Example of map image with zones enabled

The image entity is disabled by default. The image entity will plot the current coordinates and location history of the mower on a user provided image. To configure the entity you need to upload your desired map image and determine the coordinates of the top left corner and the bottom right corner of your selected image.

The image entity is configured via the configure option on the integration. To enter the coordinates, ensure that they are in Signed Degree format and separated by a comma for example 40.689209.74.044661

husqvarna, automower, installation, install, simple

You can then provide the path to the image you would like to use for the map and mower. This has been tested with the PNG format, other formats may work. The. /resources/map_image.png default image is over written when the integration is updated, store the custom image in another location.

The path color can be changes by providing an RGB value such as (255,0,0).

The optional zone sensor allows zones to be designated by coordinates, this sensor will then return the name of the zone the mower is currently located.

To create a Zone, select new then enter a name for the zone and the coordinates of the zone. Coordinates are entered in Signed Degree format with latitude and longitude separated by a comma and each coordinate separated by a semi colon. You must enter at least three coordinates to define a zone. For example: 40.689209.74.044661; 40.689210.74.044652; 40.689211.74.044655 You must select save and then submit, exiting the flow in another manner will cause any entered zones to be lost.

If display zone is selected the zone will be drawn as an overlay on the map image in the provided RGB color. To change the color provide an RGB string such as (255,255,255).

If a Home Zone is set, the sensor will return Home and the image will display the mower at the home location, when the mower is charging or at the docking station.

Follow These Steps to Get Your Automower Running!

So, you purchased a Husqvarna Automower. Good choice! The nifty robot mower is about to simplify your life in so many ways!

But before that can happen, you need to install it. Fortunately, Husqvarna has made this process extremely easy by designing a user-friendly product!

Still, to get the most out of your mower, you need to follow the right steps. And we can help you with that! Our team at Automated Outdoor Solutions has been installing Automowers for many years now. And we’re happy to lend you our expertise.

We’ve pooled our knowledge to put together this guide on how to install Husqvarna Automower. By following the seven simple steps listed below, you will have your mower up and running very soon.

husqvarna, automower, installation, install, simple

Ready for automated lawncare? Let’s get started!

Step 1: Unbox the Automower

Before installing the mower, let’s take a look at everything that comes with it in the box. When you open the box, you will find the following:

  • Cardboard Ruler – You will find this inserted at the top of the box. It will help you measure distances for the boundary wire.
  • Charging Station – Not only does this charge the mower, but it also sends signals to the guide and boundary wires.
  • Power Cord – This cord will power the charging station by connecting to an electrical outlet.
  • Long Ground Screws and Allen Wrench – These are for securing the charging station to the ground.
  • Replacement Blades and Screws – Use these when your Automower blades start to dull.
  • Boundary and Guide Wires – These wires communicate with the mower to keep it within the bounds of your property and help it get back to the charging station.
  • Staples – Use these to secure the boundary and guide wires to the ground.
  • Connectors – Use these to connect wires to the charging station.
  • Couplers – Use these to connect, repair and extend the wires.
  • Robotic Lawn Mower – There is a variety of different Automower models to choose from so that you can find the one that fits your yard perfectly!

The only tools you will need are a hammer for the staples and a wire cutter and pliers for the guide and boundary wires.

Step 2: Prepare Your Yard

You will need to install the charging station, guide wires and boundary wires around your yard. It’s important to make a plan before you do this for the best results.

You should survey your lawn and make a note of any obstacles you’ll want the mower to avoid. It’s important to make a note of these so that you’ll remember to lay the boundary wires around them. A professional installer can take care of mapping your lawn for you if you choose to go that route.

As you map out your yard, be sure to pick up any twigs and debris you come across since Automowers work best in a clean lawn.

We also recommend mowing your yard before installing the guide and boundary wires. By doing this, you will make it easier to lay the wires flat against the turf. Otherwise, if you leave a wire hanging too high in the air, the mower could cut it on accident. Remember, you can use multiple staples to make sure a wire is as close to the ground as possible if necessary.

Step 3: Position the Charging Station

Next, you’ll want to look for an ideal place for the charging station. The spot you choose should have plenty of shade, be relatively level and be near a power outlet. There also needs to be at least six feet of free space in front of the charging station for the mower to move.

