I have a Hunter Mini Clik rain sensor. The only way to do a manual test is for to climb up a 16 foot ladder to get to the rain sensor. At my age, I no longer feel safe doing that (and my kids would have my hide!!!)
Yes, I know about the flex schedules and the rain sensor. Just a reminder, but remember I have ONLY worked with flex schedules up until now and have a pretty good understanding of them.
Since I wrote this note, I can see that my rain sensor is functioning, but still cannot tell if Rachio is always recording it correctly. On Sept. 24, the IRO shows the rain sensor was activated. Had lots of rain for days and never see it showing deactivated. I did a Power Cycle on Oct. 8. and had 4 days without rain during that time. It rained again around an inch on Oct. 10. Still nothing recording on the IRO. On Oct. 19 I turned my drip flex schedule back on just to test, and on Oct. 20 it watered, so the IRO obviously did not see the rain sensor as activated. Several days with no rain, and on 10/27 it rained, and the IRO recorded that the Rain sensor was activated. (Also, since 10/26 I have had NO water schedules enabled).
My nearest weather station is over 5 miles away, but since I have been home, and based on the water I’ve seen in my bird bath, the rain amounts are probably close.
So from watching all this, can I assume that the IRO should always show in the Device Updates when the rain sensor activates or deactivates, no matter whether it is set up for fixed or flex schedules to run?
And should I be contacting support about it not recording when the rain sensor is deactivated?
