EtherRain Networked Sprinkler Controller

Designed for reliable and economical operation, EtherRain is the most flexible networked sprinkler controller currently available. Designed for commercial and residential use, EtherRain networked sprinkler controllers,  combined with compatible software schedulers, provide efficient, accessible, low-maintenance, and cost-effective control of your garden's irrigation.

EtherRain connescts to your  Ethernet network, wired or wireless. EtherRain must be attached to the network through a switch, bridge, or router port. With the availability of an always-on connection (DSL, Cable, T1), EtherRain can be controlled/scheduled without need for a local always-on computer. EtherRain units can be stacked to control a virtually unlimited number of valves.


EtherRain acts as an intelligent client to an irrigation scheduling server. It requires receipt of only one command to start irrigation. Once the command is received, EtherRain manages the complete cycle with no further intervention. A scheduling server is required to deliver the command. This architecture offers many advantages compared to other solutions, including highest reliability (reduced complexity), less maintenance (no battery, no time drift, no schedule loss), better control of irrigation.

A wide array of scheduling servers are compatible with EtherRain including: LawnCheck, MiCasa Verde Vera, HomeSeer, MCS Sprinklers and OptiRain. Each of these scheduling servers provide their own unique benefits. 


EtherRain was designed to be installed in a dry location. Network connectivity is facilitated by the ability to connect EtherRain to an existing network using Wireless/WiFi Bridge devices, Ethernet Powerline adapters, as well as traditional CAT5 network cable.

Note: The EtherRain8 controller requires a 24VAC power supply to operate, which is not supplied.
