Zone/master valve fault detection


#1

We are happy to announce a new feature that will help detect faulty zones or master valve.

What is a “Fault detected” notification?

This feature automatically detects electrical faults, which are typically caused by wiring issues. When the controller experiences a fault on a zone (or the master valve) we restart the controller, send a push notification to your mobile phone, and add an event to your activity feed.

The controller activity feed will include the zone number (or master valve) that faulted and the time of day the fault occurred.

Example activity feed

Will this feature in the future include an open circuit issue?

There are lots of times where wires get cut by landscapers, cable installers, or homeowners.

Some controllers on the market now do a milliamp pretest for each circuits continuity to detect an open circuit.
