Followup…I did a live chat with Gillian at Orbit and she informed me that the rain sensor will only work during a scheduled timer event. It will not work when you manually run a zone or program. I scheduled a program to run a few minutes in advance and when the program started running, the rain sensor did indeed stop the watering when I pressed the rain sensor button. I figured I would leave this up just in case anyone else runs into this issue when installing a rain sensor with a Bhyve timer. (Nowhere in the instructions for the timer or the rain sensors was this explained. The first Orbit tech I spoke to did not realize this either.)
