Simple and rapid installation
Memorizes up to 4 program sequences which are then recalled via a single INSTEON or X-10 command
Drives standard 24VAC sprinkler valves
Output #8 (normally on valve 8) may be programmed to drive an auxilliary pump. This pump would go ON anytime any of the irrigation valves are ON
Acts as a repeater of powerline INSTEON signals
2-way communications for high reliability
Pass-through outlet may be used for 24VAC valve transformer or other appliances
1-year warranty by SimpleHomeNet
Supported by an ever-growing list of home automation applications from third parties:
Your EZFlora is an 8-zone irrigation unit capable of controlling valves either individually, or in program sequences in response to single INSTEON or X10 commands. Separate timers are stored by EZFlora to prevent a valve to be left ON indefinitely, and for valve timing of up to four independent irrigation programs. EZFlora depends on an external PC/controller for programming its timers, and to initiate independent or sequenced valve control. Once triggered, EZFlora carries out valve timing and sequencing independently.
EZFlora has a built-in power line interface and requires only a 24VAC irrigation transformer to power the valves. Programming and control of EZFlora is done through the power line.
INSTEON and X10 compatibility means virtually unlimited connectivity,
including wireless networks and the Internet.
EZFlora is easy to install and operate, requiring only an external 24VAC transformer that can be conveniently attached to the pass-thru outlet. Please refer to the quick-setup guide that comes with your EZFlora for detailed installation instructions. This quick-guide is also available from the free downloads section.
Should one desire to run EZFlora without a third party home automation system such as the ISY-994i, the EZFlora configuration and set-up utility can be downloaded from SmartEnIT. This is a program that runs under MS-Windows and allows you to use™an INSTEON PLC to communicate with EZFlora affording the following:
- Verification of INSTEON EZFlora communications
- Quick EZFlora diagnostics for confirmation of operation
- Set up the EZFlora built-in default and program timers for valve run duration times
- Set up of timers, resident in the PLC for triggering programs or individual valves at specific times of the week. Once programmed, the PLC can run unattended without a PC
