast data several times a day the RainMachine delivers the most accurate EvapoTraspiration calculations.
Unlike other sprinkler controllers that use zip codes, the RainMachine uses exact street address location, downloading precise weather data in within less than 1.5 miles (2.5 km) grid. Let it rain!
Nobody else owns your Garden. Cloud independent by design.
By design, nobody else has the control of your garden. You are not tethered to a cloud service of any kind.
RainMachine connects via Wi-Fi to trusted National and International weather data sources and adjusts daily watering amount. The machine stays in sync with Nature for optimal efficiency. All this data is available free to RainMachine users.
OpenSource, the Ultimate Accountability. Code. Share. Evolve.
Because we provide our evapotranspiration formula source code and API, we make our work trusted and verifiable. User contributions from around the world will help the community and continue to evolve the product.
How it works
Traditional irrigation controllers Mindless 1 bit devices
In short, traditional irrigation controllers are hard to setup, difficult to operate, dumb machines that run primitive watering programs. In fact, irrigation controllers are known to be one of the most hated home automation devices.
Meet the Ultimate Smart Wi-Fi sprinkler In Sync with Nature.
The only way a smart sprinkler can truly conserve water is to listen to nature. By being synchronized with all weather events, the RainMachine can calculate daily evapotranspiration losses and adjust the watering duration as defined in your Programs.
In layman’s terms, the RainMachine takes something that is given (base watering duration) with something it learns (weather data) and produces an output that augments nature’s cycle in such a way that your garden is protected and nourished to perfection.
Weather data. Land stations and Satellites at your service.
Thanks to NOAA and other international weather data sources, humans and machines can access weather data streams such as: max temperature, minimum temperature, humidity, wind speed, solar radiation, water vapor pressure, amount of precipitation. These national and international weather services provide reliable and free up-to-date forecasts.
Weather data, how precise? Satellite & land station performance
The National Digital Forecast Database’s (NDFD) high-resolution digital weather forecast provides you with the ultimate in location precision and data forecast accuracy, based on 1.5 miles spatial resolution.
Measured weather deviations and you will understand the accuracy of your RainMachine.
OpenSource, the Ultimate Accountability Code. Share. Evolve.
As we make our evapotranspiration formula source code freely available, our work is verifiable and can be trusted. User contributions from around the world continue to support the RainMachine community and enhance the product.
Phones and Tablets. iOS and Android is our DNA.
All of our devices are fully compatible with iOS and Android based applications. Manually control valves and create programs from your mobile device.
The User Experience (UX) provided by our easy to use iOS and Android applications is simply unmatched by the yesterday's antiquated sprinkler user interfaces. We simply found a better way to interact with your garden.
