Today, I noticed that Rachio had skipped the watering yesterday at 6AM because of activated rain sensor. Below is the timeline from Rachio history
- Aug 19 - 9:45 PM Rain sensor activated
- Aug 20 - 12:51 PM Rain sensor Deactivated
- Aug 20 - 5:07AM - Zone not skipped because station KIAD observed 0.01 in and predicted 0.0 in and threshold is 0.125
- Aug 20 6 AM - Zone skipped due to activated rain sensor.
In this case, the rain sensor was active, however the observed precipitation was less than threshold, shouldn’t the weather station data take precedence over the rain sensor? I am assuming Rachio also looks at current weather condition at the time of running the algorithm to determine is schedule needs to be skipped. Is my assumption correct?
