I'm trying to figure out a way to pause a program "mid-zone" programmatically (I'm using the REST API and curl for this). I have 6 active zones controlled by a Touch HD-12 with latest firmware. Here is an example of what I'm trying to accomplish:
1) my daily program starts, and Zone 1 is starts watering (running). This zone is set to run for 30 minutes.
2) after 10 minutes, my home automation system detects that my clothes washing machine has started. At this point, I would like to pause the currently running zone 1 until the washer is done (about 30 minutes) and then resume watering when it's done (and then kick off the rest of the programmed zones as per a normal watering cycle).
What would be the best API command to accomplish this pause? Would setting and then unsetting a restriction work? Or snoozing? (I don't see a way to snooze the watering via the API).
Thanks in advance
