Wireless Solar Sync: Troubleshooting
Right-click on the video format below and select Save As...
This video helps identify and troubleshoot common issues that may arise when installing and setting up a Hunter Wireless Solar Sync® sensor. Your sensor may not be communicating correctly if the controller displays a sensor off message or the sprinkler system does not shut off during a rain or freeze event.
Learn to mount the sensor in direct sunlight in order to get the best weather data, set your seasonal adjustment with run times, and confirm communication between the weather sensor and irrigation controller. Common mistakes include keeping the sensor bypass switch on bypass or failing to remove the chrome jumper tab across the two sensor terminals. Addressing the receiver back to the controller can solve communication issues as well.
