i have been playing around with OS3, setting programs whilst i get the sprinklers dug in.
have set my location as Adelaide, Australia, and have set ETo with 11 meters and 4.8 baseline.
Darksky and the “Bureau of Meteorology Australia” here show sunrise at approx 6:06am and sunset at 20:34pm, (next few days).
if i set a program to start at sunrise/sunset, program preview shows sunrise will come on at about 5:40am and sunset about 20:05pm.
but if i click sunrise/sunset with override +25-27 ish minutes, program preview will show the approx correct start times.
or am i missing something with they way i’m setting up a program start times?
refer S08 in the pic.
The program preview (UI) and firmware use different scripts to calculate sunrise/sunset time, which may result in the difference. Also, if you are previewing today’s program, the UI will use the firmware’s sunrise/sunset time because those are variables the firmware will report to the UI. However, if you are previewing the programs for the next few days, the UI will use its own script to calculate sunrise/sunset time because the firmware does not keep track of the forecast sunrise/sunset times. To diagnose this further, the best way is for you to submit a support ticket with your controller’s configurations saved as a file, so we can import it and try to reproduce the issue on our end.
