I live in Gilbert, AZ. I have a Rachio 2. I set up my zones for the grass areas to what the landscaper wants for seed germination (start @ 6:00am, run hourly for 2 minutes/zone, end at 6:00pm). When I look at the calendar times, it starts at 12:00am! I’ve tried adjusting the the time from start at specific time to end before to specific time to start after sunset to end before sunrise. None of the Times give me the desired effect described above. Cycle and Soak is set to Smart Cycle. Interval is set to every hour. Type is set to Fixed Schedule. Help Please!
I’m also in Gilbert!
While a bit more involved to set up, I highly recommend setting up individual fixed schedules for each run time. I personally think hourly is a bit much, but if that is what you landscaper wants, so be it.
The good thing about setting up individual fixed schedules is that as the weeks pass, you can delete the schedules (or simply disable for next season) as the seed starts to germinate and grow. After 3-4 weeks, you can delete/disable all fixed schedules and return to your normal watering schedule.
Thank you so much!!! It’s been a real pain in my schedule to run each zone for 2 minutes each hour.
