It’s really important to understand how timers work and how to enable it. Once you have entered into the programming mode holding the Home icon , remember to click/tap your component icon to enable or disable the irrigation. We have prepared an example to better understand it, the green icon will activate the irrigation system while red will deactivate it.

Well done, keep learning!
