I currently have one device. A Zwave Dome valve and is installed and working manually through the iOS app.
I have 8 timers for garden and lawn and this one valve will be shut off for the day if things are wet enough already or high probability of rain.
I’d prefer not add sensors. And use past precipitation and forcast deciding if valve should be on for the day.
I bought the smartthings because I thought “it” was smart. Apparently I have to make it smart by coding it.
Is there a plug in I can use or buy that does anything close?
I know how to code. But I bought the dumb easy box so I drag and drop and answer some questions. But that doesn’t seem to be the case.
I did start an app from “when it rains” template and changed it to use a valve instead of window sensor.
The code for “if it rains” is nearly useless. It just looks for key works in current forecast.
But how do I open or close the valve?
And what is a better source for weather data (including past precipitation ideally).