Once you’ve chosen a spot for your charging station, place it there. Make sure the station lays flat on the ground, but don’t fix it to the spot yet. You will need to attach the boundary and guide wires first before securing the charger in place.

Once you’ve positioned the charger, plug it in and have it charge the mower. That way, the mower will be ready to start working once you’ve completed the following steps!

Step 4: Install the Boundary Wires

Next, using a hammer and staples, install the boundary wires along the edges of your lawn and around obstacles. A professional installer will use a tool to install the wire a couple of inches below the surface. But you can fix the wires above ground, and they will be overgrown and invisible within a few weeks. You can also use a spade to create a two-inch deep slit to lay the wire below ground. This method works well for uneven lawns.

If you use a hammer and staples, be sure to hammer the staples on level ground and place the staples about 28 inches away from each other.

Use the cardboard ruler to determine how far to lay the wire from the edges of your lawn. The ruler has three lengths marked on it. Here are some tips for when to use each length.

Longest Length

Use this length when you are laying wire by a boundary with a hard obstacle, such as a stone fence or a cement wall. Placing the wire this far away will keep the mower from getting damaged by running into the hard surface.

The mower will mow over the wire, but not far enough to collide with anything. Because of this, the grass right next to the hard surface may require trimming since the mower may not reach it.

Medium Length

This length is perfect for grass next to garden plots and gravel paths. It will allow the mower to mow the grass completely but prevent the mower from getting stuck on the mulch or gravel.

Shortest Length

Use this length for boundaries next to pavement. The mower will completely cut all the grass along the pavement’s edge and will have no trouble turning as it overlaps the hard surface.

Whatever distance on the ruler you choose, remember that you can always change it if you see it’s not working well.

Boundary Wire Islands

You can also lay boundary wires around obstacles in the middle of your yard that you don’t want the mower to impact. Husqvarna calls this “creating islands.”

To do this, lay a line of wire directly from the property’s edge to the obstacle. Then lay the wire around the obstacle, making sure the wire never crosses itself. Once you have made a full loop, lay the right next to the line of wire you made to get to the obstacle.

Automowers won’t detect the signal from the wires placed right next to each other and will mow right over them. But it will detect the portion of the wire surrounding the obstacle. So, in effect, you will have created a boundary wire island in the middle of your yard!

Dealing with Driveways

If a driveway splits your yard, you can lay the wire across it at an expansion joint and cover it with caulk. If your driveway doesn’t have expansion joints, you can also use a grinder to make a slit for the wire and cover it with caulk. The mower will have no trouble traveling over the driveway to get to the grass on the other side!

Step 5: Lay the Guide Wire

Once the boundary wires are in place, you will need to install the guide wire. This wire will help the mower find its way back to the charging station from anywhere in your yard.

Install five feet of guide wire straight in front of the charging station. From there, you should lay the wire straight across the longest section of your yard so that it intersects with a boundary wire at a perpendicular angle. Then use a wire cutter and a coupler to connect the boundary wire and the guide wire.

It’s also a good idea to lay the guide wire in narrow sections (smaller than 6.5 feet) of the lawn to help the mower find its way through those passages.

Laying the Boundary Wire

Step 6: Connect the Wires to the Charger

After you’ve installed the wires, you will need to connect the ends of the wires to the charging station.

Open the back of the charging station, and you will see four spots for the wires to connect. The right end of the boundary wire should go through the far-right opening and the left through the far-left opening. The two center openings are for your guide wires.

husqvarna, automower, installation, install, simple

To attach the ends of the wires, first measure how much wire you’ll need to attach to the contacts on the charging station. Then cut off any surplus wire you won’t need. Use pliers to attach each wire to a connector and connect it to the designated spot on the charger.

How to Install Husqvarna Automower® Robotic Lawn Mower

Once you’ve attached the wires, you can secure the charger to the ground with the long ground screws and Allen wrench.

Step 7: Start the Automower

Now everything is in place for your mower to get started. The only thing left is to give it the go-ahead!

