I went through the setup guide and installed Unified firmware on my Pi, created a Program, ran the program manually to verify that everything works, however, my program will not run as scheduled. I can find no system logs on my pi and the so called log on the web interface shows that it didn’t run. Is there any place that can tell me why it didn’t run? System logs? App logs? There seems to be none.
Also, I am not clear with ‘% Watering’ means, it is set to 0% by default, do I need to set that to 100%? What is 100%? 100% watering my lawn? This should be a given I would think.
It has not rained in the last week so a program should have ran.
Are you using the weather adjustment? If so have you entered your key from weather underground? Is your location set correctly? Boston MA is the default and since they just got slammed with snow the percentage would be 0 for there. The water percentage default in the firmware is 100%. If it is showing 0 it was updated to 0.
If you go to the support pages you can find a list of all the API commands and how to use them. /jl is logs and /ja will show all settings.
If after checking through everything and making sure it is correct post your result from /ja just be sure to check it for sensitive information first.
Honestly it sounds like one of your settings didn’t save correctly, so even if you are sure you set them it’s worth a second look.
There are several reasons why a program wont’ run. One is if the program is set to ‘Use Weather’ and the watering level is 0%. The water level could be set 0% manually by you, or could be set by the weather algorithm. Another reason could be that your system clock does not match wall clock, so it’s scheduled to run but not at the time you think it would run.
