Rain sensor flip flopping

It is currently not raining at home yet I’m receiving these. Were they stuck in a queue somewhere or do I need to do some physical investigations such as checking for wire breaks?

This article has troubleshooting for rain sensors.


It seemed to be anomalous occurrence and hasn’t happened again. The system has since been closed for winter so we’re now in standby until spring.

Have a great Winter!


I am new to the Rachio community, as I replaced my older controller with Rachio. I had some interesting results when I first installed the hunter rain sensor. I originally mis-wired the “white” wire to common instead of connecting it to one of “yellow” wires. I had the same exact symptoms of the zone starting and stopping. Not sure if this helps or not but I figured better to share :slight_smile:
