How to test a rain sensor

Not sure if your rain sensor is wired correctly? Test it!

To test the rain sensor operation do the following:

1
Activate the Rain Sensor on the App (Device Settings > Advanced > Enable Rain Sensor Toggle)
2
Go to the  Activity Feed tab
3
Hold down the test spindle on the rain sensor.
4
Refresh your device's history. A new activity in the Device Updates section should be logged as "Rain sensor activated"
5
Release the test spindle on the rain sensor.
6
Refresh your device's history again. A new activity in the Device Updates section should be logged as "Rain sensor deactivated"
  • If you are not seeing Rain Sensor Activated / Deactivated under Device Updates, then the wiring is not attached correctly.

  • NOTE: the rain sensor will not impact manual operation of the system; only saved Watering Times will be skipped.
