After the blowout is completed, there are a couple steps you will need to take in getting your Rachio bundled up and ready for winter. We recommend the following standby procedures to prepare for the colder months and get your controller ready for hibernation. To winterize your Rachio, simply place it in standby mode within the app. From your Rachio App Home screen, select “Device Settings” then “Standby Mode”. Also disable your schedules by going into Edit Schedule and switching ENABLED to off. Now your Rachio is ready for the cold months ahead!
