It should help to have the vent ring opened more. You may have to more the rain sensor to a sunny location, I haven't seen good luck with them in the shade.

I do have a Hunter controller. The rainfall quantity was set at 1/8. I just adjusted it to 1/4 and the vent ring is all the way open (It's in a shadier area). Do you think that this will help? It;s frustrating because my neighbors on either side have systems that are coming on at the same time and mine is the only one that doesn't come on at it's required start time in the morning. Thanks for the help!

If you are running a Hunter controller, running the bypass will allow the sprinklers to come on. Sounds to me like you have the sensitivity level set way too high. You should be able to adjust the amount of rainfall right on the sensor.

Rain sensor sensitivity

I have my timer set to come on at 4:30 am. It hasn't rained in the past 2 days but there has been a heavy morning dew and my sprinklers haven't been coming on as timed (They will come on if I bypass the sensor or later on in the day when the temperature has risen). Is the Mini-Clik THAT sensitive or what?
