I think I finally found a smart irragation controller I like… only one little issue to resolve I received the RainMachine HD-12 today from Amazon. I’ve had several controller in the past… I started originally with a stock Rain Bird unit that was installed with my system. I immediately knew that it was not going to do the job, so a couple years back I moved to OpenSprinkler, a controller I built from a kit. This unit served me well, but the one feature I really wanted was the weather integration, which by the time it was available on OpenSprinkler my hardware was obsolete, which meant I was going have to upgrade hardware to take advantage of it. Since an upgrade was inevitable, I decided to take a look at what else was on the market. For better or worse (worse as it turned out) I decide to go with a Blossom controller. Blossom is fairly new to the market and I though they had a solid product. As it turned out, the hardware was great, but the software was riddled with issues. I sold the Blossom and today, after much research, I received the RainMachine HD-12. What drew me to…

Internet enabled, simple to use, lawn looks great & water usage is down… + Tips on wiring it. The rainmachine has worked out very well. I’ve had it installed for several months and 3 criteria were defintely met:1) Lawn looks great2) Water usage is way down3) I can easily monitor activity from apps/webIt’s fairly easy to setup once wired. Even though it has an easy & simple touch interface, I primarily use the web and mobile apps (ios & android) to make updates or mostly look at what its been doing, as the unit is in a remote, difficult location in the basement.I evaluated all of the watering the assumptions used for my old controller. I was able to use a 3 day field capacity versus 2 for most zones, and a short mid-day program for 3 ‘hot zones’ in the sun. This causes it to water much less often and as a result use much less water. I could not have changed this on the old controller, as it had one setting and that was based on the worst case hot weather. The RM uses internet weather data adjusts!Wiring was my biggest…

Pros – Better IMHO than Rachio Pros- Better IMHO than Rachio. I bought a Rachio and Rain Machine to test them side-by-side. I looked at a few others, too. I like Rain Machine best (even though it doesn’t yet support flow sensors nor HomeKit (see below)).- Easy to set up and use from the App or the web interface.- I use two on my property now and will be adding a 3rd. App and website easily manage multiple devices. (The wifi irrigation devices I’ve looked at can only run one zone at a time, but my well system can operate 3 zones at a time, so I’ve plumbed my property to allow for 3 irrigation systems).Cons- Sad that it doesn’t support Apple HomeKit. Rain Machine, please add HomeKit support. I can control the rest of my house with Siri, and it would be great to add Rain Machine to that. 5 Start when you do.- Doesn’t support flow sensors (I’d like to install one so I can measure water usage, and see when the system is leaking).- Not sure if it is reading my rain sensor…
