Ok. It rained cats and dogs in my town all day Saturday. On Sunday(Mother’s Day), it rained and hailed periodically. When I look at the Rachio moisture graph it has recorded ZERO preciptitation and the moisture level is below Zero. I looked at weather underground for another station close by and it reports 4" of precipitation. The only thing that saved me from watering last night is that my Rain sensor is still active. Could Rachio be ignoring the preciptation checks when the rain sensor is active? It has me scheduled for heavy irrigation everyday this week. This will be a waste of water. It looks like the weather station did not report from 5/12 - 5/14. IDoesn’t Rachio fall back to the nearest NOAA as a backup? If not, Id like to request a new feature allowing the user to set a primary and secondary station. Feels like i am babysiting the weather stations and weather forecasts. I am going to try and find another weather station near my home. But I think that even if I changed the weather station now, Rachio would not change the watering schedule since it was a past event. It will also miss the precip amounts. Is this correct?
I think I saw in another post someone asking to tie the rain delay to the rain sensor. This is sounding more sensible to me now as a user selectable option. It would be if rain sensor activated, delay any one of the current manually selectable days. I originally didnt respond to the other post because I figured well, Rachio is forced to wait for my sensor to dry out. But given this situation, this feature is also needed. You can smarten it up by checking the weather and for sensor dry out. At this point, it feels like a double edged sword. I wanted my Rachio to be a set and forget it. The other weird thing I show no water savings since using my Rachio. When should I expect to see calculated savings?
