I’ve been using Alexa for over a year now to control Rachio.
It worked great last year with: “Alexa, water zone 10 for 3 minutes”. (Watering by name has never and still does not work for me.)
This year, sometimes the above command works. More often, it is one of these two responses: “ok, here is Rachio, zone ten is watering for thee minutes.” or: “would you like to open Rachio?” -yes- “here’s Rachio, what would you like to do? (Might be: would you like to eater zone 10 for three minutes)”
At any rate, it would be nice if the simple request just worked. It would be nicer if it worked the same everytime. It would be cool if zone names worked.
