The pipes for the sprinkler system run through the wall of our master bedroom, and they’re kind of noisy. I’d love to push the watering time back an hour or two on weekends so I can sleep in. I’m wondering if I can use the rain delay function in the API? IFTTT will let me delay by an integer number of days, but it looks like the API will let me delay by an arbitrary number of seconds.
I think I can cobble together a Python script on a Raspberry Pi to make the necessary calls. A few questions:
- I assume the delay starts immediately after the call?
- If I request, say, a 2 hour delay 30 minutes before the scheduled watering time, I assume the watering will proceed as usual, but 90 minutes later?
