I had a customer call this evening with an interesting problem. He has a system using an ESP-8si and he wanted to know if it can be paused. He explained that, oh, around the zone 7 start, which is in the back yard, his dog wakes up and has to go out right then. I guess he does not hear them until the back starts, that's his alarm clock. So the customer has to shut down the system to let the dog out. He has either been losing the rest of zone 7 and 8, or he has been restarting the whole thing. He just wants to pause it for 5 minutes or so while the dog is doing his business. I started to tell him to just shut it down at that point, then manual start/advance it back to zone 7 when the dog comes in. But I figured I would check to see if any of you knew if this controller could be paused or put on hold without affecting the current program. I can't even seem to locate a manual for and ESP right now. If there is no way to accomplish this, maybe a toggle switch on the common ground to the valves would give him this control. Of course he would lose a few minutes as the controller would still be going, but I think he could adjust in a few extra to compensate.
