Watering twice a day

How do I set up a daily schedule for a zone that waters at 7am and 7 pm daily?

The only way to currently do that is setup two schedules with two start times. The great thing about that is they will each be able to take advantage of our weather intelligence features at different times per/day.


Is there a way to schedule a interval watering of every 12 hours?

Not currently. Hourly supports up to every 6 hours.


So, I live in the desert southwest–hot dry. I could water my hanging plants say 2 minutes every six hours?

Yes, our hourly schedule allows for that.


How do I have a planter water twice a day? I have a Rachio 3

Set up two Fixed schedules that water just one zone, with all ‘smart’ features disabled. Choose times that don’t conflict with your regular schedules.

This is disappointing. The task of repeating a schedule multiple times per day is tedious at best.

I switched to Rachio from a 25-year-old Toro controller. It let me tell the system to repeat a schedule at any time of day I wanted.

I bought the Rachio assuming someone had spent time on usability of the software. When do you plan to do that?

It’s even worse. For a Flex schedule, I have to click the minus button on the watering times over and over again. This is going to take hours.
