So I use a Husqvarna Automower 450X to cut my grass. Husqvarna Automowers just got IFTTT integration. Unfortunately, it likes to eat my sprinkler heads causing damage to them. So now in IFTTT, I can send it to the charging station when a Rachio schedule starts.
The only problem is it takes it up to 20 minutes to get to the charging station so the active heads are in danger for up to 20 minutes. I need to send it to the charging station 20 minutes before a Rachio schedule (Flex daily) starts.
One way I can think to do this is to trigger a device (ie. an outlet connected to my Smartthings hub) using my Smartthings hub or IFTTT, 20 minutes before a Rachio schedule starts. I can then use IFTTT to tell the Automower to go to the charging station when the device is triggered.
How can I accomplish this? Can Smartthings or Rachio trigger a device 20 minutes before a schedule starts? Is there another way to do this?
