Multiple notifications of my rain sensor activating and deactivating


I have a Rachio Gen2 with a wired Hunter Mini click rain sensor that is just 2 years old. I’ve read others having the same issue of MULTIPLE duplicate notifications that their rain sensor has been activated and deactivated. I have also read on the forum that they have been instructed to check the wiring or clean the rain sensor. I installed my rain sensor just 2 years ago and for all that time its worked perfectly, therefore, I believe my wiring is correct. I also went on the ladder made sure the unit is clean and even pressed the tab on the top of the unit to make sure it clicks and makes contact. I truly feel with so many of us having the same issue, it’s not a wiring or hardware issue, which only leaves a possible software issue. Its rained here in NJ for the past 7 days, so my sensor still shows activated, but previous to this, I kept getting rain sensor notifications like crazy stating activated, deactivated for at least 4-5 times a session before it settled down to activated.

Just wondering if a problem has been identified and has been resolved. Love the Rachio Controller! It has saved me tons of money with my water bill not to mention the convenience.



Interesting and thanks for reporting. I just ordered one of these models (can’t remember what we have at the office) and will do extensive testing on Monday when it arrives. Will let you know what is identified.
