    Hi,

    I have recently installed my B-Hyve Smart Controller here in Western Australia where we have strict rules on how we can water. From what I have heard a lot of your recent updates have accommodate some of these rules (such as a ‘turn off’ period for our yearly no watering months). Another one of these rules is that we are only allowed to water once a day between certain hours, however I notice the smart watering schedule always wants to make sure it waters all of my zones twice back to back. For example I want to water roughly 20mins for zone 1, 10mins zone 2, 20mins zone 3 and 10mins zone 4. It will do the following smart water schedule in my calendar:

    1. Smart Watering 1
    – 6:00AM Zone 1: 10mins
    – 6:10AM Zone 2: 5mins
    – 6:15AM Zone 3: 10mins
    – 6:25AM Zone 4: 5mins
    2. Smart Watering 2
    – 6:30AM Zone 1: 10mins
    – 6:40AM Zone 2: 5mins
    – 6:45AM Zone 3: 10mins
    – 6:55AM Zone 4: 5mins
    – 7:00AM Finished.

    Why does it do this instead of at 6:00AM giving Zone 1 its full 20min watering? I am sure I wouldn’t get stung by the Water Corporation for this as watering more than once a day seen as it is back to back, but it is just weird and feels like a glitch in the smart watering. It also feels like the more frequent actuating of my solenoid valves will create further ware and tare and shorten their product life.

    Spread the love!
