Thanks! I was/am trying to transition from a Rain Bird ESP-LXM with the etManager module (the receiver keeps burning out). I use to do commercial Landscape design and am familiar with smart (et) controllers so I was initially excited, but now a little bummed because I now perceive that the rachio is feature poor comparatively speaking. The Rain Bird allowed for very granular control of all aspects, but could also be setup to be completely automatic. The good news is that rachio can be updated.
All that said, I don't expect an exact date, but would like to see some goal or tentative idea for the update to be completed by (insert date).
