Step 1. Replace Your Old Controller
Take a picture of your current wiring. This will help you identify the correct sequence of wires.
- Master Valve - Optional
- Zones - Wires are Connected to Zone Valves
- Common Wire or Ground Wire
- Rain Sensor - Optional
Disconnect your old controller and remove sprinkler wires. Adhere a numeric labeling sticker to tag each associated wire for easy identification.
Remove your old controller from the wall.
Step 2. Install Your Yardian Controller
Identify an appropriate spot to mount your Yardian so that the camera is able to view your designated location (e.g., inside the garage).
Open the top cover.
Mark the wall for the screws. Mount the Yardian with the screws.
Open the inside cover.
Connect sprinkler wires according to the corresponding labels.
Note: Please specify rain sensor type (normally open or closed) in Yardian app if applicable.
Note: If you have a master valve, connect it to any zone and specify it in Yardian app.
Close the inside cover and the top cover.
Note: Please make sure you hear a click sound by pressing at the top of the inside cover.
Plug the Yardian electrical cord into the home outlet.
Software may be updated when Yardian is connected to the Internet. Please DO NOT turn off the power when the LED is blinking RED. Interrupting the software update process may result in system malfunction.
