Cyber-Rain Sprinkler Controller Takes Bite Out of Water Bills


OAK PARK, CALIF.—Designed to conserve water and reduce costs associated with water consumption, the Cyber-Rain XCI eight-zone sprinkler controller is an easy-to-use computerized system that manages an area’s watering needs. It is the most effective solution for hotels in areas with severe water shortages.

The Cyber-Rain XCI combines the power of a PC, the internet, and the latest wireless technology to automatically manage a property’s watering schedule based on weather conditions. Features include software that allows you to set your watering schedule in minutes. The system will also automatically check your local weather forecast several times a day via the Internet and make adjustments in the watering schedule. If the forecast is for rain, the system will stop watering for 24 hours.

After every weather check, the system will change the percentage of watering each zone needs, based on the humidity and precipitation forecasted in your area. Cyber-Rain breaks the watering schedule into cycle and soak segments to eliminate runoff. Users can customize the pattern for each zone individually depending on type of soil or slope.

The Cyber-Rain XCI calculates the percentage of water needed in an area based on seasonality and the number of minutes currently programmed for each zone. Cyber-Rain XCI uses the watering index table if a PC is offline.

With sod and seed and fertilizing features, one can temporarily increase the percentage of water in a specific zone. The controller wirelessly reports to the PC every time each sprinkler comes on. One can use the activity report for fine tuning a schedule or keeping track of water usage in individual zones. The system uses a USB port and connects wirelessly to the sprinkler controller and automatically transmits changes in the watering schedule. The system utilizes state-of-the-art bidirectional wireless technology. The controller also wirelessly transmits reports of its activities to a PC for tracking and reporting.
