I've seen that flow meter support was added to the Touch HD, but that it uses the same pins as the rain sensor and thus only one of rain sensor or flow meter is supported. I want both.
So my idea was to send the flow "pulse" to the Touch HD by software API call by having a water meter with pulse output hooked up to a small Audrino that would make the API call to the Rainmachine every time it detected the hardware pulse from the actual meter. I very quickly looked at rainmachine.docs.apiary.io to see if there was anything that looked like it would do that and didn't see anything.
So two questions:
1) Is there a API input method to pulse the flow meter counter in the Rainmachine? (and I just missed it)
2) If not, could you add it to the API to allow other creative solutions to feed the Raimachine flow data?
