when I swapped out the old sprinkler system for Rachio last spring, the wiring for the rain sensor was confusing, so I left it disconnected and just trusted Weather Intelligence Plus to handle it, and it did that quite effectively.
I finally got around to tracing the wiring paths, and connected the rain sensor today. The moment I enabled the sensor, the app automatically disabled all weather intelligence features on all my schedules.
Why does it do this? I had expected to primarily rely on weather intelligence, but use the sensors a backup to turn off sprinklers if weather intelligence missed some precipitation. The sensor is more than 15 years old, I don’t know how well I can trust it, and I figure overall the intelligence data may be more reliable.
Is that not how it works?
