Weather Sensor Installation

• Press the


key (three times) to return to the Home screen.

After a brief time, the current temperature, watering history

graph line, and signal-strength bars will be displayed.

Note: A single Weather Sensor can be paired to multiple Receiver

Modules when additional Climate Logic systems are installed

within reception range.

2. The Rain Sensor default threshold is 1/4” (6 mm) of accumulated

rainfall (nominal). The threshold can be lowered to 1/8” (3 mm) or

raised to 1/2” (12 mm), or 3/4” (19 mm) as preferred. Prior to install-

ing the Weather Sensor, adjust the threshold to the preferred setting as follows:

Note: Increasing the threshold extends the length of time required for the Weather Sensor to signal the

Receiver Module to stop irrigation, as well as extending the dry-out period before scheduled watering can

resume. In areas where heavy fog, mist or high humidity is common, the 1/8” (3 mm) setting is not recom-

mended due to the increased sensitivity to moisture.

• Turn the Rain Sensor cap slightly, releasing it from the

retention pins, allowing the cap to move vertically.

• Turn the cap to engage the retention pins at the preferred

slot position.

Important: The Weather Sensor must have full exposure to sun, wind and rain, and must not be installed

inside a rain gutter, or in any location where immersion, runoff, or contact with irrigation spray will occur.

Avoid installation near a heat source, such as a heater vent or chimney. Wooden surfaces are preferred

to concrete or asphalt shingles to reduce reflected heat. Installation over a planted area is preferred to a

driveway, walkway etc. Avoid installation near any large metal structure, or high current-draw equipment

that can cause signal interference. Ensure the antenna wire hangs vertically without contact.
