Now that California is going through an El Niño season, it’s a great idea to invest in a smart rain sensor for your home or business. Because our spring season will be wetter than usual, you won’t have to water your lawn as often – but you’ll still want to be able to program your sprinklers just in case we have another dry spell. With a rain sprinkler for your system, you can set it and forget it. Your rain sensor will automatically turn off your sprinkler system if it has been raining, so you don’t have to worry about overwatering ever again. But what rain sensor is best for your lawn? Luckily, there is a wide variety of sensible options.
Rain Bird Wired and Wireless Rain Sensors
This wireless rain sensor detects rain as well as freezing temperatures. The wireless feature also means you can mount the unit in more places without worrying about unsightly wires.
This basic wired rain sensor is made up of sturdy UV-resistant materials that last through the toughest of weather. It also comes with different rain settings so you can pick the best one for your climate.
