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.
