ESP-TM2 Series Controllers

Simple, Flexible and Reliable for Residential Applications

The ESP-TM2 irrigation controller is the perfect option for basic residential solutions. Building upon Rain Bird’s legacy of The Intelligent Use of Water®, this controller offers simple water saving features that you will actually use.

With the flexibility of 3 programs and 4 start times available per program, you can tailor your watering schedule to your landscape’s needs.

The ESP-TM2 provides the Extra Simple Programming interface you are familiar with in a controller that is built to last!

Best of all, you can upgrade the ESP-TM2 into a WiFi-enabled controller by simply installing a new LNK2 WiFi Module, without having to replace the entire unit.

Make your controller SMART with EPA WaterSense certification by adding the LNK2 WiFi module and a WR2 rain sensor.
