Once again fighting with this device. Forecast is a solid week of rain and this shows in the calendar in the app. But still it decides to turn the sprinklers on for a solid 3 hours (with again the majority of the water ending in the drain)!
But what is worse is that I can’t even turn it off unless I pull the plug. The app shows that the sprinklers are off while they are clearly on. In the end I found that the web application does know that the sprinklers are on and this way I could intervene.
The sprinklers were on for 3 hours but nothing shows in the app calendar.
I have many home automation devices in use but have not seen a device with more bugs than this system. Looks like Orbit sold some early prototypes and forgot to fix things afterwards.

Spread the love!
