How to Create Alerts

You can create alerts to keep you up to date on what’s happening with your controllers.

Alerts can be created to track water flow or detect faulty solenoid wiring.

Alert Types

Alert Type Description Requirement
High water usage for a zone Set a percentage to generate an alert when a zone’s water usage rate is higher than the previous time the zone ran. Flow Meter
Low water usage for a zone Set a percentage to generate an alert when a zone’s water usage rate is lower than the previous time the zone ran. Flow Meter
High water usage with no zones running

Set a number of liters/gallons to generate an alert when that amount of water usage is detected and no zones are running.

This alert is typically generated within five minutes of the event happening.

Flow Meter
High water usage over the past hour with no zones running

Set a number of liters/gallons to generate an alert when that amount of water usage was detected over the previous hour and no zones are running.

This alert is typically generated each hour and can be useful for detecting slow water leaks.

Flow Meter
Interrupted water usage over the last hour with no zones running

Set a number of liters/gallons to generate an alert when the average water use in the last hour is less than that amount.

This is most useful if you have zones that run every hour.

This alert is typically generated each hour and can be useful for detecting slow water leaks.

Flow Meter
Wiring short (high current) to your solenoid Generate an alert for high solenoid current when a zone is running, which may be caused by faulty wiring or faulty solenoid valve. Controller supporting solenoid current measurement
Broken wire to your solenoid Generate an alert when there is no solenoid current when a zone is running, which may be caused by broken wiring or nonexistent solenoid valve. Controller supporting solenoid current measurement

Alert Actions

Add Event to Event Log Add the alert to your event log, which you can view under Reports.
Send App Notification Send a notification to any Apple or Android device you have the Hydrawise app installed on. Note: If you see "App not validated" in the drop-down list, that means you have not logged into any valid device using your Hydrawise app. You need to log into your Hydrawise app at least once on the device before the notification can be sent to that device.
Send SMS Notification Send an SMS to the specified mobile number (this feature requires an Enthusiast Plan).
