I’m just curious, and not trying to throw rocks or anything, because I too am new to the Rachio world. So, please forgive my lack of knowledge.
Should it not be good enough to put my gen 2 controller in Standby mode for the winter season? In my way of thinking, this should disable all schedules.
I can see the advantage of being able to selectively turn off a schedule too. For instance, I don’t want to water the grass in the winter, but I do want to occasionally water the foundation of the house. So, in this instance, to accomplish my goal, I am thinking that I would not put the system in Standby. Should I not just turn off the schedules for watering the lawn?
I guess my question then becomes, “Why put the unit in Sandby and also turn off all schedules individually?”
