Connecting Valve Wires
Steps:
1.
If this is a replacement installation, first remove the old Sprinkler Control System,
and attach the IC to the wall. Make sure the valve cables can reach the IC.
2.
Identify the common cable and connect it to the “com” output.
3.
Connect valves 1 through 10, to the corresponding outputs on the IC
4.
If your installation includes a master valve, connect the master valve to output
#11 (“11 | MV”).
5.
Connect the power cable to the IC using the “AC1” “AC2” (B) outputs using the
connector provided.
6.
Plug the wall transformer to a power outlet.
7.
The IC should now be installed, and ready to be configured.

Connecting to the Network
When you first apply power to the IC, the IC will boot up and create an AdHoc WiFi network
called “IrrigationCaddyAP”.
This AdHoc network will allow you to gain access to the unit, and configure it so that you
can connect it to your own WiFi network ( Router ). To access the unit execute the following
steps:
Steps:
1.
2.
Make sure the unit is plugged in.
Connect your computer to the newly created “IrrigationCaddyAP” AdHoc
network.
On Windows 7:
a. Click on the network icon on the taskbar
b.
Find the “IrrigationCaddyAP” network, open it, and click on “Connect”.
If “IrrigationCaddyAP” does not show right away, wait a few seconds
until it shows up. You might have to repeat step 2.a to refresh the networks.

c.
Once you have connected, open a web browser and navigate to
http://169.254.1.1 (You might have to wait up to 30 seconds before you are
able to access the page after connecting to “IrrigationCaddyAP”.
Refresh the page until it connects)
On MAC OS X:

The IC will then display a reconnection message, and it will reboot. When the IC
reboots it will try to reconnect to the new network just selected. Now you need to
connect your laptop/PC/portable device to reconnect to the new network so that
you can access the IC in the new network.
9.
To go back to the original network once again click on the network icon on the
taskbar, and select your preferred network.

Connecting Expansion Modules
The IC-W1 zone capacity can be expanded to up to 43 zones by adding expansion
modules (EXP-800). The expansion modules connect into the “Expansion Port” for the ICW1.
Up to 4 expansion modules can be used by adding an expansion module hub (H-500).
