  • Setting up on HS3 for the first time - confused on 2 things

    I used MCSSprinklers under HS2, but am really looking for something simpler as I move to HS3, and I think BLRain8 should meet exactly what I need. But I have two questions:

    1. Under options, you set up the COM port, but there is a separate screen (Rain8 Units) to set up the controller. I'm a little confused here since to have more than one unit, wouldn't you need to use multiple COM ports? I guess it doesn't really matter for me since I only have one unit, but I am curious.

    2. More importantly for me, I don't see a way to rename the zones. I see the screen to change the icons and the screen to set up the schedule, but I don't see any way to rename them. In MCSSprinklers, I had "friendly" names for each zone like "Right Front Drip". I'm assuming this functionality exists and I'm just not seeing it.

    Thanks,
    Scott

    Only 1 com port is used because the Rain8Net units connect into each other.

    You should be able to rename the devices directly in the device management page
