    Hi Jared,

    Thank you for contactin us.

    Our weather data comes from Aeris Weather and if you have a PWS, you need to send the weather data to PWS Weather (https://www.pwsweather.com) in order to be listed on the map.

    There are 2 kinds of rain skips, using a hardwired rain sensor (Rain Sensor Skip) or using the "chance of rain" forecast data (Chance of Rain). If you choose "Rain Sensor Skip", then you need a hardwired rain sensor. If you choose "Chance of Rain" and you think the forecast is not accurate, please let us know by sending a ticket via support@aeonmatrix.com, then we will check the weather station you picked.

    Best Regards,
    Joseph

    Hi Joseph,

    Thanks for the quick reply!  What I was hoping to do is if the linked weather station reported rainfall to activate the rain sensor skip for several days the same as if it were hardwired.  The forecast data I'm getting is great and has been accurate but it only can skip that one day--it doesn't allow for a skip for several days like the hardwired sensor option does.  Perhaps this could be added as a feature under the rain sensor skip to also trigger based on the data received from the weather station as an option?

    Thanks for the info about the PWS data--I will try to get my station added to this database!

    Hi Jared,

    Understood!
    Usually the weather stations report rainfall data with some delay but I will discuss with our team about this request. Using "chance of rain" to trigger a rain delay should be possible. I will keep you posted.

    Best regards,
    Joseph

    Sounds great--thanks!  My property has some rocky areas that hold water for many days after a rain, although I'm sure the "soil moisture" setting should help with that without having to do a manual skip.  I've only had my Yardian installed for a week or two so I'm still acclimating to all of the Smart Watering Program features!

    I added my weather station as a PWS on pwsweather.com but it does not show on the map or list in the Yardian app.  How often does your database sync with PWSWeather?  This is my station:  https://www.pwsweather.com/obs/KCASPRIN94.html

    Hi Jared,

    It usually takes 1~2 days for Aeris Weather to update the database.
    We should see it on the map soon.

    Best Regards,
    Joseph

    Hi Joseph, thanks for your continued support!  I checked again and it still isn't showing on the map within the Yardian interface...  It does show on PWSWeather however.

    Hi Jared,

    We need to wait until Aeris Weather updates their database. We will send a request to them of we don't see it tomorrow. We will keep you posted.
