In some cases you may have the need to create a custom sensor in your Hydrawise account.
Some examples of custom sensor types are below:
- A flow meter of a different size to the standard Hydrawise flow meters.
- A sensor to conform to restrictions that specify no watering for a minimum period of time after rain is detected.
- A sensor to start irrigation if motion is detected (Enthusiast Plan only)
To add a custom sensor type, go to Sensors and click on Add Custom Sensor Type. Give the sensor a name and choose its type as outlined below. Flow Meter Liters per pulse:The number of liters of water expected to pass through the flow sensor per flow meter pulse (you can get this information from your flow meter’s specifications) Normally Open Sensor/Normally Closed Sensor Sensor Action:Whether the sensor should cause a zone to start or stop. Start a Zone If the zone should start, choose the minimum number of seconds before the sensor can cause the same zone to start again. Stop a Zone If the zone should stop, choose the number of seconds to delay before stopping the zone, and how long the zone should be disabled.For example, some watering restrictions require that if rain is detected, sprinklers should not run for at least two days.
