    Hello,
    I have posted a similar topic on the topic named “External Rain Sensor – No delay” but I got confused, anyway.
    For the last week I had the external rain sensor set OFF and it rained a lot each day in the last 5 days.

    Smart Rain Delay set, but not actioning

    Please check the image above representing a Print Screen from my phone where it is seen that last evening @23:28 I had received a notification that “A 24 hour rain delay has been suggested by B-hyve based on the forecast.” and then in the morning I have received the “Watering Complete” notification for my scheduled programs, meaning that the Rain Delay did not delay the daily scheduled programs.

    I want to stress that last year the Smart Watering rain delays were functioning OK, but this spring and summer I haven’t had ANY delay from the Smart Rain Delays.

    The firmware of the B-Hyve is at the latest version and also the version on my phone B-Hyve app seems to be the latest one.

    Please let me know if I set something wrong or if there is any known bug that might be solved in the next firmware release.

    Thank you!

    DiliMe, I’ve take a look at your timer and smart watering has been disabled for your device as a whole, and you said your rains sensor was turned off. So the only way you’ll receive a rain delay is if you manually enter it from the app or from the actual timer.

    Hi Ryan,
    Sorry but I’ve been out of town for couple of days.

    Yes, you are true, Smart Watering was not functioning at all because I was not having it enabled to any of the zones. I will check if it will work by just having it enabled to 1 of the 6 zones.

    My problem with Smart Watering is that it is overwatering, for what I consider it would be enough, and I was not able to tweak the settings so that it does not overwater. I will check to tweak the shadow and other advanced settings so that it equals to my expectations.
    Another problem with Smart Watering is that I cannot change the proposed time of the programs for watering. Maybe you can explain me how to change this.

    Thank you!

    Ok, you will want to edit each zones watering schedule adjustments page. Which is found under smart details. In that setting It will have two slide bars. the Runtime adjustment slide bar will change the runtime witch is displayed above under estimated duration. The interval Adjustment slide bar will adjust the amount of days in between each scheduled watering. This will be displayed under estimated intervals in a calendar format. Showing you how many days between each scheduled watering day for each month. You may need to adjust it a couple of times before it shows exactly the settings that you’d like. Once set the new settings will become your standard or your 0%/middle mark on your slide bars, for the next time you enter this setting.

    Also to set a time for your smart watering programs to run you can go to the programs section of your app, and then click on the smart watering lightbulb icon. then tap on suggested start time to set a time when you’d like it to start. You can also under smart watering restrictions set when your timer is allowed to run. You can also sect what days of the week to water, or set it to water on even or odd days of the month. However the smart watering restrictions, and suggested start time is for your device as a whole. So in other words cannot be set for zones on an individual basis.

    Please just let us know if you have any further questions, or are in need of any other assistance. we’d be happy to help!

    OK, I understood it now.
    I’ve been induced in error by the Interval Adjustment slider as I haven’t realized that the slider modifies the estimated days interval between watering each time you modify it, so you have to make modification, exit and return (sequentially) until you receive what you want for your zones.

    In my opinion it is not very straightforward the way it is designed now.

    But now, at least I understood.

    Best regards!
