I’m trying to find a way to set up a reminder to water the grass. Say, if it hasn’t rained more than X inches in X days, or something more simple than that.
I have the SmartWeather tile and updater app set up, getting data from a nearby Weather Undeground station. (I was going to get my own weather station and then realized someone else had one down the street.) The tile works well, but I can’t seem to find a way to use that data to automate anything that would serve my purpose. Sending text messages, for example, is only attached to Smart Home Monitor, which has limited options, and the SmartRules app doesn’t have anything for precipitation as far as I can tell.
Is there a way to do this via SmartThings that I’m missing? Or another smart app someone’s developed maybe?
If someone knows of a non-SmartThings way to do this, that would be appreciated too. Keeping it in SmartThings is convenient for things I might want to do in the future, but not technically necessary for now I suppose.
