Orbit (Iris Zigbee) Hose Timer

I was able to score an Orbit Iris Zigbee Hose Valve on eBay! It works great. I am using the built-in driver and I can open valve from the dashboard. I have it set to run for 60 minutes before auto-off. What I found though is that after it auto-offs, it does not update it's state on the dashboard. It still shows open, or blue. Anybody else run into this?

Haven’t seen that happen on either of mine.

Are you using hubitat dashboard? Regular valve tile?

Is the device you are using to display the dashboard older? Does the state of all devices get "stuck", until you manually refresh?

If so you could try adjusting the 'LAN Refresh' rate in the dashboard options. I found setting the refresh to 60 seconds made my older iPad refresh better. When it was set at 2 seconds it would not refresh after 10 minutes unless I did it manually. Trying making changes to that settings and see if your device plays nicer.

In the end I made a 'duplicate' dash by coping the entire JSON, to the "old iPad dash". This lets me keep the faster refresh rate on the newer units, and slower refresh rate on the old ones that need it.

@aaiyar I know you barely use dashes but that icon needs love.:smiling_face_with_three_hearts: It so tiny, but then again my wife would think it was "so cute" :laughing:
