Run Single Station Manually for x Minutes?


#1

Is there a way to run one specific station manually, for a certain amount of time without creating a schedule?


#2

Yes. See http://support.rachio.com/article/148-manually-run-zones-and-schedules

Thanks, yes I saw that article but I was wondering if there’s a way to run a single station without setting up a schedule for each station individually and just disabling it?

I think you must have misread the linked article: the section headed ‘Manually Run Zones’ has a screen shot of the Rachio app with an arrow pointing to a blue button on the screen. Press that button and it takes you to a screen where you can select one or more zones, select watering time(s) for the zone(s) and set them going.

Thanks! Yes, I did miss that the top bar that says “All Zones” is a drop-down menu where you can select a specific zone and then set the time.

That’s what I needed!

Yes, it is indeed hard to see. A simple change in coloring of the dropdown icon will make it more visible and obvious that that is a pick list vs simply a title.
