Rain Bird - Wireless Rain-Freeze Combo


SKU: WR2RFC
  • The Rain Bird Wireless Rain Sensor is designed for 24 VAC residential and commercial irrigation systems. 
  • This high-quality product saves water and extends irrigation system life by automatically sensing precipitation and interrupting irrigation during rain and low temperature events. 
  • Programming logic can suspend irrigation using the “Quick Shut Off” feature or when the amount of rainfall exceeds the rainfall set point. 
  • Enhanced antenna array provides superior signal reliability that overcomes most line-of-sight obstructions
  • Sensor signal strength indicator enables one person set up, reducing installation time

Rain and rain/freeze sensors are becoming "must have" components for irrigation systems these days. Rain Bird designed the new WR2 wireless sensor to exceed the standard. With revolutionary features, this sensor saves time, improves system performance and enhances your reputation as a water management expert.

Reliable signal transmission and other innovations deliver superior responsiveness to rainfall and cold temperatures, while user-friendly features cut installation and programming time in half. Choose your own rainfall set points and save up to 35% on water usage while promoting lush, beautiful landscapes.

Installs faster with one-person:
Rain Bird designed the WR2 so that one person can install it quickly and easily. Signal strength is displayed on both the sensor unit and the controller interface. The sensor's innovative versatile mounting bracket quickly attaches securely to a gutter or any vertical surface, such as a fence or wall.

Easier to use and program:
Programming the WR2 is simplified for fast set-up. In just a few seconds, you can select set points, program the irrigation modes and save your default. On the controller interface, all settings are displayed on the easy-to-read LCD screen, so you can see signal strength, rain and temperature set points, battery life and more at a glance. Unlike other rain sensors, the WR2 has a long-lasting battery that's quick and easy to replace.

Superior signal reliability:
Signal strength is displayed on the controller interface using familiar cell phone icons. Dual antennas safeguard the system from signal interference by radios, mobile phones, power lines, etc. The WR2 system overcomes most line-of-sight obstructions so you have freedom in locating the sensor. Weather data is updated every 45 seconds to ensure the most reliable communication between sensor and controller.
