  • There is already a driver for Skydrop, why make a new one?  This version supports all the same features the free one has and adds a better customer experience for controlling the irrigation.  
  • I want to 'shut-off' watering for 8 hours, how do I do that?  A few ways... Composer programming or use our custom single tap action 'Toggle Pause Watering' and simple tap the Skydrop icon to pause the watering for that party.
  • At the end of 2018, Skydrop ownership made the decision to discontinue operations. Due to this Skydrop introduced Skydrop Plus, a subscription service to provide additional features and better-quality weather data to all Skydrop customers. Funds from this service are used to maintain the cloud services and retain a single full-time customer support employee. The introduction of the service obligates Skydrop's past customers to pay for this subscription service even if their models worked without it in the past.  

As always, Cinegration Drivers come with the standard:
