Rainfall measurement


#1

Do any of the Rachio approved sensors measure rainfall accumulation?


#2

To the best of my knowledge, rainfall accumulation is only used from weather stations. The sensor that you would have at your house only works as an on/off, water/don’t water switch for the Rachio.


#3

If they cannot differentiate between 1 mm and 50 mm are they still useful?

For me, very much so. My PWS is 2.5 miles, and it can get rain when I don’t and vice verse. I’d put my own weather station in, but I don’t have a good location. So the rain sensor will pick up and shut the system off whenever it rains at my house, no matter what happened at the PWS.
