What's the best way to have my irrigation running for 10 minutes?

Hi guys!

I’m currently digging into automate my irrigation. Currently a simple automation turns it of after one hour.

As I was re-seeding my lawn I need to water it a few times a day for 10 minutes. Now I thought a button I. Lovelace would be great which basically turns on the irrigation for just 10 minutes.

I thought about a scene but somehow I got stuck. What would you suggest to get this going?

You could execute a script to start watering with a wait_template before stopping. You may want to add a time and date sensor if you don’t have one already for the wait_template

Sorry that was a little confusing from me. The sprinkler shouldn’t be toggled every 10 minutes. I need to have it running a few times a day for 10 minutes :slight_smile:

Thanks a lot Taras!

Indeed I already have this automation triggered by the entity switch. It shuts it off after one hour.

Is there a possibility to have basically a “blank button” ?

I sorted it out. I learned that there are helpers :slight_smile:

So I build with them a blank switch and put an automation behind it.

Thanks all for the support.
