OK thanks that info was very helpful. Now I think I understand. I didn’t realize the app was pinging the WU directly for all the weather info and the controller only for the % watering factor.
I agree the controller seems to be having trouble connecting. It is able to talk on my local subnet ok (with some intermittent issues which was the subject of the other post), but it cannot seem to communicate with the Internet at all.
I will try to eliminate the wired Ethernet connection as a suspect next.
In the meantime, can you tell me if there is an easy way to verify if the controller can actually reach the Internet? I’ll try a few things as well…
Thanks for all your help.
