I’ve got some rotor zones set to run 2 hours, last night they ran for 10 minutes. When i checked the weather percentage this morning it read 45%, so i would have expected that zone to run perhaps 50 minutes. But it ran a few hours earlier and the weather percentage probably (obviously) changed since then.
But it would be useful to see what the values historically were, perhaps with some sort of graph as well.
It would also be useful to see all the values that were calculated to create the percentage.
I’m wondering exactly what cut the water back last night, maybe there was an error in the readings from the weather provider?
Right now, I have no way to reconcile what exactly happened to knock down the watering from 2 hours to 10 minutes.
We are adding water logging in firmware 2.1.1 and will show the data next to the zone runs in the table view.
I will also consider plotting this data graphically and want to also use this data to calculate water savings when using automated weather adjustments.
In regard to the actual weather data, logging all of that can become quite a bit of data and also make it hard to read. For the most accurate results, use the weather station selection tool available in the edit options page (location icon next to the input box).
I love this feature but here’s another suggestion. What about adding entries to the table view the individual daily temperature, humidity and precipitation entries as well as the calculated averages for each along side the watering percentage. It would help to make some sense of how the percentages are arrived at. It’s not a biggie but I think it would be useful.
