Simplehomenet announces improved EZRain Irrigation Controller

New firmware expected to simplify use of the EZRain

LAGUNA NIGUEL, CA - October 10, 2007 - Today Simplehomenet announced immediate availability of the improved EZRain irrigation controller.

About the EZRain Irrigation Controller
The EZRain is an 8 -zone irrigation controller capable of managing valves either individually, or in program sequences in response to INSTEON or X10 commands. EZRain stores separate timers to prevent a valve to be left ON indefinitely, and for valve timing of up to four independent irrigation programs. Although a PC/controller is needed to program its timers, independent or sequenced valve control can be initiated by commands from an INSTEON controller such as ControlLinc or KeyPadLinc, or direct INSTEON or X10 messages from a PC or other controllers. Once triggered, EZRain carries out valve timing and sequencing independently.
EZRain has a built -in power line interface for programming and control, and requires only a 24VAC irrigation transformer to power the valves.
INSTEON and X10 compatibility means virtually unlimited connectivity, including wireless networks and the Internet.
