Automatically delay any watering cycles while the music is on.

Rachio Control4 Driver and URC Module

The perfect companion to the Rachio hardware, our Control4 driver is bi-directional, offering you independent control over zones as well as feedback as to the status of the current watering cycle so you can make intelligent programming decisions to further enhance your client's environment. 

  • Works with both GEN1 and GEN2 Rachio Iro controllers
  • Manually control zones from Control4 touchscreens
  • View current zone status
  • Rain Delay
  • Turn device on and off
  • Pause and resume schedule e.g 
    • If music is playing in the back yard, automatically enable a raid delay so the sprinklers don’t turn on.
    • You're having guests over for a picnic and do not want the system to resume until 10pm.
    • Garden vegetables need to be watered at the same time each day but you are away from home during this time.
  • Automate events in your house based on the sprinkler system or vice versa
