I looked around the forum but couldn’t find anything that related to my question. I have a Rachio 2 with 6 zones, professionally installed. It really works good and the Flex Schedule (once I figured out how it all works) seems to work pretty well.
I’m trying something new out. Rather than have a raised bed garden, I am literally using a raised bed. I found a perfect metal twin bed frame and have 5 big ceramic pots for tomatoes. I’m getting a simple DIY drip watering kit from Amazon and I could add a simple watering timer that hooks up to the outdoor faucet but what would really do the trick would be if I could add something, like a 7th zone (wiring) that actually goes to some other device to turn on and off the meter/controller at the faucet. I should add that I have a pretty good home automation system set up with Home Assistant (HA) and the Rachio is integrated into it. If I could add a water schedule for the faucet/water hose based drip system, I’d be in geek heaven. I’m a retired IT network and security guy. What I’m saying is that I can handle wifi/Z-Wave/Zigbee/BLE/ etc, and even some python scripting.
So, who out there has done some cool DIY addons that could point me in the right direction?
Thanks in advance,
