For weather intelligence the faq says
When Weather Intelligence (WI) is turned on for a watering time, our system will check the weather report 60 minutes before that watering time is scheduled to run. If it has recently rained or is going to rain soon, it skips that watering time. Our servers get weather reports from our weather service, detailing the amount of rain in the 24 hours before the watering time, and predicting the rain for the 24 hours after. If the total rain is more than a set amount, the watering time is skipped (doesn’t run that time).
So it rained some today, and since we’re in a drought here in CA this seems like a chance to push out my watering by one day. Meaning each and every future watering will be shifted one day into the future. Today is Wed, my next scheduled watering day is Fri. So Weather Intelligence won’t pick up the rain today since today is 48 hours before the next scheduled run.
Ok, I need a manual delay, but I’m not sure how to set it correctly or if it is even possible because the FAQ above seems to be saying a schedule either runs or is skipped, not delayed. What I want to do is insert a 1-day delay, pushing my next watering and all future waterings out by a day. But I’m not sure how to do this. From the wording of the text above my options seem to be
- set a “rain delay” of 2 days, enough to cover Friday. Then Friday won’t be delayed (even though the manual FAQ title is “Manually Setup Rain Delay” and not “Manually Skip a Scheduled Run”) but skipped.
- change my schedules so the next scheduled runs start a day later
Have I misunderstood this? Is there an easy way to insert a 1 day delay into my schedule?
