    Does anyone have a recommendation for a remote to use with the Rainbird ESP-4M controller? The Rainbird site shows a RMX-1 Multi-function remote which looks pretty good, but my local distributor indicates that this remote is discontinued and Rainbird will be selling a new one in 4-5 months.

    Distributor indicates (and it makes sense) that the RMX-1 does not have a LED readout on the remote to let you know what you are pressing.

    Do other brands or generic remotes work with the ESP-4M?

    We use the Hunter SRR remote and jumper wires to work on systems with other brand controllers. Works great for us but it takes a few minutes to hook the jumpers to their zone wires.
