Hi. Just got my new 16-zone Iro installed and all zones are working well, setup was a breeze (thanks for the great software, Rachio!). The only thing I couldn’t figure out is how to see if the rain sensor functionality is working. I see that rain sensor events get logged in the history, but since I just installed the Iro, I don’t have any rain sensor history yet.
Please consider showing “current rain sensor status”, for example:
Enabled: no rain
Enabled: rain detected
Most traditional off-the-shelf controllers supply this status information on their front panel… Would be great to see this little info on the main page in the app (same page as “Next scheduled watering time is…”).
I’m assuming the best way for me to test the rain sensor is to manually activate it using the self-test button on the external unit, and then check the Iro history. Please let me know if there’s a better way.
