Rain delay

Postby maine_man » Mon Jun 09, 2014 12:35 am

Installed my wired unit today and got it working (pretty much) on the first try. Very impressed! The only thing is that the unit keeps canceling the programs due to a rain event. Since we haven't gotten any rain in the last 24 hours, nor is any in the forecast, something is not right. Current settings:

METAR Data Rain Options Enabled: unchecked
METAR Weather Station Identifier: KFIT
METAR 24 Hour Precipitation Total - Rain Delay Trigger Level in Hundredths (1 = .01") Range 1 to 100: 100 (in an attempt to really make sure unit wouldn't trigger a rain event)
ONLY Use METAR Precipitation 24 Hour Total to Trigger Rain Delay (Unchecked will use all METAR Rain detection methods): checked
NOAA Data Probability of Precipitation Options Enabled: unchecked
NOAA Probability of Precipitation Threshold - Entered in Percent, Range 1 to 100: 100 (in an attempt to really make sure unit wouldn't trigger a rain event)
NOAA Probability of Precipitation Days in Advance Threshold - Entered in Days, Range 1 to 6: 2
Rain Sensor Input Select (Default setting is Normally Open, Un-Checked = Normally Closed): blank
Rain Sensor & AutoRain Delay Time Hours (1-99 Hrs): 1 (tried 0, but defaults to this)

Iphone status is always switching back to "Rain delay active: 1 hour remaining" even after I manually select "rain delay off". It goes to "system normal for a few seconds", but then back to "rain delay..."

Any advice?

Hi,

If you are not using a rain sensor then leave the check box checked otherwise it will think that a rain sensor is triggering the input. You seem to indicate that it is un-checked (blank?).

Please send support@hydroflash.net an email with a good contact number and we will call you right now to help.

Follow up to this post.

Rain Sensor type was set to "normally closed" (Option was Un-checked) and was always triggering the rain sensor event input.
Rain Sensor was not currently connected.

Thanks,
