RAIN BIRD Weather sensor
Rachio is NOT affiliated or authorized by RAIN BIRD; the RAIN BIRD brand weather sensors are manufactured by RAIN BIRD. This article is intended for instructional and compatibility purposes only.
Remember to always enable Weather Intelligence features to skip watering schedules BEFORE it rains; rain sensors will only skip watering schedules AFTER it rains.
The Rachio controller (Generation 1 & Generation 2) is NOT compatible with the RAIN BIRD Weather sensor as it has a proprietary connection that will only work with specific RAIN BIRD model controllers, such as the RAIN BIRD ESP-SMTe Smart Irrigation Control System.
