My issue is Homeseer, Intuity, Wink, and others do not support all products on the market so you're pushed into products you either don't want or like for the sake of having them all "connected". Perhaps something exists but I gave up looking some time ago and my current setup works just fine.
You should think about ditching that rainbird and get the hunter hydrawise. Instead of only being able to access it locally you can access any where. Also has leak detection and uses weather instead of just a rain sensor, this allows it to be proactive instead of reactive.
