How can we help?

Is there an advantage to a PWS with a solar sensor?

    Hi, Eric
    Thank you for your question.
    The best thing to do is to use the closest station to your location and if it is one operated by the county, much better.
    Anyway, it would not hurt to test them for a period of time and see the one that is most accurate for you.
    Remember that the Weather Station data is not a forecast data it's just "yesterday" data fetched by RainMachine from the weather station and used in the watering algorithm to decide if there is the need to water less(not at all) or more. Forecast correction should be also enabled to ensure that there will be corrections applied to the data received from the weather station in case that there are some huge discrepancies.

    Thank you, Eric
