Rain Bird ESP8 - Goes on Randomly

I have my timer set to go on once a week (Saturday at 5am). I happened to be home last Friday and at about 11:30am I noticed the system came one. The timer and the clock were set appropriately. I asked one of my neighbors who happened to be home if she had noticed my system coming on during the week and she said it had noticed it a few times. Any idea why the system would just come on randomly? I checked all of my settings and I could not find anything that would lead to this. Thanks in advance.

Reboot the controller and program it from scratch. User error is the overwhelming choice for watering cycles occurring at the wrong times.

Reboot as in unplug - clear it out and start over?

You probably have a second start time programmed.

To reset the controller unplug it and take out the back up battery. Let it sit for 5 minutes. Replace n reprogram.
