TimB, I’ll answer your questions below.
The app gets its soil moisture from the data you’ve input into your timer, as well as the weather details. This also determines how much increase to reflect. The timer will usually fill it to around 100%. The moisture balance will not update in real time, it updates on a nightly basis. There is a maximum allowable depletion on each zone and that is what determines when the system needs to run again.
Bhyve uses weather information along with the information you’ve put into each zone to operate on Smart Watering.
