    I’ve just reactivated my system after winter and now, the zones are only showing watering for 1 second in the history.

    I can test without any issues.

    I have two programs set up. 1 is 4 zones watering on odd days and the other is 4 zone watering on even days. I’ve tried creating new programs but that still hasn’t worked.

    Anyone has any idea why this is happening???

    Thanks

    @Jspinella I show that your zones are now watering like they should, are you still experiencing issues with this?

    This is typically solved by turning your sensor terminals off. To do that, hold down the “Rain Delay” button for 5-10 seconds. On the timer display, you’ll see “SENS OFF”, indicating that your rain sensor terminals have been shut off.

    Yes, I turned the sensor off and now everything is working but what good is it when it’s off??? Do I no longer need the sensor???

    Thanks for the reply.

    I think hes nicely saying that your rain sensor is broken… try replacing it. Its a Diaphragm that expands and either normally opens or normally closes that sensor circuit. If the sensor diaphragm is damaged and stuck open or closed it could be short sensing the rain sensor leads. Turning the leads off indicates its an issue with the rain sensor…

    If you have a rain sensor attached to those terminals and its preventing your system from running, it means teh sensor is active and blocking the system from running.

    So either A) you’ve had rain in the past few days and your sensor hasn’t dried out, B) Your sensor wires are not installed properly, or C) You have a defective rain sensor.

    I think it is not so simply in all cases. I have new device with jumper installed, but it behave same – running 1 sec and stops. I checked the jumper, it is attached well. Later I want to connect rain sensor but if it is not work well with jumper, it will not work well will rains sensor….
    Admin, please check, 44:67:55:04:0C:5F I must to install device at client side today, I don’t want to go to his house for any other testing, I want your device runs correct from beginning.
    Thanks

    @dainiux I have not seen that this is the actual experience. With a sensor in place, it will act as intended. However, I have seen that the jumper does not always work, which is why we have the backup plan with shutting the sensor terminal off. I show the timer is currently not connected to the internet. Is this an issue at the timer, or an issue with the customers internet?

    Timer is on and off time by time. Because of your “wonderful” WIFI issue which you are not able to solve for a past years. Customer has WIFI router in another part of the house, so signal was approx -88dBm. 12 hours works, 24 hours – not. So I put WIFI repeater (range extender) in between, but… This is good for phones, PC, IPTV, but not for your device…. Now problems with rain sensor for me is not prior. Of-course I know your answer – problem is with our router lol. Can you make at least option to configure your timer IP/SUBNETMASK/GATEWAY manually? What port does it use? 80?
