Scene 1: "Rain"

Fibaro Home Center 2 - Scene 1.

If raining:
close roof windows - turn garden sprinklers OFF - set "it rained" variable to 1

Scene 2 "Turn garden sprinklers on at 6:00 am"

Fibaro Home Center 2 - Scene 2.

Each day at 6:00 am check if "it rained" (user defined variable):
If not ("it rained" variable = 0) - turn the sprinklers ON.

Example Scene 3 "Reset variable"

Fibaro Home Center 2 - Scene 3.

If "it rained" and 12 hours passed from that time:
set "it rained" variable value to 0

    Review by Octavioon 23/06/2016
    I have been using vera for my zwave controller for the past 4 years. I was going to upgrade to the vera edge, but after doing some research online I decided to go with the fibaro home centre 2. I am so glad I did, it is a country mile better than vera. Expensive but so worth it.
