Using wireless soil moisture sensors with Rachio


#1

Is it possible to use a wireless soil moisture sensor such as these…

With something like this we could just set the Rachio to water our grass once our soil has reached a certain moisture level. It would allow easier irrigation optimizing without know our soil characteristics, and past weather history.

Is it possible to use these with Rachio? I’d love to have one in each zone.

Thanks!

@jmed999 - Not directly. Doesn’t mean that one couldn’t use IFTTT or API code to provide some connectivity between the two products - but I wouldn’t expect real-time updates.
