Preconfigured Watering Schedules allow you to group together zones with identical watering properties. Each Preconfigured Watering Schedule determines how long a group of zones will run and how the schedule should be modified based on your local weather. Zones will water only at your defined Program Start Times.
Setting a preconfigured watering schedule
Please view the steps and screenshots to access this feature:
- Navigate to the "Zones & Schedules" in your Hydrawise account on the dashboard
- Click on "Preconfigured Watering Schedule."
- Add a "Schedule name" and choose a "watering type." The example below will be the most common which is Time Based.
- Finally, add watering length, frequency, and the predictive watering adjustments.
- Click "OK."
Watering Schedules can be used for zones that are running either Time-Based Predictive Watering or Smart Watering. However, for Smart Watering zones the Schedule Adjustment option in a preconfigured Watering Schedule is not used. For more information, see Configuring Irrigation Zones.
Fields in Preconfigured Schedule
|Schedule Name||This is the name of the Watering Schedule|
|Run Time||This is the watering time for this landscape type under normal conditions (if it is too hot or cold, this value will be automatically adjusted)|
|Watering Frequency||How often this schedule needs to run|
Assigning to Start Time
It is best practice to assign the preconfigured schedule to a start time without adding the zones that are tied to a preconfigured schedule as well. You will see in the example below that you can assign multiple schedules to a start time.
