OpenSprinkler Forums OpenSprinkler Unified Firmware Rain sensor – extra delay Reply To: Rain sensor – extra delay



@Ray, Thanks for your reply. It would be very interesting to have a function that take more advantage of the rain sensor by:
– if the cumulative time between X and Y (over a period of time) is above T then we could delay the sprinkler by H hours –> and this could be parametered by user based on the observation because if it rain 1 hour or 6 hours since the last spray it is not the same as it would have rain during 5 hours. The soil will need less water in the second case that on the first. So delaying the spray is more inportant on the second case than on the first case.

Having also a graph of rain time based on rain sensor would be good as well (only duration of rain and not a cuimulative one).

Definitively this is something that would had value to the system.
