The robot continues to mow, even though there is heavy rain.

For RC, TC, MC models

The following is the robot's behavior when rain is detected:

Islands On:

The moment rain is detected by the robot, it will wait about 1 minute to make sure it is not a false detection. If the rain detection still exists after 1 minute, the robot will stop the blades and start searching for a corner on the lawn. This is because if an Island is installed on the lawn, the robot will not acquire the first wire it reaches, since it can be an island, which will cause the robot to spin around the island. As a result of this behavior, it may take the robot longer to arrive back to the Base Station.

 

Islands Off:

The moment rain is detected by the robot, it will wait about 1 minute to make sure it is not a false detection. If the rain detection still exists after 1 minute, the robot will stop the blades and start searching for the first wire it reaches to acquire the wire, and then drive back to the Base Station.

 

Q1 . Make sure the Rain Sensor is enabled on the robot by pressing the  button for 3 seconds --> P007 Is it set to On?

If Yes – Proceed to Q2.

If No – Change the setting to On.

 

Q2 . Does the robot have a Rain Sensor Sticker on the panel?

If Yes – Proceed to Q3.

If No – Contact the Hot Line to receive a Rain Sensor Sticker.

 

Q3 . Raise the Rain Sensor sensitivity by pressing  for 3 seconds --> P008, and increasing the value by one segment to observe if this was enough to make the change on the robot. The higher the Sensitivity setting is, the more sensitive the robot will be to detect rain.
Raise the Rain Sensor sensitivity until you find your desired setting.

If Yes – Proceed to Q2.

If No – Change to On.

 

Q2 . Does the robot have a Rain Sensor Sticker on the panel?

If Yes – Proceed to Q3.

If No – Contact the Hot Line to receive a Rain Sensor Sticker.

 

Q3. Raise the Rain Sensor sensitivity by going into Mower Options --> Rain Sensor --> Sensitivity, and increasing the value by one segment to observe if this was enough to make the change on the robot. The higher the Sensitivity setting is, the more sensitive the robot will be to detect rain.
Raise the Rain Sensor sensitivity until you find your desired setting.
