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:
Activate the Rain Sensor on the App (Device Settings > Advanced > Enable Rain Sensor Toggle)
Go to the
Activity Feed tab
Hold down the test spindle on the rain sensor.
Refresh your device's history. A new activity in the Device Updates section should be logged as "Rain sensor activated"
Release the test spindle on the rain sensor.
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.
