    Pause button or something to that nature

    Is there a way to perhaps pause the watering? Like I have some people delivering furniture today and I would like to just be able to ask Alexa to pause sprinklers for a period. Or from my phone.

    I am thinking maybe a virtual device that is from voice control I can toggle to trigger an event?

    There should be a device called Inhibit By User that will do what you need. You may need to change settings (in each Area IIRC) such that the cycle immediately stops on Inhibit, as opposed to completing the cycle.


      On the Zone Status page there is a Pause control in the upper left of the page. It is also on the Touch pages as well as on the General Status Device S26. S26 can also be controlled from the HS Devices page or events.

      A technique I use to inhibit auto irrigation while still maintaining ability to do manual irrigation is to use the Site Setup page inhhibit odd days and event days checkboxes. Other site inhibits can be used in a similar manner.
