This video shows how to use the remote control unit with an Irritrol controller and also how to use a wiring harness to connect it to any brand controller. This setup requires the Irritrol remote control modules and an Irritrol RD-xxx controller. I build a little adapter that allows you to clip into any system.
This is a quicktime video that shows the basic setup and how to hook it up. The wiring harness basically connects to the ribbon cable and wires up both 24VAC wires, and one of the sprinkler valves (In this case valve 6). I used an IDE connector from some old PC scraps I have around, otherwise, you can order the mating connector.
