I like Wind Skip


#1

I had two customer controllers skip running due to high wind. Cool!

My question: Does Rachio try and catch up on the watering that it missed when it was windy? What happens to scheduling?

@franz @emil My question: Does Rachio try and catch up on the watering that it missed when it was windy? What happens to scheduling?

I’ve got a customer that has skipped scheduled watering a few times due to wind over 15 and 20mph. I’ve reset the threshold to a higher mph now. I’m looking for clarification on what happens after these events.

I like the feature, but think it may become too much in windy areas, especially on fixed water day schedules.

If it is a fixed schedule or flexible monthly we do not schedule again. That logic is fairly complicated :wink:

If it is a flexible daily schedule and we skip due to wind the schedule will just be moved one day forward (assuming the soil moisture is depleted).

Hope this helps and have a great week!
