I just got a Gen3 installed for my mother in Florida and configured it to use a PWS nearby. Yesterday the station recorded over an inch of rain in the afte rnoon but the station reported no recorded precipitation and the schedule still ran the schedule shortly after midnight.
Is there a time lag in getting wunderground data to where Rachio can use it? I have to assume the controller isn’t actually looking at the weather station data directly, but instead looking at Rachio’s database after the PWS data is loaded. The station I’m using is KFLBEVER5 and the rain event was 4:30pm on 7/4, if that helps locate the missing data.
After doing more reading in the FAQ, I see that selecting a PWS with a Gen3 controller is not advised. However, reading other kb articles, I assume written a while ago, still point the user to selecting a PWS. While, I personally understand how difficult it is to maintain user documentation as new software versions and products are released, maybe breaking up the kb articles into generation specific area would be a workable solution. As it is now, it is kind of caveat emptor.
