My sprinklers were set to run at 10pm May 28th, so weather intelligence checked to see if it rained on the 27th and on the 28th and as it did not rain, the sprinklers ran. We received 1.5" of rain on May 29th at 10am, 12 hours after the sprinklers ran, so according to the FAQ, the sprinklers should not have run. I’m confused, if that is not supposed to happen, then the FAQ should be updated, it will be a nice feature to have though.
How does Rain Skip work?
Rain Skip checks the weather one hour before your watering schedule starts. Any time a schedule’s preselected rainfall threshold is met using observed and forecasted rainfall (rainfall in the last 24 and the next 24 hours), the watering schedule is skipped. For example, if you have your rain threshold set to 0.5", and it rained 0.25" in the last 24 hours and is expected to water more than 0.25" in the next 24 hours, your schedule will be skipped.
