    Does it actually use the DS1307 Real Time Clock on the board? What is its use?

    At this point the Python interval program does not use the RTC. It will probably be added at some point.

    The purpose of the RTC is to provide a stable time source when there is not an internet connection.

    Unlike the microcontroller-based OpenSprinkler, OSPi’s firmware programs do not actively set and read RTC directly. Instead, you should set it up with the RPi’s operating system in order to automatically set and read RTC. The OSPi Wiki page has instructions:
