Can I water two or more zones simultaneously?

Yes and no.  There is currently no way to automatically set your schedule, or multiple schedules, to run more than one zone at the same time.  If you feel this should be a feature please let us know and we’ll research this more.

Meanwhile, you can manually have more than one zone running at the same time by going to “Water Zones”, select your first zone and then select the number of minutes you want to manually run that zone.  Then back in the Manual Watering page select another zone to water and the number of minutes.  Both zones should now be green on the app and running simultaneously.

While you can turn on multiple zones at the same time, Spruce can only supply about 900mA of power at a time.  If the current exceeds threshold, the valve will turn back off automatically to avoid an over-current condition.  A message indicating the high current will be in the event log.  Typically 3 valves can be turned on at the same time, this will include a master valve if your system uses a master valve.
