I have finally gotten the beta dashboard to implement four waterings in a single day. Each watering of 9 zones lasts for 2 hours and 50 minutes.
Previously, watering times were restricted to before 0930 and after
2130. In this case, the Forecast listed the watering times in this order: 1830, 2120, 0010, 0300. In this setting, only one watering occurred, at 0010, which was insufficient to maintain water levels.
Now, watering times are restricted to before 1230 and after 1830. In this case, the Forecast lists the watering times in this order: 0030, 0320, 0610, 0900. In this setting, four waterings occurred, as desired.
I would like to be able to restrict the watering times to the previous settings, before 0930 and after 2130, to avoid watering In the heat of the day.
Do you think the peculiar order of the watering times in the previous setting is preventing more than one watering per day? I suspect this is a bug.Spread the love!June 15, 2018 at 5:45 pm #3310
@cawolfe39, are you using a custom program or smart watering? If it is smart watering then all you have to do is go to programs, and click on the smart watering on and then set your restrictions. you can enter an what times smart watering is not allowed to water during.Spread the love!June 15, 2018 at 10:59 pm #3367
You totally missed the point of my issue. Also, it should be obvious that I am dealing with Smart Watering, since Forecast watering times do not happen when running Programs. Did you understand that I am using the beta dashboard, not the app? I know how to set limits on watering times. The issue is that Smart Watering does not seem to be able to split watering start times with some before and some after the “blackout” time, and when this is needed, it forecasts watering start times in non-consecutive order, and this results in only one of the four start times causing a watering to occur. Read my original post more carefully.Spread the love!June 15, 2018 at 11:43 pm #3373
I’M SORRY BUT YOU’D BE SUPRISED WITH WHAT PEOPLE THINK THERE DOING WITH THRE TIMERS. just WANTED TO CLEARIFY. IF YOU SET THE SETTINGS TO BEFORE IT WILL HAVE FOR SCHEDULE WATERINGS THAT WORK. however SEEING AS IF YOU HAD RESTRICTIONS SET FOR INBETWEEN 0930 AND 2130 THE START TIMES 1830 AND 2120 SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN SCHEDULED. LEAVING YOU WHITH WHAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN TWO WARERINGS NOT ONE 0010 0300. iT SOUNDS LIKE YOU NEED A FIRMWARE UPDATE. if YOU PROVIDE US WITH YOUR MAC ADDRESS THEN WE CAN DO THAT FOR YOU.Spread the love!June 16, 2018 at 12:02 am #3377
