Usage

from raincloudy.core import RainCloudy
raincloudy = RainCloudy('username@domain', 'secret')

# list controllers linked with account

[<RainCloudyController: control_unit:abdcd1234 valve_unit:a123>]

# show valve unit battery status
raincloudy.controller.faucet_battery
99%

# 4 zones controlled per faucet
len(raincloudy.controller.faucet.zones)

# show details from zone1
raincloudy.controller.faucet.zone1
{
 'auto_watering': True,

    }
}


# set faucet name
raincloudy.controller.faucet.name = 'Outside Left'
raincloudy.controller.faucet.name
'Outside Left'

# enable automatic program for zone1
raincloudy.controller.faucet.zone1.auto_watering = True

# run water for 15 minutes on zone3
raincloudy.controller.faucet.zone3.manual_watering = 15

# set rain delay for 2 days on zone2
raincloudy.controller.faucet.zone2.rain_delay = 2

Current Limitations

  • Only 1 (one) controller is supported.
