Rain Sensor - Detection

The log file appropriately indicates that the rain sensor event has been detected:

So it looks like you are using the correct iPhone Version and the latest firmware.

I have set the Rain Sensor Rain Delay to 1 Hour and shorted the input to trigger a rain event. Al looks correct on the iPhone app indicating a Rain Delay Active - 1 Hour remaining in red.

I repeated the test with the rain sensor active at power up with the same results.

Can you provide additional information as to how to repeat the issue here?

The fastest way to solve technical issues is to contact support via email with a good contact number so we can contact you directly - It is much more efficient to exchange details and resolve issues.

Yes we routinely support customers on weekends.

Thanks,

This issue was confirmed today and the correction for it has been posted in Version 3.00.09 available for automatic download via the "Update from Cloud Server" button or via traditional download and install.

Rain / Watering delays were not being activated unless the "Enable Watering Delay Push Notifications" was selected (checked) on the System Settings page.

Thanks Chad for your help!
