Automate your watering and simplify your life with the new Melnor Raincloud Smart Watering System. This system allows you to get the benefits of the advanced scheduling available with inground, professionally installed irrigation systems without the extreme costs or mess of digging up your yard for installation. Instead, Raincloud allows you to simply connect up to 4 garden hoses (expandable to 8 with the addition of a second Faucet Valve Unit) and connect to the watering device of your choice: Sprinklers, soaker hoses or even drip irrigation systems. No more trying to program your watering timer on a small, hard to read LCD screen like used on traditional watering timers, instead setup and scheduling is easy and all done on your smart phone or tablet using the free Raincloud App or even using your computer on the Raincloud website. Scheduling Raincloud can be as simple as setting to watering once per day every day with each watering zone, to scheduling each zone to water up to 6 times per day for different amounts of time on different days of the week... You decide how simple or complex you want to set your watering schedule to be for the ultimate in scheduling flexibility! If you live in a location with watering restrictions due to drought or limited water supply, Raincloud has you covered with odd/even calendar day scheduling or even specific days of the week scheduling. You can even fully automate the system with the addition of the Melnor AquaSentry Moisture Sensor. This amazing device senses the moisture level in your soil and only allows the Raincloud to water when the soil is dry... If the soil is already wet enough, it tells Raincloud to skip the watering cycle which saves water and is better for your plants. If you are outside and simply need to turn on the water, Raincloud makes it easy with manual control buttons right at the faucet. Engineered with pride in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley, Melnor is your trusted brand for the Great American Lawn.

Fairly easy to set up. Follow the written instructions in the exact order and you won't have a problem. I went off the reservation, and got ahead of myself when registering the units and then had to back track to get them to come online.
The set up menus are easy to understand and playing around with them is the way to go. I didn't download this to my phone, but decided to do it through my desktop which worked like a charm.
This unit can run 4 different lines at 4 different time and also be turned on manually without messing up your settings. That's one of the things I really like. Others that I have used are fussy about being able to do that.
The settings on this range from very simple one zone, one time to just about as complicated as you may ever want to get. Probably more so.
Kudos for giving us 3 separate instructions in 3 languages instead of making it hard to find the English.
This isn't the best quality manufacturing that I've ever seen on one of these, so the life of it may not end up being that long considering exposure to sun and rain. It's also a little hard to make the connections depending on the layout of your faucets and proximity to structures etc.
All in all this is going to be a joy to use and will take care of my whole lawn and garden areas with minimal fuss.
I tried manual watering and it worked fine. After turning the faucet on, I pressed the first button (the only hose I had connected) and waited a few seconds and the water started coming out. Once I was done, I pressed the button again and in a few seconds the water cut off. That is all the setup you have to do outside, unless you wish to connect additional hoses to the timer unit.
The rest of the RainCloud system is operated inside at your internet router and on your smartphone or mobile device. The “smart” part of the system involves you connecting the included control unit to an open slot on your router. Make sure you have an open router port and power outlet nearby. Once connected, you can use the Melnor mobile app to program your timer system to the desired settings. Setting up the control unit and getting the app installed and configured took me about 20-30 minutes in addition to the setup time outside. Overall, I think that is pretty good timing for a system like this one. I now have hoses installed on each of the four slots on my unit and have programmed each of them to run as appropriate. I used to have a more old-fashioned timer unit that allowed for a single hose. Although it got the job done, I think this model by Melnor is a cool, modern alternative. I would never have looked at a hose timer unit and thought—“how could this be smarter?” However, I am grateful that someone did. I highly recommend giving this a try as it has been a great addition to my lawn care arsenal.
Last year we decided that the amount of drip lines we were using was not just cutting it anymore.
We didn't want to deal with which one of us would try and remember when we watered last!
On the Meinor Raincloud The directions are very easy to follow and also how to work the individual timers.
It has an Internet control, which we don't need at the present time .
But after checking into that aspect, I see where the RAINCLOUD internet control would be of great help for those that have a use for that feature.
It's fun walking around and observing the Melnor operate. It is a dream for people going on a vacation, and for others that don’t want to be bother watering all the time.
This is a no brainer once its hooked up. Love it.
