Remote access to Rain Bird central control is as convenient as the Internet, with Rain Bird’s MI Series Mobile Controller software. This software runs on the central control computer to provide remote irrigation control via any web-enabled mobile device. Available in Advanced and Professional versions, users can activate sprinklers and programs; view which sprinklers and programs are running; review how much water they are using and how long they have been active.
Rain Bird MI FREEDOM Extended Commands*:
31 (Runtime Data): This command allows users to change default station run time as well as modify cycle and soak settings, water-budget settings and implement a “temporary station adjust” to any station in the field.
