If the controller loses its internet connection for more than 24 hours, you’ll receive a notification email.
The controller will then go into offline mode. In offline mode, your controller won’t be able to access local weather conditions such as rainfall or evaporation. As a result, it will revert to a predefined program.
- For Smart Watering zones, the controller will adjust each zone’s watering length based on your offline watering budget and will water at each zone’s configured peak watering frequency.
- For Time-Based Watering zones, the controller will adjust each zone’s watering length based on your offline watering budget and will water at each zone’s configured watering frequency.
- Note that Cycle and Soak is not supported in offline mode and each zone will water for its full watering length without pausing.
- The controller will only water at your configured Program Start Times.
