Several of the weather stations available as options in the Rachio app near me list rain or wind data as “Unavailable” on Weather Underground’s site. I don’t know what will happen if I use those, but it doesn’t seem like a good idea for me to choose them?
I have a weather station at my house, but it has neither a rain gauge nor an anemometer. Weather Underground correctly lists these data types as “Unavailable” — not 0, which is of course different. As soon as I selected a weather station I know reports both rain and wind as my weather station for Rachio, I received an email suggesting I switch to my own weather station because it’s closer.
Hopefully Rachio’s “weather network” knows better to not use “Unavailable” sensors at all.
