    I have the indoor Bhyve model, and have a couple of years with it under my belt. There are a couple of things I think would help out.
    1) Add rotator sprinklers to the list of sprinkler types. I took me a while to figure out that I needed to change the application rate under Advanced Settings. I think the default setting is 1.75, but my rotator heads roughy .4-.8. That’s a huge difference in run time.
    2) Under lawn type, add a choice for either existing or new lawns, and add sod, seed, or plugs. You might even add over seeding.
    3) I’d like to see an in-ground moisture sensor similar to the Toro® XTRA SMART™ Precision™ Soil Moisture Sensor, but I don’t know if WiFi or wireless would be better. My system will put itself in a 24-rain delay, and then we’ll get little to no rain. The weather here in Aurora, CO is highly localized. So, one part of my zip code might get an inch of rain, but I’ll get nothing. There have been times that this has happened for 2-3 days in a row, and in our semi-arid climate that can stress the grass. I think a moisture sensor would make the system more plug and play for the layman. It would take out the guess work of determining soil type, degree of slope, etc. I’d be happy to test it out for you!
