- Postpone Watering
Sometimes the rain comes down and does the watering for you…does your
current controller take note of the precipitation and adjust for it in
the watering schedule? The ESP-Me does. So go ahead and plan that party as far
as 14 days in advance Just tell your
controller to keep things dry on the days before and the day of the
event and it will postpone the watering and automatically restart it’s
normal schedule the following day.
- Bypass Rain Sensor by Station
Rain Sensors are a tremendous invention and they are improving year by
year to be more and more smart. However, they fall short in that they
control the entire system, not zone by zone. Got Maybe you have an area
of your yard that won’t receive rainfall the way the rest if the yard
does? The ESP-Me controller allows you to identify these special area in
your yard, allowing them to water as usual even when the rain is coming
down and the other zones are taking a break.
- Adjust watering up or down by
Setting up the perfect watering schedule takes time and finesse. Once
you have it just right, the last thing you want to do change up your
whole schedule just to meet the needs of a new season. ESP-Me
controllers let you increase or decrease your current watering schedule
on a percentage basis.
- Total Run Time Calculator by
There is nothing worse than walking out to the mailbox and having the
sprinklers turn on when you are in the middle of the yard! Rain Bird
incorporates a total time function into the controller that lets you see
how long the entire watering cycle takes and lets you move it up or back
accordingly so that your kids don’t get a sprinkler-surprise on their
way out to catch the bus!
- Advanced warning system
The ESP-Me visually notifies you of problems in the wiring or
electronics of the controller by displaying a a bright red LED as well
as a scrolling message on the front LCD display panel.
- One-button watering
Start your system at the drop of a hat with the single push of just one
button. No more fiddling with adjustments and overrides, get right to
the point with ultimate simplicity.
- Contractor Default™
Customers and Contractors alike love us for inventing and installing the
Contractor Default™ feature. Just like a factory reset, except it
restores the controller back to the optimal programming input by the
contractor. Now if a customer fiddles with the settings, you don’t have
to return to their property to restore the proper watering schedule.
