  • + Product Description

    The Rain Bird TBOS-BT Battery Controllers provides a commercial-level irrigation control that you can program with your smartphone via the free Rain Bird mobile app. Install the controller in garden, landscaped gardens, lawn edging or anywhere you need irrigation control but do not have AC power.

    The vandal-proof case makes it ideal for public or high foot traffic areas. With the Rain Bird app you can create flexible schedules that automatically adjust for the season and have multiple programs and start times.

    The TBOS comes in different models depending upon how many solenoid valves you need to operate within the valve
    box. The actual unit does not have any buttons or screen on it; everything is done from your phone app.
    This is a commercial grade battery controller with multiple features to make your life easier and put the right amount
    of water on, when you want it. You can even seasonally adjust each solenoid station. It is great for large landscape
    systems, and because you don’t need to visit the actual controller, it’s also perfect for those hard-to-reach places
    such as roof gardens and large planted borders.
    Please note that the solenoid valves must be fitted with 9-volt DC latching solenoid coils on them. This is not the
    normal coil for an irrigation system so be aware of the difference; you can either purchase solenoid valves with the 9
    volt latching coils already on them, or if you already have a standard 24-vac valve you can purchase a replacement
    9-volt DC coil.
    Incidentally this controller can operate any sized Rain Bird solenoid valve; 1” diameter is standard but there’s nothing
    stopping you from connecting it to a 1½” or even 2” solenoid valve if you need the extra flow rate. This makes it
    handy for larger watering systems that don’t have accessible mains power (or solenoid cables installed).
