Rain Bird Switch


This rainbird switch platform allows interacting with LNK WiFi module of the Rain Bird Irrigation system in Home Assistant.

Configuration

Once you have enabled the Rain Bird component, add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

switch:
  - platform: rainbird
    switches:
      sprinkler_1:
        zone: 1
        friendly_name: "Front sprinklers"
        trigger_time: 10
        scan_interval: 10
      sprinkler_2:
        friendly_name: "Back sprinklers"
        zone: 2
        trigger_time: 20
        scan_interval: 10

Configuration variables:

  • zone (Required): Station zone identifier.
  • friendly_name (Optional): Just a friendly name for the station.
  • trigger_time (Required): The default duration to sprinkle the zone.
  • scan_interval (Optional): How fast to refresh the switch.

Please note that due to the implementation of the API within the LNK Module, there is a concurrency issue. For example, the Rain Bird app will give connection issues (like already a connection active).
