Essential Info

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 EZFlora 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.

While basic functions can be programmed manually, advanced functionality can be programmed with the EZSrve, central automation controller. If you already have a central automation controller or a software package for your INSTEON network that doesn't have the correct parameters to program the advanced functionality of this device, you can download the free Smartenit Utility Suite which works in conjunction with an INSTEON Powerlinc Modem (2412U, 2413U or 2413S). If you need PC-free operation for simple timers, the SHN Utility Suite also interfaces with the INSTEON Powerlinc Controller.

Note: The EZSrve, central automation controller or a PowerLinc Controller - INSTEON USB Interface is needed for the timer programming.

Note: This product is not currently compatible with the INSTEON Hub

    Free Windows XP Control and Timer Software Download
    Download the free Smartenit Utility Suite below to set up zone programming and timers. This Windows XP utility is compatible with INSTEON and X10 for flexible remote programming and control. You'll appreciate the program's flexibility in setting up cost-saving, energy-efficient, and environmentally responsible irrigation systems. Best of all, the built-in powerline interface stores your timed programs, so you won't need to leave the PC on in order for the system to turn your sprinklers on and off at scheduled times.

    Flexible Programming Options
    Program the INSTEON/X10 8-Zone Sprinkler Controller to turn your sprinklers on and off at specific times at designated intervals. This will keep your lawn green without overwatering your plants. Set up to four independent irrigation programs for different zones of your yard. One valve is programmable for pump (always on) control, and separate timers are stored to prevent a valve from being left on indefinitely.

    INSTEON and X10 Compatible
    Built-in technology makes the INSTEON/X10 8-Zone Sprinkler Controller usable immediately with INSTEON commands. Additionally, X10 compatibility and easy X10 coding allow the unit to be usable right away with any X10-supported package. The INSTEON/X10 8-Zone Sprinkler Controller will also act as a repeater of powerline INSTEON signals.

    I will hold my breath awhile. This is a replacement I purchased for an identical unit which stopped working (10 months old). I think the first may have gone out from a power surge. I installed an in wall surge protector with the new one and it is working as expected.
    John -- dallas, TX   6/13/2014
    Mixed emotions. While it worked, I loved this product. After about eight months, it quit working and now I am trying to decide whether to spend $75 to have it repaired maybe or buy a new unit.
    SCOTT -- menifee, CA   6/3/2014
    This works very well, and it's great to be able to determine watering schedules programmatically via an ISY-994.
    DON -- cypress, CA   5/29/2014
    Good controller, A little light in the power rating. and price per point is a little high. But a good building block for irrigation control
    MIKE -- keller, TX   5/16/2014
    Great product. This is my second time ordering this item. The first one lasted me two years without a problem then my dog decided it was time for a new one so he dug up wires and shorted the whole thing out.
    CHARLES -- clearwater, FL   4/20/2014
    Works exactly as expected. Had up and running in about 3 minutes with my isy994.
    Ian Holmes -- new orleans, LA   4/20/2014
    Interested in swapping your old controller with the EZFlora? I use this web interface for my sprinkler
    BARRY -- los altos, CA   4/18/2014
    No support in Insteon Hub. This isn't made clear and Insteon support has been slow and unhelpful.
    jtempleton -- California   11/29/2013
    I have 2 of them, and these things work great. On the other hand, SmartHome's support for them is non-existent. So if you're thinking you will control them with any SmartHome brand controller HouseLinc/SmartLinc/Hub, be prepared for a lot of pain.
    Pierre -- Minnesota   9/2/2013
    Works great until a storm shows up then it dies. I replaced it 3 times last summer, twice this summer. It needs built-in surge protector on the valve side!
    WILLIAM E -- scottsdale, AZ   8/30/2013
    Using it with the ISY99i. Easy setup and use. Using four zones. Works great, and I can control my sprinklers from my iPhone too. It's all I expected it to be, and more!
    RICHARD -- houston, TX   8/12/2013
    So far so good! The ease of programming my irrigation using an Inston-compatible front end is alone worth the price of this device. Rain Bird needs some training in the User experience dept.
    Scott Siemer -- United States   8/7/2013
    I installed this unit to work with my ISY99. I wanted to be able to make precise changes between sprinkler zones because I have a large irrigation pump that can over-pressure easily. The unit is very responsive and allows me to make fluid changes between zones. Even though it is not an issue for my application - I was surprised to learn that the unit can only open one zone at a time. You have to turn one zone off before you can turn another on. I recommend that this fact be make more clear in the unit description. I like that the unit is stand-alone and does not need an separate interface like the other sprinkler controllers.
    JOHN -- arvada, CO   8/2/2013
    Works great. I'm in control now, not just the timer.
    Rainman -- Omaha   6/1/2013
    Why have a product picture with a pass thru outlet that does not exist on the units you ship? Really, how hard is that to fix?
    PAUL -- alamo, CA   5/22/2013
    Hard to rate when the Insteon Hub does not work with this device yet. This is very frustrating since I got the hub in part for the sprinkler control. I do not know whose fault this is. But I am hoping this will be fixed soon.
    ELLIOT -- davis, CA   5/10/2013
    The sprinkler controller is working great! I am using it with HouseLinc. It was difficult to figure out how to make them work together. All the Insteon instructions are just on how to link it to a keypad or button. With some serious digging in the Insteon user forum, I was able to figure out how to get it linked, and how to send custom commands to it using the "Custom" icon in the event dialog. I would have given it a 5-star rating if this had actually been documented somewhere.
    Chad E Shriver -- United States   5/4/2013
    Bought two and so far have had them for a year they both worked great all last summer but this spring when I reactivated my sprinkler system on has apparently failed and will not link up with my isy99 no matter what I do and apparently has one of the sprinkler circuits stuck on so I disconnected the transformer and will try to contact customer service when able.
    Jeffrey -- United States   3/18/2013
    Why is it this thing can only operate one sprinkler at a time?
    Jeffrey -- United States   3/17/2013
    Documentation leaves something to be desired. Not completely useless but this thing out to have a whole lot more instructions.
