Hi @benblackmer. Honestly my initial thought on knowing the firmware version was my own geeky curiosity, but @sbillard makes a good point regarding troubleshooting that is probably in line with my subconcious reasoning for this. Most (if not all) other smart devices I own (Nest, Vizio TV, Sony DVD, etc) all publish the current firmware version. For those that push out required (i.e. involuntary) firmware updates (like Nest) they communicate that information beforehand and provide the basic release notes.
I think it's also important for companies (Rachio included) to remember that we (consumers) have purchased and own these devices. Updating the firmware without a courtesy "virtual knock on the door" may rub some the wrong way.
Thanks for entertaining this idea! For what it's worth what I really want is the current rain sensor status on the main page.
