INSTEON’s line of products has expanded to include a lawn irrigation system controlling up to eight sprinkler valves. The INSTEON product uses the powerline interface to deliver individual and programmed timer commands to your lawn sprinklers.
The system is INSTEON and X10 ready for PC or standalone automation controller commands and includes a free windows XP utility download allowing for easy PC programming of up to four timed irrigation programs.
Make sure your lawn and garden plants are watered with a programmable timed sprinkler system that can be set up on your PC and controlled with any INSTEON or X10 controller. The INSTEON/X10 8-Zone Sprinkler Controller is an 8-zone irrigation unit capable of controlling up to eight sprinkler valves either individually or in program sequences in response to single INSTEON or X10 command from your PC or a standalone home automation controller. This irrigation controller will work with any standard 24V AC sprinkler system (sold separately), and a free software download is available for easy programming. The Controller requires a 24V AC transformer (sold separately) to power the sprinkler solenoid valves.
