Cyber-Rain Sprinkler System

rakstar:
Has anyone heard of Cyber-Rain (http://www.cyber-rain.com)?  Unfortunately, it's not z-wave compatible (it uses 802.15.4), but it would be nice if Vera can emulate what their software does.  According to their site, sprinklers turn on/off based on weather conditions in your area -- info is pulled off of the internet.

...then again, I can't seem to find any z-wave irrigation controllers (I've seen some X10 ones)... does anyone know of any?

micasaverde:
When we get the LUA-based scripting engine built-in, this will be a great add-on.  With the LUA engine, users can add their own plugins and share them.

Mark H.:
Sounds promising.
Nice Android App! I wish Canada would get the Android!  :-[

Any word on what devices might work here?  Have to install a sprinkler zone next week and it would be good to get something that can be controlled by Vera in the future...

I'm getting my irrigation controller this week (still in customs) - so I hope to get it work with Vera quickly.

As for cyber-rain, I'm not sure how hackable it is, but this thing http://www.adafruit.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=29&products_id=128 is 802.15.4 and can be connected via RS232 or USB. If they didn't do some explicit protection you might be able to control it with Vera quiet easely.

EDIT: just received the controller :)
