Wifi smart controller with one touch to run several zones in a row

I'm looking at getting a smart controller so that I can run the water in the back yard after the dogs have gone out to pee, to help with the brown spots. What I'm looking for is an app on my phone with a single button to run several zones in a row. All the ones I've looked at allow manual programming, but you have to put in each zone by hand. The back yard has three zones, so I'd like one easy option to say "run zones 4, 5, 6 for 2 minutes each" without having to put in three zones worth of info each time I want to run that program. Is there a smart controller that will make this easy?

My Bluespray controller takes 3 steps to do this after logging in. Click on the "Water Now" button, select the program (one that you would have preset for the 3 zones, 2 mins each) and click OK.

Rachio will allow you to select all zones and the amount of time you want to water them, but it is the same amount of time for all zones
