Will my Rachio Gen 2 system water in winter at -10C or 14F?


#1

I have logged in my system dashboard and can see the suggestion to water at -10C or 14F.
I configured correctly my longitude/lattitude coordinate.
Fortunately I have unplugged from november !!.
Can you help me and clarify that situation ?
Thanks in advance,

@voducngh - if the weather station that is selected has accurate temperature for your location it should do a freeze skip an hour before the scheduled watering. Be sure that freeze skip is turned on for Fixed schedules and I think it is automatically set for 0C or 32F for Flex schedules.

If one prefers a belts and suspenders approach, one can connect a temperature sensor to one of the Rachio sensor ports (configured as a rain sensor, as there is no freeze sensor) as documented here -> 'Freeze Protection' at 50 Degrees (F) Implemented

Freeze alarm is fixed at 32 degrees, no more, no less, for flex daily schedules. This is not an adjustable threshold.

Best regards,

Bill

@a0128958 - the fixed 32 degree F setpoint for flex is in the current V2 version of the software. Things may change in V3.

IFTTT is another skip option with a variable temp.
