Hunter Solar Sync Weather Sensors

Hunter Solar Sync Weather Sensors

Hunter's new Solar Sync Technology takes weather-based irrigation control to a new level. It's no longer just a matter of shutting off the system when you've had a bit of rain, now it's about efficient, smart watering.

It's easy to install & once it is, your Hunter controller will automatically adjust watering for increased water efficiency.

So how does it work? The Hunter Solar Sync has 3 ingenious features that ensure water gets to your garden only when it should:

  1. Quick ResponseTM reacts quickly to any passing shower,
  2. RainClikTM makes sure your system doesn't switch on after a soaking downpour,
  3. The Solar Sensor measures the suns rays & air temperature to keep your lawn & garden at peak performance with optimal watering.

These sensors are compatible with Hunter controllers (look for "compatible with Solar Sync" indicator). X-Core & ACC only require the sensor. ICC, Pro C & I-Core require the Solar Sync Module.

  • The main safety concern is regarding the water supply. To avoid contamination of the mains water upstream, in most municipalities, a Dual Check Valve is required at the water connection.

  • In rare applications, like on a wall under a well covered patio where the space is 100% dry all the time & not exposed to the sun, an indoor controller will continue to operate without issue. But if you’re not sure, we recommend installing an outdoor model. If something does go wrong with your controller due to water damage or the LCD screen failing from sun exposure, the warranty is voided so it’s not worth the risk.

  • A garden tap is an excellent place to connect your irrigation system. Ideally, install a connection point behind the tap (turn the water off first) so you can still use your tap to fill a bucket when you need to.

  • Yes, irrigation controllers typically have a manual function, this will allow you to both operate all zones, or each one individually as you please.

  • No, unless you’re tapping into your water supply, a plumber isn’t required. Most domestic irrigation systems can be installed by anyone half handy.

  • In some states a rain sensor is mandatory, but regardless it’s something you should include in your irrigation system. Having your system turn on in the middle of a day of rain is not only embarrassing, it’s a terrible waste of water & the overwatering is bad for your garden!

  • Well you’re in the right place! We’ve got it all here. The first step, is drawing out a plan of your garden, to scale of course. We’ve got Grid Paper in our Product Guides & all the advice you’ll need in there too!

  • We get any number of calls from people across the country who've bought from overseas & have problems. From electrical output problems to thread compatibility problems & other problems that we aren't able to help with!

    By buying from SunshowerOnline, right here in Australia, you can be sure that your warranty issues are covered, that compatibility & compliance isn't an issue & that you'll be able to get helpful after service advice. 

  • Domestic irrigation controllers will always operate zones one at a time. Even if you try to operate 2 to come on at the same time, the controller will automatically delay the operation of the second zone until after the first zone has finished running.
