    Hmm, we never send notifications for manually started/stopped things, as you already know what you did. Maybe we can add as an option which you turn on on notification settings.

     

    Going to move this to Enhancements category so we can keep track.

    Fair comment so agree this  be moved to enhancement instead. 2 scenarios this would be of value:

     

    a) You hit the wrong one inadvertently and then see the notification, opportunity to correct

    b) Someone else fires something off - good to know

    Just to add justification for this, I had put a snooze on for today due to a lot over night rain and no need to water (it planned to based on program). When I kicked off the snooze manually I also inadvertently fired off the program and wasn't till a little later i found the first zone was on. Had the notification been sent upon manual operation I'd have sene it and stopped sooner.

    Any idea when this will be implemented? Another manual operation by someone today and would have been good to get a notification

    Ian, hello
    I understand you :)
    For me is simple. I have only one device and I wanted to be notified when my kids or my wife starts one of my zones manually.
    I set an IFTTT applet for each of my zones and I get an email each time a zone is starting. Of course, it would be nice to have an IFTTT trigger when the RainMachine starts to water, no matter what zone, but you can't have both :) Also, I need to know precisely what zone has started.
    It works for me.

    Thanks,
    Jerry

    Thanks but you shouldn't need to set up an IFTTT function, the device already sends notifications of everything it does, it simply needs to be enabled to do so when it triggers programs or zones manually.
