Cyber-Rain XCI Waters Your Lawn When The Internet Commands It

Illustration for article titled Cyber-Rain XCI Waters Your Lawn When The Internet Commands It

I love green technology, especially when it doesn't involve me lifting so much as a finger. With the Cyber-Rain XCI, you can take control of your sprinkler system across eight zones and help conserve water and a little cash at the same time. Via a wireless connection with your PC, the Cyber-Rain can make adjustments to scheduled watering times using current weather data.


If the forecast looks like rain, the unit is smart enough to suspend operations. It can even optimize its schedule based on the changing seasons. And the best part is that it isn't as expensive as you might expect. If you already have an irrigation system in place, Cyber-Rain can be added for only $349. So it may actually pay for itself in a short amount of time. [Product Page via GTW via Sci Fi Tech]


Denver is too damn high

Heck yeah we do. I just put in a sprinkler system this year with an orbitz touch screen controller. Funny I actually considered how cool it would be to tie the schedule in with temperature, weather, sunlight differences through the season. You need to give each zone a factor related to exposer and what you are watering (plants vs lawn) but, this is right on target, Great idea!
