Installed Rachio Gen 2. Also installed and wired and tested a Hunter Wireless Rain-Clik. Configured a govt weather station located approx 15 miles from my home - nothing closer.
Regrettably, there are times when it may be raining cats and dogs over there, but over here it's dryer than a desert.
Which is exactly what happened last night - it rained over there (0.37), but it was bone dry over here. And being as it is Rachio was using the default values - it skipped watering.
So my question is - what is the relationship, if any, between the data the Rachio gets from the weather station AND the rain sensor? If the weather station is "ok, it rained" but the rain sensor says "no rain here !" - which one takes precedence ?
I've found no way to disable the weather station on the web interface - or a setting that says "local rain sensor takes precedence over weather station report".
