These are all GREAT suggestions.
1. This was how I expected the Smart Watering feature to function. It is almost useless in its current form. I have had too many occassions where we had saturating rain and then the B Hyve kicked in and started a water cycle. Moreover, I have had occassions where the B Hyve starts watering and it is still raining.
2 & 3. I like this idea. Bad comm is infrequent for me but aggravating when it happens.
4. Agreed on all points.
