Hello all! Seasoned home automation geek here. I just redid my entire yard with an irrigation system, a well, and new sod. I am not happy with the current system that was installed for the irrigation system and have found my way to purchasing a Rachio 8-zone (Gen 2) device. I’m very excited to start up with it!
When trying to change out my system, I was getting stuck with the wiring, specifically for power. I read through the rachio support pages and couldn’t find anything specific to my situation.
My fundamental question is…how do I deal with the power? My hardware doesn’t seem to match anything I’ve seen online already. When disassembling my current system, I took pictures of each layer with my smart phone. The last little leg of the journey was the power. I came across this power transformer. What do I do with it? I searched online and couldn’t find anything so I just reassembled my current system again and wanted to post here to see if I could get any help/guidance. Could anyone give me advice on how to wire the power? Here is an album of pictures from my setup:
