Wireless Rain Sensor

The wireless rain sensor immediately detects rain and snow. Due to a low detection threshold and a large sensor area the device easily detects rain. Thus, switching commands will be send immediately to qleverGATEWAY. The Rain Sensor can be used for example in connection with a shutter actuator to enable automatic retraction of canopies in the event of rain.

An integrated sensor heating accelerates drying of the sensor area which prevents freezing or dew formation. However, unintended switching signals are being avoided. In connection with the qleverGATEWAY an individual filter time can be set. The filter time is defined by a period of time during which rain has to be detected before a switching command will be send to the qleverGATEWAY. Thus, it will be avoided that already short contact with humidity (e.g. water splashes) will trigger an action.

The rain sensor is suitable for outdoor installation. The device is equipped with brackets for wall and mast mounting. Operation temperature is between -20° C to +55° C.
