I’m having issues with the RFS5 rain/freeze sensor, it will not communicate with the base station. The batteries were pre-installed in the unit (actually taped into the holder) they ran out of power in 2 days even though the label indicated it was manufactured in July 2018 and the purchase was made on July 30, 2028. Customer Service was no help. Still waiting for a call back from Weathermatic tech support. Not happy!!

My wired sensor stopped working. The wire run under the house and can not be replace. I hopeful the wireless will do the job.

Is the RFS5 wireless rain sensor the correct unit for the Weathermatic PL800 controller?

BEST ANSWER: Yes, the RFS5 is a wireless rain and freeze sensor that will work with any SmartLine or ProLine series Weathermatic Controller.

Hope this helps!

I have an older Wethermatic, controller is mostly like the new ones. I have a Irritrol Wireless RainSensor (TM) RFS1000+Freeze. Will they interchange with this sensor?
