Hi Gene! On the ceiling of my garage, there is a standard outlet. One plug is used for a garage door motor, and the other is where the Hunter AC plug is connected to.
It looks like the original Hunter sprinkler installer tried to extend the original Hunter plug by adding a longer cord. So it would looke like this:
[[standard outlet]] =[Plug]–/splice/-------cord-----------/splice/–[Hunter]
With the current setup in the garage (using the existing non-grounded cord that was already spliced and extended by the original installer), that is what I spliced to the outdoor box, so it looks like this:
[standard outlet]] =[Plug]–/splice/-------cord-----------/splice/–[Rachio Outdoor/control unit]
I went out to the Rachio just now, and the lights were off. I unplugged, waited about 3 mins, plugged it back in, and I now see a solid blue 1st light, and it will not connect. The lights on the Rachio have either been one of two options: 1) 1st is solid only, nothing else, or 2) both 1st and 2nd are blinking.
Is there a way to upload or submit pictures or video?
