I am the new owner of a Rachio 3. I installed the controller during a rain so I have yet to actually set a schedule per instructions from my gardener. I will be curious to see how it works. It’s fascinating.
One of the reasons I got the system is so my sprinklers will not run with rain. To that end, I have decided to rely on a nearby weather station rather than the “Weather Network” in Weather Intelligence Plus. I am posting a screenshot of the weather station I selected. Here are a few questions:
I wanted to make sure it is set to measure rainfall. So, I selected to see the last month and it does register rainfall. I assume that means the station is measuring rainfall and it is a good one to use?
Also, is it safe to say that it is someone’s personal weather station (PWS)??
Will a PWS .92 miles from my home still give me a good reading? I imagine so, but would love to hear any opinions.
Thanks in advance for the information.
