    Unlocking and Locking

    To enable someone access to the panel of an OptiFlow enabled controller, it must first be Unlocked.

    From the Sites List page, use the Select button associated with the name of the site containing the OptiFlow enabled controller(s) you want to Unlock/Lock



    The Controller List page displays the Controllers found on the selected Site.

    Select the Controller Settings page button of the OptiFlow enabled controller you want Unlock/Lock.



    Select the Access tab to display the Access page. If the Controller supports the Unlock/Lock feature, it will be available under the Master Valve Override (MVO) button, as shown.




    Before Unlocking a Controller, make note of the other Controllers that will be affected in the list under the button. Unlocking a Controller will suspend any irrigation.



    Unlock a Controller by selecting the large Locked button and choose a duration (in minutes) you would like it unlocked for.



    Once Unlocked, the button will begin to display a count down (hr:min) of the selected amount of time, above "Resumes". The Controller will automatically Lock again when the time expires.
