Connecting multiple EtherRain's
« on: June 28, 2010, 11:48:13 pm »
Hi Jim,

So I've got a network cable going out to my sprinkler room now.  One end of the network cable plugs into my switch, the other into the EtherRain device. 

I'll probably add a few more zones later this summer, so I'll need another EtherRain device.  So to connect two EtherRain devices in my sprinkler room, could I plug the network cable into a 4 port hub, then plug the EtherRain devices into the hub?  Or do I need to run a 2nd network cable out to the sprinkler room?

Thanks, 

Jim

Hi Gangee,

Yes you can plug the Ethernet cable into  a 4 or 8 port switch located in your sprinkler room and then plug multiple EtherRain controllers into that switch.
