Some cities around here have watering police that look for people in the middle of the night. We typically have 2 days a week we can water and it is based on odd even addresses. They do not want anyone watering on Wednesdays and weekends so they can recharge the water towers.
I advise people to only water based on the restrictions even when not active. I tell them to manually activate additional runs of they want more water but leave the times alone. Use the global increase or decrease based on a schedule I give. Let the rain freeze sensor do it's job. Will be adding some soil moisture sensors this spring as I like the idea for home owners.
