TBOS Series Battery-Operated Bluetooth Controllers

Commercial Control for Battery-Powered Systems

The TBOS-BT & TBOS-BT-LT 9V battery controllers provide commercial-level irrigation control that you can program with your smartphone via the free Rain Bird mobile app. Eliminate the need to access the valve box and install this controller in highway medians, roundabouts, or anywhere you need irrigation control but do not have AC power.  

The vandal-proof case makes it ideal for public or high foot traffic areas. With the Rain Bird app you can create flexible schedules that automatically adjust for the season and have multiple programs and start times.
