Well, just a slight correction: the Zimmerman method calculation is actually done on the cloud server — OS receives a simple ‘watering percentage’ parameter from the cloud server. We are working on allowing the user to edit certain parameters and this is likely to be available in the next firmware update 2.1.5. The idea is to save user parameters on the OS side, and it will pass the parameters to the cloud server when it’s making the weather call. However, the calculation will still be done on the server side, partly to release OS from having to carry out this calculation, partly because this streamlines the handling of weather algorithms, allowing people to use new weather algorithms without firmware update.
