Helping Irrigation Professionals Take Control With New Software
Rain Bird is committed to helping irrigation professionals take control of the landscapes they manage, no matter how complex. Whether you work in city parks, corporate campuses, hotels, or golf courses, Rain Bird has the hardware and software you need.
Take Control With Rain Bird Products
Rain Bird makes water management easy with our Central Control platforms. Our most advanced system, the iQ4 platform, was introduced in 2020, and the team has continued to refine and optimize it. In the past year, the iQ4 product development team made over 70 enhancements to improve user experience, based on user feedback.
We consider the iQ4 platform to be the future of Central Control. “For years, our IQ Platform has been an ideal water management solution for HOAs, schools, parks and other sites that require flow sensing, have more than 22 stations, or require comprehensive water management across one or more controllers,” said Rick Malkin, Central Control product manager for Rain Bird. “Now with IQ4, we’re taking water management to the next level with full remote access, a modern user interface, streamlined navigation, and permission-based, tiered-user access.”
One of the key features of the iQ4 platform is iQ4-Cloud, a web-based app that allows for multi-user access from any web-enabled device. This means that users can adjust schedules or manually run programs while on-site, access reports from anywhere at any time, and manage all of their sites in one place. As with all Rain Bird products, iQ4 integrates with water use optimization tools like flow sensors and weather stations to ensure the Intelligent Use Of Water™.
Additionally, as part of our mission to make the work of irrigation professionals easier, we just released a new app called Rain Bird Resources, now available on the Apple App Store and Google Play. This app puts product details, specs, and technical support information right at users’ fingertips. Professionals can install and troubleshoot systems at the source without needing to carry around heavy books.
