When a zone is running the Run Now button will change to Stop, allowing you to stop a running zone.

Suspending a zone

You can also stop a zone from running for an extended period of time by using the Suspend button on your Dashboard.

Zones can be stopped from running for up to a year and will be shown in your dashboard as partially greyed-out icons.

TIP! To cancel a zone that’s already suspended just click on the Suspend button again and choose the Cancel Suspension option. Once you’ve done this the zone will run at the next scheduled watering time.

Running a zone manually from your web browser or app

From the web or app Dashboard click or touch the zone icon you wish to run and click the Run button. Select the length of time to run the zone for and click OK.

The zone will start running within a few seconds.

Running all zones manually

You can also run all zones in sequence by clicking on the gear icon just above all the zones as shown below.

The zones can be run for a specified length of time or can run for their normal programmed time.

TIP! To stop a zone that is currently running just click on the Stop button on your dashboard.

Running all zones

It is also possible to run a full program without needing to run each zone individually.

To run all configured zones move your mouse to the Controller Status icon and press the Run button.

Zones can be run for the standard program time or a custom time.
