I’ve noticed my Rachio keeps watering even when it’s been wet, very wet! This morning for example it commenced watering, even though we’d had 9 hours of rain the previous evening. Looking on WU, it appears 3 or 4 of the nearest weather stations to me are showing no rain, it’s only when I went further afield, I found a station that had recorded the rain.
I’ve temporarily selected that station, but I was wondering would a rain sensor assist, or does that only skip the program if it’s raining at the time it’s due to start rather than reviewing the rain over the last 24 hours?
Thanks @scorp508, when it activates does it only stop the schedule whilst raining, and then restart them as usual? E.g. if I have scheduled run at 8am and it’s raining from 1am - 6am will it still water at 8am?
The sensor is kind of like a small collection cup. I need to go check but I think ours is set to 1/4" of rain. Once it collects 1/4" or more no schedule will run until the water in it evaporates and lowers the float below the trip point. If it collected 1/2" then it would skip schedules longer than if it collected 3/8" if the heat/sunlight/humidity were the same.
