ESP-SMT Smart Control System
Proving that extra smart can also be extra simple.
Smart Technology has reached its tipping point.
Other Smart Controllers claim simplicity and precision; the Rain Bird® ESP-SMT
Smart Control System delivers. Combining the proven simplicity of the Extra
Simple Programming (ESP) controller family with the accuracy of weather-based
control, this innovative system is engineered to save valuable time, money
and water.
The ease and speed with which you can program a site is remarkable. Simply
input a few key specifics, such as zip code, allowed watering days and the
plant/soil type for each zone; the ESP-SMT does the rest. Your installation time is
cut dramatically. Your site’s irrigation system waters only when the landscape
requires it. And your customers save 30-70 percent in water.
“The ESP-SMT is very user-friendly.
Everyone loves the ease of
programming, from the employees
who install it to the homeowners
who use it.”
—Clark Gomez, President,
Gomez Landscaping, Mapleton, UT
now is the time
With mounting regulations and severe droughts in many regions of the country,
the days when water inefficiency was overlooked are long gone. The future
promises even more restrictions for the irrigation industry. But along with these
challenges come opportunities. Many states and municipalities are offering
valuable rebates to help make Smart Technology more profitable.

Never has the need for Smart Technology been greater. And never has Smart
Technology been more accurate or marketable than with the Rain Bird ESP-SMT
Smart Control System.
The proven accuracy of weather-based scheduling
In designing the ESP-SMT, we’ve simply reduced the cost and
complexity of the weather-based control systems we began
pioneering for golf courses over 25 years ago. Drawing on the
industry-leading precision of these larger, more sophisticated
units, the ESP-SMT makes Rain Bird weather-based control
affordable for homeowners—once and for all.
instant rainfall shut-off and useable measurement
A Smart Controller should be smart enough to account for
rainfall, right? Not always. In fact, most Smart Controllers
simply suspend irrigation during rain events, without
accurately measuring rainfall. By comparison, the ESP-SMT
not only suspends irrigation, it measures instantaneous
rainfall data, determining effective rainfall and calculating
a net replacement value. The ESP-SMT knows exactly
how much to adjust your watering schedule, preventing
under- or over-watering.
The ESP-SMT’s tipping rain bucket
measures rainfall, accounting for
effective rainfall, in order to prevent
under- or over-irrigation.
Zone-specific water calculations
Cool Season Grass Variety
Warm Season Grass Variety
Basing calculations on factors such as plant type, the ESP-SMT meets the
unique watering requirements of each zone in your landscape.
Different plants have different watering requirements.
That’s why the ESP-SMT customizes each zone’s irrigation
schedule. When calculating an accurate ET value for each
zone, it factors in location, soil type, landscape slope, plant
type/density, sun exposure, sprinkler type and root-depth
requirements. Based on this zone-specific data, the ESP-SMT
controller engine optimizes the irrigation schedule to
promote lush, healthy plant material in each station, while
substantially reducing water waste and runoff.
The precision of weather-based scheduling.
Easy to install
In minutes, the ESP-SMT controller
chassis and panel mount to an
exterior or interior wall. For easy
upgrades, the ESP-SMT panel can
also be mounted to an existing
ESP-Modular chassis. Installing
virtually anywhere within 200 feet
of the chassis and panel, the ESP-SMT outdoor weather sensor
and adjustable, heavy-duty mounting bracket are easily wired to
the controller using two quick-connect terminals.
Easy to operate
Building on the simple
design of the ESPModular, the ESP-SMT
features a familiar set-up
dial and large back-lit
display. Programming
the ESP-SMT is fast and
intuitive, thanks to easyto-follow prompts, minimal dial positions, and English or
Spanish language options. Once you’ve entered your general
and zone-specific information, your work is done; the ESP-SMT
does the scheduling for you based on weather data.
Easy to sell
The ESP-SMT practically sells itself to homeowners. By selfadjusting to the landscape’s changing water needs, it eliminates
the programming errors and guesswork of a time-based system.
By watering only when necessary, it passes up to a 30-70 percent
water savings to your customers. And by supporting the ESP-SMT
with a host of training and marketing resources, we’ve made the
easiest choice in Smart Technology even easier.
