Rain Delay, Climate Adjust, Rain Sensor Delay

Rain Delay: The rain delay looks at:

  • the predicted precipitation for the current day
  • the reported rain from yesterday
  • the cumulative reported rain from the last 7 days with a depletion factor the further out in the past
  • Uses the rain delay value entered in setup

……and skips if any of the above surpasses the threshold. We use the darksky.net API – the location used is the latitude / longitude that is set for your controller on the Devices page.

Climate Adjust: Climate adjust will adjust your weekly base duration both up and down. You should set your base durations based on a ~70 degF day (early summer timeframe).

Rain Sensor Delay: Available when a wired rain sensor is attached and enabled.  Skips watering while the rain sensor is active.
