We believe in the Intelligent Use of Water™ and in our responsibility to develop products and technologies that use water efficiently. The ESP-Me is no exception. Building on Rain Bird’s legendary Extra Simple Programming, the ESP-Me controller offers a broad range of water saving features that are so easy to use... you’ll actually use them.
Tailored Watering Schedules
Extra Simple Programming makes it easy for you to meet each landscape’s unique needs.
The ESP-Me can do it all, saving you valuable time and labor. The scalability of the ESP-Me and the choice of installing either 3- or 6-station modules mean more flexibility for any landscape.
Is Mother Nature doing the watering for you? Are you having a party and want to make sure the landscape is dry? Easily postpone irrigation for up to 14 days. Normal irrigation will resume automatically.
Bypass Rain Sensor by Station
Got a landscaped area under an eave or deck? Bypass the rain sensor for that station(s)—or for the entire landscape.
Seasonal Adjust by Program
When the seasons change, change with them. Reduce watering down to as little as 5% of your scheduled program times or increase it up to 200%. Apply to all programs or to each program individually.
Total Run Time Calculator by Program
Calculate the specific amount of time the controller is scheduled to run for a given program. Use it to ensure morning watering is finished before the family wakes up, or reduce your run time to comply with water restrictions.
Short Detect/Programming Errors
The ESP-Me visually notifies you of electrical and programming issues with a bright red LED and scrolling messages across the LCD display.
Need an easy way to turn on the system? The ESP-Me offers one-touch watering. With the dial in the AUTO position, just press and hold the right teardrop arrow button.
Simply save your programs after setup. If the original watering schedule is overwritten in error, easily restore it in just two steps.
User-Friendly Rain Bird Design
Featuring vibrant colors, an intuitive dial and a bright LCD display, the new ESP-Me is easy on the eyes. And with legendary Extra Simple Programming and the Rain Bird reliability you trust, it’s the same easy setup, just better.
