Is this capability available on any OS hardware? Has this been discussed previously; I couldn’t find anything.
My watering requirements change dramatically over a 12 month period. With my V1.4X hardware and FW V1.8.3, I usually resorted to editing rather than have a bunch of disabled programs that can’t be named to describe their use.
With the V2.3 HW that I recently bought, I can easily make Summer, Winter, and InBetween schedules that I can recognize, but they still have to be manually turned ON or OFF throughout the seasons. It would be nice to enable each program over a range of dates, and have seasonal programs that are linked and activate automatically. In the low-desert climate that I live in (7 in. rain/year), adjustment by weather conditions borders upon being worthless, while there is a significant savings in water that can be made by seasonal adjustments. With the 6 irrigation circuits that I have, using linked seasonal programs would allow it to work throughout the year with almost zero manual intervention.
That’s an interesting suggestion. So basically you want the program enable to be associated with a date range. This is certainly doable but will involve some UI changes, as well as increasing the program data size. I’ve put it on the todo list, but I suspect this will be a low priority as I don’t know if this feature is widely needed.
I’d like to up-vote this too…
Currently I do pretty much the same as Oleengr with multiple season tagged programs and manually enable/disable as and when.
I do use the water level calculations, which are great, but still prefer different overall scheduling for our different seasons…
