Raspberry Pi irrigation system rain bypass
This web-enabled rain sensor will automatically turn-off an irrigation system when it rains using a Raspberry Pi:
This Raspberry Pi Irrigation System Rain Bypass uses a web connected Raspberry Pi to look up rain predictions and disable the irrigation system from watering the lawn if it won’t be necessary. The existing controller has an input for a rain sensor which is how the Raspberry Pi is inhibiting the controller but by having the rain prediction data you could optimize your water usage since if it will rain this afternoon you might want to hold off on watering the lawn in the morning.
