  1. Can the wx8 controller be used as the hub for the wx1?
    I bought 2 extra wx1 for my mother in laws place but did not use them. I’d like to use them at my place but since she has the hub and I have (or will have soon) the wx8 I was wondering if I could just use that.

  2. I am struggling to set the different stations to start automatically at separate times, (example- Station 1 turn on @6:40 for 10 mins then station 2 start at 6:50 for 10 mins then station 3 to start at 7:00 for 10 mins).
    Every time I set the first station it works after saving then when setting station 2 & 3 the first 2 will cancel out and only the time set for the 3rd will work… Its like the save is not actually saving.

    1. Hi Brad, we are sorry you are having trouble with your controller. If you can get in touch with our customer service team and include your product code, they will be able to help you along with the start time process.

  4. Hi, can I control my Wi-Fi Garden Light Controller with Homekit or a smart switch (installed in the wall like a normal household light switch)?

    1. Hi Jimmy,

      Thanks for your questions. Unfortunately, our Wi-Fi Garden Light Controllers are not compatible with Apple Homekit. When using our controller, we suggest that you connect it to a power source that is not interrupted. If you use a smart switch to turn the controller off and on, you may experience some connection issues between the controller and the Holman Home app. There is a wide range of scheduling options already available on Holman Home that will allow you to turn your lights on and off as needed. Please let us know if you have any other questions, Dayna.

    1. Hi Charles, you can use Siri to control some aspects of the WX1 Tap Timer, however, you will still need to go into the app to set up smart automations.
