Sorry....yes it works with most controllers out there. Just so they have the sensor outlet in the controller. If they don't you can still add it do your system.

<br />I now suggest the Hunter Wireless rain sensor. That thing is awesome and requires no wires to the controller but only from the reciever and controller.

Is that compatible with a rainbird controller? Very interesting indeed. How do you know when the batteries are about to die?

<br />You should use 18 or 16 guage wire that is designed for direct burial so that you will not be degraded by the harsh outside elements.

I also have the rainbird sensor. I was thinking of possibly mounting it on the side of my roof where there's no gutter for the rain. Where do most people mount these things anyway? Also, I understand you use 18 or 16 AWG wire for the connections. How are these then wired into my controller to control the zones. Sorry, about the nature of the questions, but i'm still just working out the details. Any help appreciated.

Rainbird RainCheck

Where do you install the wires on the rainbird raincheck? my neighbor said that i can use lamp wire to connect the wire and the controller together. Is that right?
