I have an existing sprinkler system installed… 7 zones, hunter pro c powering it.
I ust came across this project and was going to buy OpenSprinkler v2.1s (assembled), but I am trying to find out how this physically integrates… and if I need to buy any additional hardware, than just the assembled unit.
OpenSprinkler 2.1 is designed to be a drop-in replacement of your existing sprinkler controller. The package includes the sprinkler controller with terminal blocks. What you need additionally are:
– 24V AC transformer (you can reuse your existing hunter transformer)
– Sprinkler valves (which you already have since you have an existing sprinkler setup)
– Option to connect OpenSprinkler to your router (any of the choices below):
Ethernet cable is the simplest (connect OpenSprinkler directly to your router)[/*:356g50s5]
