Rain Sensor Notifications

App Notifications

If you have a rain sensor connected to your Rachio controller, you will begin to see notifications in your history when the rain sensor is triggered on & off. These notifications will either state "Rain sensor activated." or "Rain sensor deactivated." and can be found on the "Device Updates" card on the app.
(see examples below)

What these Notifications Mean

When the rain is enough to trip your sensor, you will see a "Rain sensor activated." notification in your history. This indicates that the rain sensor has been triggered and subsequently will override the Rachio system, preventing any pre-scheduled watering. Once your rain sensor has dried up, you will see a "Rain sensor deactivated." notification. This means that the rain sensor is no longer triggered and the system will return to normal operation.
