RainMachine Switch

The rainmachine switch platform allows you to control programs and zones within a RainMachine smart Wi-Fi sprinkler controller.

You must have the RainMachine component configured to use this platform. After configuring that component, switches will automatically appear.

Controlling Your Device

After Home Assistant loads, new switches will be added for every enabled program and zone. These work as expected:

  • Program On/Off: starts/stops a program
  • Zone On/Off: starts/stops a zone (using the zone_run_time parameter to determine how long to run for)

Programs and zones are linked. While a program is running, you will see both the program and zone switches turned on; turning either one off will turn the other one off (just like in the web app).
