Not sure if this has been asked for, but I'd like to be able to use activation of my cheap, externally connected hard-wired rain sensor to initiate a user-specified minimum rain delay, rather than being at the unpredictable mercy of the foam discs inside the sensor to dry out and deactivate itself using it's normal mechanism.
Reason for this is that I've found that my cheap little Orbit rain sensor dries out too quickly even though I've got it set to the 'slowest' dry-out setting. For example, after a 1/2" rain which triggers the sensor, it can dry out and deactivate itself in less than 24 hours. So I could (for example) get rain on Wednesday morning, yet my system will still irrigate on Thursday morning, and I don't want that.
So, I'd like to be able to set Iro to "when rain sensor triggers, initiate rain delay for 2 days" or "when rain sensor triggers, initiate rain delay for 3 days". This would give me a predictable 'system off' period following any activation of the external rain sensor.
This is a "wish list" item. Let me know if unclear.
