To water my garden I use a Rainbird controller with Wifi link.
I know that it is possible to control the Rainbird via an API. Unfortunately, there is no Homey app for that and I do not have the knowledge to create one.
There is an integration made for Home Assistant and something is made for PyRainbird.
I am trying something now with an 8 channel relay card and an ESP with Tasmota.
Controlling the valves goes without any problems. What I can’t figure out is the following:
If I want to operate a valve manually, I want to be able to specify a time (in minutes that the valve should be active). So actually being able to set a time for the hourglass.
Does anyone know if there is a solution for this within Homey to enter or select a number before the flow continues?
I thought I could use a virtual dim button (there are no visual numbers) or a virtual thermostat (can only be used between 5-50) . Maybe some slider wil work where you van define a min and max. i.e. 0 - 120 min.
Any help, support or suggestion is welcome.
