I use Dan’s/Ray’s Interval Script to control sprinklers at home and Salbahra’s script to control over the web.
In Salbahra’s scripts, I know that the sprinkler system reliably stops on rain (making a call you the Yahoo weather API) The other morning though it ran when it was 27 degrees and was reported at 27 degrees.
- Does Salbahra’s script turn off on freezing temperature as well as rain? It looks like it should, but it didn’t.
- Is there some way that the Interval Program might have conflicted with Salbahra’s?
- Would I be better off to go ahead and add a rain freeze sensor than depend on the Yahoo call?
I just want to make sure I do what’s best so I don’t have ice on the sidewalks, etc. BUT haven’t had great success with rain/freeze sensors.
Thanks to Ray, Salbahra and Dan for their great contributions!
