    Hardwire Rachio Finally, February 9, 2016

    Awesome product. Allows me to hardwire my Rachio 2nd Gen. I was going to go with the other guy WIFI controller, then Rachio came out with 2nd Gen. Now this is great. Highly recommended.

    What I don’t understand is the lack of pictures from Rachio. Why don’t they take more pictures and show them in details on the site? I was wondering how do these work. Why can’t they take a picture that shows the plug in there? Rachio! Have you seen Apple website about their products? A good idea to copy them, don’t you think? ‘.

    Anyways, love my Rachio 2nd Gen and this enclosure.

    So far so good. Easy setup as long as you have some basic understanding of your network. The app is nifty and responsive.

    My only complaint is that even though I have renamed the zones to things like “front lawn” or “flower bed” when using Alexa I have to say the zone number rather than the friendly name. I’m hoping they update this as the system matures.

    Overall I’m very happy and I think it will pay for itself with water savings because it knows when it rains close by. You can also hook up an external rain sensor, but I’ve opted for just using my closed weather station for climate information.

    Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What’s this?)

    A lot of home automation solutions have “green” subtext of saving money because of adding more controls to ensure that use is when needed. Lawn sprinklers is actually the first generation of home controls… before the Z-Wave and Wi-Fi… watering lawns on a timer that will adhere to a 7×24 plan. Rachio makes this level of control the entry level, adding many more levels of water management that it almost seems like you have your own groundskeeper monitoring the weather forecast, evaluating what type of soil, runoff, and plants/grass. If we could possibly ignore the web and phone interface, just the feature of skipping watering when there’s going to be a rainstorm, or a frost, is priceless. Well I guess not… You certainly can put a price on how much you save.

    This is my second Rachio Iro. I purchased the 1st generation Rachio 8-zone for my last house and it was a champ. The only thing that I didn’t like and was frankly, maddening… was the blink method of pairing the 1st gen to your Wi-Fi SSID. In fact, after many attempts of blink pairing, both my Rachio 1st gen and my Samsung S5 flew across the room. I eventually hid in a dark room, hid under a Harry Potter invisibility cloak, and paired it up. The resulting awesome watering made me completely forget about the blink pain… until dredging up the horrible memories for your benefit… thanks for that…

    In my new house, the existing Hunter HRC 9-zone controller was ok, but how could I live with a Hunter fixed schedule controller after having an internet “cloud” irrigation solution… The Rachio Iro 2nd Gen 16 zone arrived before the irrigation was needed in Ohio. 1st glance… It’s much bigger than a 1st gen, and the shape is similar to the spot that the Hunter left on the wall. No repainting needed… nice. This new controller has a cover instead of an install plate. I was happy to see that there was no blink sensor and that Rachio invested in wireless setup with RF.

    I used my cell to take a picture of my existing Hunter HRC’s wires ensuring that the colors and their termination was easily visible in the picture. Unscrewed all of the wire terminals and tossed the Hunter into the trash. I couldn’t bear the thought of someone buying it used and missing the water saving opportunity of a cloud irrigation controller. The Iro was secured into place quickly with 4 screws… I’m sure two would have been fine, but there were more holes, more screws, and my Ryobi drill was barely used. Since I wouldn’t need it again for this simple install… It was put away soon after.

    I took a look at all of the zone wire leads and trimmed a few of them down to expose less conductor. Using my cell, I pressed the main valve and two commons into the C and MC accordingly. Following the colors from my cell picture, I pressed in the 9 zones… Simple… 5 minutes. Plugging in the Iro to the wall and controller, I used the cell application to register the controller. Because I have a Main Valve in my system, I opened the settings and advanced and checked the main valve on the Rachio app. I then had to go find the cover of the Hunter, because I forgot to get the zone labels… another quick phone picture and the Hunter cover was back in the trash.

    This isn’t my first Rachio Iro rodeo, so defining each zone with the name, type of irrigation heads, what is being watered (flowers, shrubs, grass, etc.), slope, soil type… pretty simple. While turning on each zone manually to test that they trigger, I took a picture of the good aqua shot, and updated the zone with the picture. Now my OCD kicks in and I use a soil moisture hydrometerDr.Meter® Moisture Sensor Meter, Soil Water Monitor, Hydrometer for Gardening, Farming, Indoor/Outdoor Use (4-in-1 Advanced Version) to put in an initial setting for the zone as well as use a laser to measure the area of the zone Laser Distance Meter, Handheld Range Finder Measure with LCD Backlight Display, Area/Volume/Distance/Pythagoras Calculation, Self-Calibration Rangefinder, Tape Measure 0.05 to 40m(0.16 to 131ft). My need for accuracy resolved, I go inside and find a comfy chair and login to rachio.com to setup my watering programs.

    Since my front yard gets a ton of sun and my backyard is a forested preserve, I setup two programs. There will be times that I’ll want to water the front without the back, so keeping them on separate programs makes disabling the backyard program a simple switch. My municipal water only allows watering on 3 days of the week depending on your street address, astrological sign, and great grandmother’s maiden name (the one you liked). I use the “fixed days” feature or risk fines from the aqua police. Even though the flexible daily or flexible monthly…
