Hunter WSS Wireless
Solar Sync Sensor Kit
Wireless Solar Sync for use with PCC and Pro-C 300 controllers. Includes Wireless Solar Sync Sensor, Wireless receiver, and module. Wireless full kit with Sensor and Module. Compatible with Hunter Pro-C, PCC, ICC and I-Core Controllers / Timers. The Solar Sync continually gathers on-site solar and temperature data used in the calculation of evapotranspiration (ET), then determines watering requirements. The Module automatically calculates water requirements and makes adjustments taking into account your regional weather characteristics. Air temperature is monitored and used to calculate watering requirements. Too hot? Solar Sync knows to be efficient and waters your lawn as needed. Freezing morning? Keep those mittens off, because below 37° F, Solar Sync smartly waits for warmer temperatures. Passing showers require a sensor that can react quickly. The built-in "Quick Response®" feature does just that. For soaking showers, the adjustable Rain-Clik® sensor ensures your lawn isn't watered unnecessarily. Let the sunshine in. The solar sensor measures the sun's rays to keep your lawn at peak performance with optimal watering.

My sensor is mounted about fifty feet from the receiver. Passes through a wood frame wall with plaster exterior and an interior wood frame wall with sheetrock. Have not had any problems.
Hope this helps.
I have the Hunter WSS Solar Sync kit on my system since August 2012. It is wired to a Hunter Pro-C (PC) Controller, circa 2003. I don't have the Hunter Remote kit installed. I thought abut it but never got around to it. I notice the remote kit harness will use the same three 24 volt connections and the remote sensor connects the harness, which activates the system. The WSS is also connects to the two Rain Sensors inputs on the controller, which deactivates the system. It can be controlled by the by-pass switch. The only issue I see is when the WSS senses that there is enough water, it may not let you remotely run the system. I hope this helps. Joel
I have installed and used this unit on a PC series controller and have been quite satisfied with it. Once installed you adjust all stations for the amount of water needed for the month of July, select your zone according to the manual, and it will adjust all stations up or down from 0 to 100 % as needed. It also shuts controller down during a freeze or rain conditions.
According to the Hunter website, this kit does work in the x core series. On the PC series you attach the wires from the receive module to the power and Acc. terminals. All clearly outlined in the installation manual.
Please show a schematic of how this operates in line. Also,
If i set the program on the PCC300, does this just adjust that program or does it create a whole new "smart" program?
My controller is mounted inside on a conventual sheetrocked & insulated wall with plywood, styrofoam & stucco covering exterior. The transmitter is mounted on an eave 35' from the reciever's location. It works fine. I didn't want to buy a concrete drill bit to pierce the stucco nor have the wiring showing on the exterior. If your building is concrete block, I would sure try it.
