Thanks, #1 and 3 make sense to me. As far as #2, that’s the problem, my internet was down so the cloud server couldn’t be reached. I was under the impression that the controller could still be used with no internet service? Doesn’t happen often but when it does I guess it’s an issue? I have the pre-built controller, the one that’s all ready to use from opensprinkler.org, so I’m using it stock with whatever scripts and web pages are built into it. Thanks for your help.
