Hi, it appears that the XR1 needs a companion transmitter such as the XT-1 or XT-4 in order to receive an input like that. The XT- unit will get the input then send a signal to the receiver and then the receiver will activate something.

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Well the first two pic are of the transmitter and the third pic is of the receiver. I need to know if the relay in the transmitter the first two pics is wired up properly and how to hook up the fuse that's to the side of the relay
Electrician: Sam I, Electrician replied 10 months ago

Also where is the power source for the transmitter. It looks like there is 120 volt input from a plug, but I don't see a DC power source. Also where is the float input coming in to the panel?
