X2™ CONTROLLER - Sensor Programming

A Hunter MINI-CLIK®, FREEZE-CLIK®, or RAIN-CLIK™ sensor can be connected to your X2 controller. The purpose of this sensor is to stop watering when weather conditions occur.  Irritation will resume the automatic schedule when the switch closes again following these events.  For CLIK sensor options for the X2 controller, please visit the product section here.  The Hydrawise software supports standard open/closed contact rain sensors and soil moisture sensors. 

These sensors use two wires and are usually labeled as normally open (sometimes called NO) or normally closed (sometimes called NC).  

NOTE:The most commonly only used sensor types are normally closed circuit-style sensors.  Flow meters are not compatible with the X2 controller.
