Why are you using the API?

I have seen several people in this forum, but only see one use that is fairly obvious what they are using it for:

I am thinking of using the API to:

  1. Expand the functionality of Google Assistant using the API and IFTTT
  2. I may look into automating rotating through zones in a schedule so each zone does not run at the same time each day during the hottest time of the year
  3. I would like to be able to, if the API documentation is updated, take a KML of my zones and sprinklers heads that I already have created, convert it, and upload the data into Rachio

When I have completed each, I will consider posting the “recipe” so others may be able to do the same thing.
