Looking forward to seeing this firmware.

I have all of my zones for my "standard" nozzles in one program. All of my drip lines are in a separate program.  As long as I am able to create a delay for all zones in a given program,t hen I will be good.

When will this be included in the newest firmware?

We don't have a master value on our system.

But yes, what I need is to be able to inject a specified delay between zones and then specify which zones it should be applicable to.

For example Zones 1-13 I want to run for 15 minutes each however have a 10 minute delay between each zone executing.  So, Zone 1 runs, completes, the system waits 10 minutes, Zone 2 runs, completes, the system waits 10 minutes, etc. 

However for Zones 14-15-16 I don't need a delay, so they should run in succession without a wait.  Perhaps allow a variable to be set for the delay time and then have a checkbox next to each zone something like "Apply Zone Delay after this zone runs" or something?

We are going to start watering soon and this feature would be VERY helpful.

Did this feature get pushed in the 1.2.2 release?  My controller is actually showing the current version available as 1.2.3.  Is there another forthcoming release?  Would really like to see this feature included.  For those on well-based systems it's absolutely crucial.  :-\

Really sad to see this didn't make it into 1.2.1.

Yes I understand the concept. I was just saying that doing it at the programs level gives you more flexibility.

On our Hunter controller it was set globally; The intent was to allow a well system to replenish itself between zone runs.  So I would think that a global setting would be fine for a delay between zones from that regard.

That said, if you make it per program then I can change it on each program.  The only program where it becomes an issue is the "Full-program" / "Long-run" type programs that really tax our well.  The shorter programs to water the flowerbeds and whatnot probably don't need the delay so it may actually be better to offer it per program, and gives you extra value-add over the Hunter controllers.  :D

So, maybe an option under "Time unit" on each program page called "Zone delay" or something?

Is that the only new feature? Was *really* hoping for the set delay between zones?

Looks like the controller is pooched according to James and can be replaced under warranty.

Feature Request / Re: user configurable static ip

What I do for this is to set a DHCP reservation based on the MAC address of the bluespray box.  Then you can assign a dedicated IP address to it and even register it in DNS if you wish.

Help / Green and Amber lights on solid - device not functioning
« on: June 27, 2014, 04:26:58 pm »
When I power up my BlueSpray I now get the amber and green lights on solid with no blue lights ever appearing.  I attempted to place the unit into service mode so that I could connect directly to the 'bluespray' SSID however that didn't show up either after the 30 seconds had elapsed after the switched was moved down.

When I slid the switch back up, all three lights now illuminate solid until I unplug it again and plug it back in at which time the green and amber lights once again go solid.

I'm afraid the unit may be bricked.

Thanks for your reply.  Yeah, I'm at 18 zones right now and wouldn't be able to do this.  Hopefully this makes it into a future firmware release soon.

Feature Request / Delay between zones

I have an irrigation system driven by a well. Unfortunately, the water in the well does not replenish as fast as I would like. Our old Hunter Pro*C controller allowed us to insert a delay time between the execution of each zone and this allowed the well to basically "catch up" and run the full cycle without losing pressure on the sprinkler (and the house!)

Is it possible to have a variable that can be set that would allow a time to be inserted between each zone running to accomplish this?

From Hunter's manual:

Programmable Delay Between Stations
This feature allows the user to insert a delay between when
one station turns off and the next station turns on. This is
very helpful on systems with slow closing valves or on pump
systems that are operating near maximum flow or have slow
well recovery.
1. Start with the dial in the RUN position.
2. Press and hold the k button while turning the dial to the
RUN TIMES position.
3. Release the k button. The display
will show a delay time for all
stations in seconds.
4. Press the j and k buttons
to increase or decrease the delay time between 0 and 59
seconds in 1 second increments and then in one minute
increments up to four hours. Hr will be displayed when the
delay changes from seconds to minutes and hours. Maximum
delay is 4 hours.
5. Return the dial to the RUN position.
