Essential Info

The Orbit Hard Wired Rain/Freeze Sensor will provide conservation, convenience, and flexibility to your fully automatic watering system. Never again will you see your sprinklers running on a rainy day. After a set amount of rain has fallen and/or freezing temperatures exist, the sensor engages a switch that will prevent the timer from watering. The added freeze sensor will provide peace of mind when the temperature drops below 37°F (3°C) by interrupting your sprinklers and reduce the hazards of standing water freezing on your driveway, sidewalks, and patios. Once the rain sensor has dried sufficiently, the sensor allows normal sprinkler operation to resume.

Control your sprinkler system with this Orbit Rain-and-Freeze Sensor, which shuts the system off under rainy or freezing conditions. Customize the sensor with adjustable rain sensitivity control and automatic rain delay. This sensor helps prevent over-watering or dangerous, icy conditions due to sprinkler operation.
