Latest update fixed the zone naming issue. Thanks.
This product doesn't work. I get an error editing zone names. I can't change watering days. If I tell my Amazon Echo to "Tell Skydrop to water Backyard Garden 1" she says the zone doesn't exist. Scheduling works *if* you set it up through the web site and that is all that you use. I'm thinking about switching to Rachio. It costs a little more but it works.
For how expensive the controller is I would not buy it again. The app is constantly failing, when I first purchased it custom schedules would not work correctly and the 'smart watering' would constantly halt the watering of my new lawn despite having it switched off! Contacted support and received next to no help - the excuse, " we'll have the developers look into it". Never received a response. Now the second time round with the new "update" I can't even get access into the app! Have tried both iPhone and Android and both simply refresh the login screen. The website login doesn't work either! The only way to water now is by manually activating the controller... Do not waste your money. Get a different controller.
Skydrop is an amazing concept. The app works well, but sometimes disconnects from the cloud and needs to be re-started. Changes within the app sometimes take hours to sync with the controller, but once setup properly it works really well. I would love to see a wearable version for Samsung Gear smartwatches. Now that would be cool.
The controller says it's connected to the cloud, my app says it's disconnected. So guess what, it never waters anything. This is my second unit, I bought one of their first and it died. How dumb am I. Stay away from skydrop. Biggest POS ever
It will not allow me to edit the zones. It crashes whenever I try to click on a zone.
