    On a related note, I would like to know where I can get a 6-pin connector that would allow me to plug in a hardware rain sensor.  In the support articles on this site, it shows to connect it to the 2 far right pins of the 6-pin connector, however, I would like some type of harness that I can attach.   Where can I get this connector?

    Levelbest - You are correct, I would swap the setting for Rain sensor normally closed. 

    Makoto - This is something we are in the process of planning, and hope to have a 6-pin connect at some point. Stay tuned with our newsletter at www.rainmachine.com/help.php

    Makoto - I also was trying to figure out how to do that.  It does show on the support article that its possible but there was no connector to attach it to.

    Hi,

     

    I used a connector from an old 3-pin computer fan I had laying around (cut the wires, stripped two of them and spliced them with the wires running to the rain sensor). I have one of the Hunter Click rain sensors.

    With that being done I can't seem to find where the option to select whether or not I have a rain sensor is? I looked through the RainMachine interface & through the app (I have a HD-12 ver. 2 & am using the iOS app). Infact I also took a quick look through the web GUI. I thought it would be under restrictions, but I can't seem to find it..

    Am I going senile already?!

    thanks!

    No you are not. You need to install latest beta firmware. They added rain sensor setting in there

    thanks for the super fast response!

    I was just going through the change log for the latest beta version and saw that the rain sensor bit was added in the latest beta & came back here to retract my querry, but seems like you beat me to it

    When are you planning to release the 6 pin connector for the rain sensor? I would like to use the integrated option.
