Hi guys. Apologies if this has already been answered but was wondering if there was a way to switch the individual sprinklers between Auto/Off using a VD or similar so I can do it from the phone App? I'd like to be able to effectively disable my sprinklers during winter and only water automatically during summer. I know there is a good VD for the "Sprinkler Panel" (here: https://forum.fibaro.com/topic/21066-sprinkler-panel/?page=3#comment-146054) but I really want access to the Auto/Off mode selection. Thanks in advance.
Hello forum, I'm a newbie to Fibaro but not home automation (have been using X10 for some years and recently tried Insteon which I thought was a complete disaster!) I am now building up my Z-WAVE network and started with a Fibaro Home Center 2 and some Motion sensors, Wall Plugs, etc. One of the things I would like to be able to organise if automatic watering of my lawns. I currently use a normal watering computer but I am toying with the idea of using the HC2 to control that and have seen several articles on that, looks ok. I also recently bought a full Netatmo set (Indoor and outdoor sensors, wind sensor and rain sensor). I would love to be able to grab the readings from these sensors to drive the sprinklers. How do I do that? Am I going to have to learn LUA and create Virtual Devices to achieve that? Appreciate all and any feedback and advice! Regards
Hi to all I have my Sprinklers panels configure with 4 zones in the HCL (Fibaro Relay) . I've add a VCL to increase or stop the iirigation depending on the weather. But i'd like to received any notification if the system doesn´t work properly. The problem that I have is that sometimes the relay go to dead node status and if I do not check the system everyday I will have a problem. Could anyboy help me on this? Thanks in advanced
