Just installed my Rachio two weeks ago. I live in North Texas, where we’ve had a bunch of rain lately, so haven’t needed to use the system this year. I have an 11 zone system with an Irritrol Rain Sensor wired in - I have Connected Rain Sensor ON, Use weather data ON. Via my app, I get notifications of when the system senses that “It’s Raining” or “It’s Stopped Raining” but it seems to be intermittent. A few questions:
Are the rain notifications triggered from my rain sensor directly or from the local weather station data?
Does the rain sensor at my house trump data provided by the local weather station data when determining to enable rain delay or not?
In the upcoming version 2.0, do you plan on including advanced weather/rain analytics - either taking in information from the local weather station data and/or rain sensor?
Is there a preferred rain sensor (better than the Irritrol) that actually provides total rain collected back to the Rachio vs. simply triggering a Rain Delay event?
Appreciate the help and guidance! Excited about the new features I see coming out in v2.0!
