A Smart Program automatically calculates the most efficient watering schedule based on your zone profile, weather data, optional water restrictions, and your preferences for each zone.
Yardian's Smart Program is structured using the EPA WaterSense weather-based smart watering algorithm. When you create a zone in the app, the Smart Program kicks in as the default program and will take care of the calculations to make the optimal decision for your watering schedule.
You have the option to skip the watering tasks by applying "Skip Rules" based on Chance of Rain, Rain Sensor Skip, Manual Skip, and Freeze Prevention.
