I upload soil moisture readings to ThingSpeak and use the readings to start a zone on my OS. I included the command to start the irrigation in the Python script that uploads the readings to my ThingSpeak account. The OS API covers how to use the commands. Since I don’t want to miss an irrigation cycle if my internet connection is lost, I make sure to start watering even if the upload to ThingSpeak fails.
