Thanks Franz. I have some schedules int here I wouldn't want to program, but for now, it's good to know there is a work around.
Being able to do this manually will also be helpful for when blowing out sprinkler systems. I will keep my compressor going and just use my rachio to cycle through zones (while drinking on my deck). IT would be nice to delete this info after as it's not using any water.
PS. If you guys keeps adding features based on community response you are going to get an amazing product in the end. I just saw a company on shark tank that did this and they were growing like crazy because of it!. Keep it up. Maybe even add a voting section to determine what people want most and implent those features.
