Make sure your lawn and garden plants are watered with a programmable timed sprinkler system that can be set up on your PC and controlled with any INSTEON or X10 controller. The INSTEON/X10 8-Zone Sprinkler Controller is an 8-zone irrigation unit capable of controlling up to eight sprinkler valves either individually or in program sequences in response to single INSTEON or X10 command from your PC or a standalone home automation controller. This irrigation controller will work with any standard 24V AC sprinkler system (sold separately), and a free software download is available for easy programming. The Controller requires a 24V AC transformer (sold separately) to power the sprinkler solenoid valves.
While basic functions can be programmed manually, advanced functionality can be programmed with the EZSrve, central automation controller. If you already have a central automation controller or a software package for your INSTEON network that doesn’t have the correct parameters to program the advanced functionality of this device, you can download the free Simplehomenet Utility Suite which works in conjunction with an INSTEON Powerlinc Modem (2412U, 2413U or 2413S). If you need PC-free operation for simple timers, the SHN Utility Suite also interfaces with the INSTEON Powerlinc Controller. Read more

|Review: Works great. My sprinkler controller went out and it was a simple task to connect my existing sprinkler valves to this. I wanted something with more flexibility which I got when I combined this with my Home Control Assistant also sold by SmartHome.|

|Review: Seemed to link up just fine with my ISY99 controller. I did have to download the SimpleHomeNet utility, and connect a serial cable to my PowerLinc modem so that I could update the configuration to convert zone 8 to a pump. (So, now zone 8 comes on when ANY zone comes on, to drive my pump) This was for well water, I might add.|
