I guess it depends on whether you are on flex daily or other…flex daily could change right before a run time depending on whether patterns. I don’t think I’ve ever seen it push forward, but certainly it has skipped or shifted later…
IFTTT might be a thing if the API passes future schedules thru, but I can’t say for sure.
Can you please advise if there has been any progress on implementing something like this? Since I have my controller set to start watering a few hours before dawn I would like the ability to receive notifications 6-8 hours before watering starts so that I can do a manual skip or take some other action if needed. It seems like it would be easy enough to add a field where users could select how much advanced notice they would like. I would say this is a very sorely needed improvement.
Would really appreciate this feature as well, seems like it wouldn’t be too difficult for Rachio to implement…? I don’t know how to use IFTTT, but if that is a workaround, any support there would be welcome as well
I just looked into it, IFTTT won’t work (as far as I can tell) because the pre-defined ‘events’ (triggers) don’t have planned events listed, only actual events. For example it has ‘schedule started’ as a trigger but not ‘schedule planned within 18 hours’, so there isn’t a trigger that would activate before the actual watering starts.
Not sure who defines these triggers, is it Rachio? Can Rachio add a trigger for ‘schedule planned in 18 hours’ or something similar?
