Make Multiple Controllers Work Together Seamlessly


#1

My house has two separate irrigation controllers mainly due to proximity to the valves and wiring. I however view my system as one “unit”. Assuming these controllers are on the same physical network I would like to see things like…

  • zone schedule not conflicting between controllers
  • utilizing a single master valve connected to one controller to also work with the other controller
  • combined reporting

One idea would be to identify a single controller as a “master” (possibly the one with the master value attached) and the others as slaves. The software could then treat the zones as a single entity with the scheduling handled by the master and just utilizing the slaves to turn the zones off/on. Utilize notifications to handle situations where a master or slave is lost.

@rlynch‌ great feature and one we are working on. Don’t know if we’ll have it out this summer yet, but definitely on our roadmap.

@albaboun This is in our backlog for this year, after we release version 2.0 of our software (end of March) we will review the priority on this. It’s a killer feature, but will be a lot of work :wink: and we need to make sure our priority balance is in check.

Thanks!
