    i know you have promised (back in 2018) of a feature that would tie the hose faucet timers together….. still waiting on that. so now i’d like to up the offer to WHAT DO I NEED TO BUY TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN?!

    sincerely… a person that has invested quite a bit to only be let down.

    You can’t. Each timer is it’s own “thing” and they cannot be integrated into a single schedule where each timer knows not to run when other timers are running (zones).

    Yup, it sucks, I know. They’ve been promising this for years and I doubt it will ever happen.

    I spoke with someone at Orbit tech support when I was having another issue. It seems the hub really doesn’t do anything. It’s just a dumb data forwarder. The timers have all the smarts in them and they just use the hub to send and receive data from the internet. I guess trying to move all this information to the hub is proving more difficult than they thought.

    The hub is not needed for this, I think. What they need is the capability in the software to group different timers together. There doesn’t seem to be anything required in hardware for this to happen.

    But the software is altogether so confusing and crappy that I wouldn’t (don’t) hold my breath. For me, it’s still the least bad solution out there, but I can’t say it’s a good solution — mostly because of the crappy software.

    They have promised it’s on the top of their list nearly a year ago. I hope it’s not an empty promise because I’ve now bought more devices and finished my yards using these devices (difficult access of wires and water to the sites with my old property and existing foundations everywhere, means that these devices are a good solution for me. But I have to set the different areas to turn on at 1 am, 2 am, 3 am, 4 am, 5 am, so that they don’t interfere with each other.
