Why isn't Rachio using my weather station for freeze skip?


#1

Rachio is configured to use my weather station which reports the low temperature so far today is 33.6º. However my 1st gen Rachio just did a freeze skip based on “the weather service in your area has observed the current temperature to be 32°F”. Why isn’t Rachio using my weather station to determine this?

Should it not have skipped?

Any update on this? I have just installed 2nd gen Rachio and configured my PWS. I had to move freeze skip temperature to 2°C as it always seemed to use higher temperature than my PWS measured (this is why I have a PWS a it’s quite windy and so colder near my house).

Notification mentioned that observed temperature was 1°C, but PWS history showed that temperature dropped to -2.2°C. Is it using my PWS at all, or just ignoring it and I wasted money on that? I couldn’t check rain skip yet as it had not rained for last few weeks.

Thanks,

Martin
