Rachio 3 and motion automation

Rachio 3 and motion automation

Every night, raccoons come to us and destroy our new lawn. I think I have the plan of attack, but we are missing an element of strategy. We have the Rachio 3 smart sprinkler system that has HomeKit integration. I just bought the Eufy pro security cameras that securely reconnect to the HomeKit. Finally, we have the house integrated with Lutron Box lighting switches. Currently, we have a HomeKit automation that is triggered when the security camera detects movement, the outdoor terrace and the string lights come on. Unfortunately, this explosion of light scares the creatures. I hope a genius here can help me start the grassy area in the backyard until the rats are gone. In automation, we can select everything, blinds, lights, doors BUT not the rachio controller. I contacted the spine support and they noticed that this feature is not currently available. Does anyone have an idea to cancel this and make it work?
