Rain Status doesnt change

I am trying to setup the rain sensor
I have the 4.7k ohm resistor between terminals 2-6, and I am for now just testing with a piece of wire between terminals 6 and 7
weather I have the wire in 6/7 or not, I get NO change from the status on the rain sensor on the status page..

A couple things to check to make sure setup is correct. Are you using a breakout connector on the RJ45 port for the rain sensor wiring that you indicated? Also, have you enabled the rain sensor on the configuration page of the EZFlora plugin?

If possible, please post a picture of your EZFlora setup too.

Hello adam,
yes I am using the breakout connector, I wasn't aware of any other way to do it without it.
I have enabled the rain sensor in the config

Please turn on debug level logging messages in the plugin and post the log showing the rain status being disabled and then re-enabled and also while the wire is being connected and disconnected from the breakout connector so I can investigate further.

OK, I did as you requested..
I turned on Debugging,
Changed the rain sensor, off, then on again, also changed the polling to 1 min, so I didn't have to wait 15 mins for it to see the rain sensor wire removal..
I then took off and put the wire back on twice

I have looked over the log and verified that the EZFlora is accurately showing the status changes in the message traffic. I also looked into the plugin and tested that the rain status message works on my setup. The only thing I can think of that would cause it to not show status changes was if the INI file had an error. Please post a copy of your EZFlora.ini file so I can verify your configuration settings.

Thanks,

Adam

It looks like your INI file is setup correctly too. Lets try to remove the rain sensor device from HomeSeer and then re-add it to see if the status changes start being done properly. From the EZFlora configuration page, edit the EZFlora device, then select "Add/Remove", then uncheck "Enable Rain Sensor Device" and "Save Device Configuration". This will remove the device from HomeSeer, then go back in and do the same steps, to recheck the "Enable Rain Sensor Device".

Once that is done, try seeing if the rain status is updated properly.

HEy Adam,
OK, so I did as you said, however it didn't remove the rain sensor device from home seer it was still in the list of devices..
so I deleted it manually..

Delete the number after the equal sign for "RSS" in the IN I file and try re-adding it again. If that doesn't work, there must have been an error in the device creation process so the EZFLORA device would need to be deleted through the configuration page and ensure that all the associated device are removed from the HomeSeer device list and then create the EZFLORA device again through the plug in configuration page.

Ok so I went back in to remove that number from the RSS line, however, that LINE nor the MC Line are there any longer..
So I decided screw it, I don't have any crazy programming on it
ill delete it, and just add it from scratch...
I went in, deleted it, and it doesn't go away...
I goto exflora config, select the check box, next to the device, click delete, say yes to delete it, and it doesn't go away even if I refresh the page...

Perfect, that was going to be my next suggestion. It sounds like something didn't initialize properly when the plugin got setup so disabling it and re-enabling along with re-adding the device forced things back to a functional state . I'm glad it's working now, but let me know if you run into any other issues.
