Scene Automation Example - Cancel the scheduled watering for the WX1 Tap Timer when the Soil Moisture is greater than 50% and send an app notification when cancelled (must have a Smart Moisture Sensor attached)

Using your connected WX1 Tap Timer create an Automation scenario that cancels Start A/B/C if the Soil Moisture is > 50% and then sends an app notification.

Note: If your Smart Moisture Sensor threshold is set at 60% but you really want it to be 50% then use this example. This automation requires a Smart Moisture Sensor to be attached to the WX1 Tap Timer.

Note: Due to the WX1 to cloud communication required it may take from 30 seconds to 2 minutes to cancel the watering. If the Smart Moisture Sensor threshold is set to 60% then this automation will only be cancelling scheduled waterings when the Soil Moisture is between 50-60% as above 60% the system will ignore any scheduled waterings
