The WiFi Forecast Sprinkler. Conserve water.
The RainMachine sprinkler controller automatically adjusts your watering amount by lowering it on rainy or colder days and increasing it on hot summer days. The system not only saves water but it also protects your plants. The versatility of each program is unprecedented: select individual weekdays, Even/Odd day mode, Cycle and Soak, or Station Delay. Run the programs one-at-a-time, sequentially or even in parallel! The RainMachine WIFI sprinkler timer is designed to handle possible conflicts, like simultaneous commands to the same valve or overlapping schedules.
NOAA. A weather ready nation.
Your RainMachine sprinkler controller connects via WIFI and gets the best weather data available on earth. NOAA employs satellites, radars, weather stations and highly qualified meteorologists, delivering the most accurate weather forecast on the planet. Complex mathematical models that run on huge data centers are free for you to use in your garden. Yes, free, already paid from your tax money. Using your exact street location, the RainMachine sprinkler timer downloads precise weather data, accommodating to specific micro-climates. Let it rain!
No data? No problem. Switch to statistics.
When no forecast data is available the RainMachine will automatically switch to historical weather statistics. This way the RainMachine conserves water even if the Internet goes down.
Garden from any screen. Easy connect. Easy control.
Garden from iPhone, garden from Android, garden from any screen. The application automatically discovers all RainMachines on your local network and makes them accessible though an easy to use and secure interface.
Top customer reviews
So, if I love the RainMachine so much way only four stars you may ask. Well, my brand new controller arrived with a defective zone. One of the 12 zones will not activate. I know that things are going to happen, so I'm not so concerned about this one issue. What is more important to me is how a company stands behind their products-- I think that says a lot. I have sent an email to their support and I'm waiting to see how they handle my problem. From everything I've read in other reviews about Green Electronics I have no reason to believe that I will get anything less then stealer service. Once I know more I will update my review.
UPDATE: I was contacted by support within a couple hours and they informed me that I needed to do a firmware upgrade to fix my issue. The upgrade was a simple process that I completed from the Rainmachine app on my phone and only took a few minutes. After the upgrade my issue was resolved. I'm impressed with the quick response from support and my HD-12 is working great now. I'll update my review again once I've used the HD-12 for a while.
I've been using the Rain Machine for a while now and it still works as well as the day I purchased, no issues. Green Electronics has update the firmware a few times and has added additional features. One I really like is the ability to choose other weather data providers, such as Weather Underground. Weather Underground is a whole weather eco system on it's own, which allows me to get weather data from other user's stations, one as close as a mile from my home. If you pick multiple providers then it averages the data from all your choices. Using weather data to help control the amount of water I'm using has saved me 80% over a conventinal "set and forget" stock controller... and that is a good return on my investment.
Update: I am reducing my rating by 2 stars. The connectivity on this is spotty and works great in testing, until I actually want to access it remotely to turn on my sprinklers extra when it gets really hot, or I added a new plant, then I guess my new plant can burn up. I also have problems with the weather updating regularly, It should not sprinkle when its been pouring rain all week, I walk my dog in the rain and they come on, so I go check the RainMachine and theres an error that the weather hasn't updated in a week. check the internet connecting everything is working fine there. I don't know whats up but it needs help definitely not as good as it should be.

- Better IMHO than Rachio. I bought a Rachio and Rain Machine to test them side-by-side. I looked at a few others, too.Read more