Open the hatch on the back of the mower and follow the steps in the start-up wizard to start the mower. You’ll have to enter your four-digit pin to do this. If you’re not sure what this is, you can contact your dealer to get it. You can use the factory settings or set how often you would like it to mow different portions of your lawn. You can also set the time for how often the mower should mow.

We recommend setting the mower’s cutting height to maximum at first. Then, once the Automower has cut the whole lawn at this height, you can adjust to your desired height.

As the mower starts working, keep an eye on it to make sure it’s mowing how you want it to. Remember, you can always make adjustments as you go.

Sit Back and Enjoy a Perfect Lawn!

Congratulations! If you completed all the steps above, your Automower is busy mowing your lawn so that you don’t have to. You can enjoy perfectly mowed grass all summer long without breaking a sweat! Feels good, doesn’t it?

Of course, we also understand if you’d rather not install your Automower. That’s why we’re here! Our team of experts at Automated Outdoor Solutions would be happy to install your Automower for you. We offer free installation in Northern Illinois and Southern Wisconsin.

The best robotic lawn mowers for 2023

Like the look of robotic lawn mowers? Browse our pick of the very best, for gardens of all shapes and sizes.

Increasingly popular with UK gardeners, robotic lawn mowers are a welcome, hands-free alternative to traditional petrol and electric lawn mowers. Because a robotic lawn mower is fully automatic, it can be a brilliant option for gardeners who have mobility concerns, are away from home a lot, or simply find mowing a chore. Powered by rechargeable Lithium-ion batteries, most mowers are guided by a boundary cable laid around the edge of the lawn, which helps the robotic lawn mower identify where to mow and to avoid flower beds, trees and other obstacles.

While we tested models from a number of different brands, note that all of them offer a range of mowers with varying sizes, capabilities and features.

To compare these robotic models against other types of mowers, see our reviews of the best cordless lawn mowers, the best electric mowers and the best push mowers. And, if you’re looking to give your lawn a bit of TLC, our experts have tested a range of manual and powered aerators and scarifiers. check out the best scarifiers and best aerators reviews. You can also keep edges looking neat with our tests of the best strimmers or pick of the best lawn edging.

Husqvarna Automower 405X

RRP: From £1899.00

Our rating: 4.5 out of 5

  • Unobtrusive colour
  • Easy connectivity
  • Clever mowing features
  • GPS theft tracking

Awarded a BBC Gardeners’ World Magazine Best Buy for features, the Automower 405x boasts a huge range of features that help the mower cut well and make the experience easy for the user. These include, three different start points, switching mowing pattern according to where it’s mowing, such as through a narrow passage, frost guard and weather time that automatically adjusts the height according to the grass growth, and its new Rewilding Zone where you can leave 10% of the lawn aside to grow for pollinators.It’s available to buy as a bare mower, which is then installed by a dealer for an additional cost, or with the installation kit included and you install it yourself. Suitable for smaller gardens 600m2, the mower operates with both a boundary wire and a guide wire and unlike some other mowers, has a more flexible docking station, which doesn’t need a wide, clear space around it. ours was tucked neatly into the side of a hedge. It’s also easy to set up via the intuitive keypad or the impressive Automower Connect app, which allows you to change the schedule, adjust the height of cut, check on the mower’s progress and receive notifications, simply and quickly no matter where you are. As an X model, the mower also has a built in SIM so you have both remote and voice controlled control. Our only confusion with set up was working out the scheduling needed, which took a couple of weeks to establish, and that the height of cut on the app is listed as 1-9, when it cuts between 20mm and 50mm.The mower can cope with 40% slopes, which should suit most gardens. The slope in our test garden has a tendency to get muddy and slippery so at the installer’s advice, we used the spiked Terrain wheels which stop the wheels slipping. Only occasionally did the mower fail to get up the slope and when the weather was really wet we simply removed that zone from the work area. The mower cut consistently well and is very quiet, the only perceptible sound is the whirring of the blades as they cut. It occasionally missed spots on the lawn but overall this is a very easy to use and high performing mower.The Automower 405x is just one in a large range of Husqvarna mowers to suit different size lawns. A host of accessories are also available, including a cover for the docking station and wheel brushes, as well as spare parts, from batteries and blades to wheels. Both the mower and the battery come with a 2 year warranty.
