8-Zone ZigBee/Insteon/X10 Irrigation Controller

You can monitor and control your irrigation system from anywhere with the RainBee8 irrigation controller.  Independent control over each sprinkler zone, as well as the ability to create programs, gives you maximum flexibility.

Smart Possibilities:

  • Make irrigation schedules based on local sunrise or sunset to minimize evaporation loss
  • Get notified of possible sprinkler head leak when consumption is too high
  • Easily adjust timers from your smart phone if weather takes a sudden turn

Please Note: Due to manufacturer availability, this device will be equipped with a singleband PLM(without access to the passthrough outlet) instead of the dualband PLM.

Details

RainBee8 is a compact 8 zone irrigation controller that lets you manage your irrigation system from anywhere with maximum flexibility.  We’ve taken our best selling irrigation controller, EZFlora, and added to its communication skill set!  RainBee8 speaks to ZigBee (HA profile) compatible controllers in addition to Insteon and/or X10.

RainBee8’s independent control over 8 sprinkler zones provides effective water management by watering only when your lawn, garden, or crops need it.  You have access to your system from your phone, tablet, or web browser with the iSmartenit app, allowing pinpoint control over individual zones, programs, and schedules.  It stores up to 4 individual programs that can be run with a single command.  Large properties are no problem, as one of RainBee8’s outputs can manage a booster pump.  In addition, RainBee8 offers an interface for water meters to monitor water consumption.  Including your irrigation in your home control system will end up saving you a lot of water and money!
