Hi Steve,

If I would have a UV sensor (UVN 800) does Cumulus than also calculate the “Total hours of sunshine”?
And if so how accurate is that?

No, it only does it from Fine Offset light sensors or Davis solar sensors. I have no idea how you would do it from UV readings and I imagine it wouldn't be very accurate. It's quite hard to do it from solar readings as it is.
