Meanwhile, I sit back running on full automatic (Flex Daily) with my home brew ‘don’t water if it’s less than 45 degrees F’ implementation, clueless on what all this fuss is.
(Not really clueless.)
The answer is I live in a dense metropolitan area (suburb of Dallas) where many have their own weather instruments in their backyard, that are literally within a block or two of me, that run stuff fully compatible with Rachio today. This thread, and some others, have given to me appreciation that Rachio still has work to do for those that don’t live close to ‘acceptable to Rachio’ weather instruments, leaving considerable chance that the weather at any given moment at the Rachio user’s site is different than where the closest weather instruments site it.
Looks like some of you are not very close to ‘set and forget’ operation, having to implement other non-Rachio supplied capabilities in order to get Rachio supplied benefits.
This has been an interesting subject.
