Please note:
At this time, Alexa is unable to recognize Zone or Valve Names.
When using the Alexa RainCloud Skill, you must refer to the Zones by Zone Number.
When using more than one Valve, Alexa will prompt you to clarify which Valve number.
If this Name Recognition becomes available we will work to incorporate this additional skill.
