RC2 Indoor has been added to Rain Bird’s powerful touch screen RC2 Smart Irrigation Controller range.
For installation indoors, and not requiring outdoor weather or IP (Ingress Protection) features, it is a highly competitively priced controller for homeowners and landscape contractors.
Rain Bird’s LNK2 WiFi fully encrypted wireless communication module is built-in to give RC2 Indoor fast and stable online connectivity. It is fully accessible and programmable from compatible iOS or Android devices equipped with Rain Bird’s App. Set up is simple thanks to Quick Pair technology that connects the controller to the phone or tablet, making RC2 the fastest and most efficiently programmed controller available.
As an indoor controller without the complexities of outdoor installation, RC2 Indoor is accessible to end users in the residential or light commercial sectors who can install the controller themselves. It is available in 4,6 and 8 station capacities, each with three independent programs and four start times per program. The App gives users a fast and simple irrigation programming experience and for contractors full instant control of multiple sites, zones and schedules. Commonly used irrigation schedule templates can be used as well as customised programs.
Data from local weather sources can be obtained over the internet, enabling adjustment of daily run times so that a landscape receives only the water it needs, resulting in possible water savings of up to 50%. Other advanced features include cycle and soak and seasonal adjustments by program to increase or reduce watering according to time of year. Alerts enable users to monitor and manage irrigation events and warnings, such as leaks or predicted weather changes, and prevent over or underwatering.
The RC2 Indoor interface provides simple commands and the convenience of being able to implement automatic or manual watering right at the controller without a local WiFi or mobile network. In the event of power failure, the RC2 Indoor memorises and permanently saves the current programming. All Rain Bird residential or commercial rotors, valves, nozzles, sprays and drip irrigation products are compatible with RC2 Indoor as well as recommended accessories including rain and freeze sensors.
