    I fully agree! After some weeks of proper function, the Rainmachine does not water anymore, although it says it does. A reboot solves this issue too. Also I cannot enter the interface for a remote reboot at that time.

    I don't know which RainMachine you have, but have you looked to see of it has cron?  The Pro unit does and you can configure and enable cron for it to perform a reboot on the schedule you set.

     

    Alternatively you could also buy a timer and have it power cycle the unit as well.

    I have a HD12 touch, I did not find any reboot scheduler. But it would be great if there is such feature already implemented!

    Regular power cycling does not sound good for the microprocessor, so I skip that option.

    I believe the Touch uses Android.  Vanilla Android does have cron, have you used Google and searched for cron android and follow the directions to see if it works for you?
