A Weather Ready Nation
RainMachine connects via Wi-Fi and downloads weather data every 6 hours. NOAA employs satellites, radars and thousands of weather stations, delivering the most accurate weather forecast on Earth.
Advanced climate modeling running on huge datacenters are free for you to use in your garden.
Keep the Password to Yourself.
Do not expose your garden to the Internet. RainMachine keeps all credentials local, on your device, not on a internet server. This means you do not have to rely on a third party service to protect your garden.
Multiple Data Sources.
Ultimate Data Stability.
The RainMachine has the ability to gather meteorological data from multiple data sources, like: NOAA, WUnderground, NetAtmo, FAWN, CIMIS, Mesonet, Davis, Metno, DarkSky, Deutscher Wetterdienst, Australian Bureau of Meteorology and Open Weather Map, humans and machines can access weather data streams such as: max temperature, minimum temperature, humidity, wind speed, solar radiation, water vapor pressure, amount of precipitation.
These national and international weather services provide pin-point and reliable and free up-to-date weather forecasts. Imagine a chorus of voices singing in unison, if one voice stops, the song will still go on. That way, your garden can rely on accurate data on which to base watering schedules.
Your Plants are Protected.
The RainMachine protects your garden against unexpected hot or freezing conditions. For example, it ceases to water if temperature goes below a preset value.
Additionally, you can suspend all programs for a number of days or months, according to your local climate.
Let It Rain.
With rapidly changing weather patterns, the RainMachine never gets left behind. Updating forecast data several times a day the RainMachine delivers the most accurate EvapoTraspiration calculations.
Unlike other sprinkler controllers that use zip codes, the RainMachine uses exact street address location, downloading precise weather data in within less than 1.5 miles (2.5 km) grid. Let it rain!
