I have had my app for 3 days now, I checked my battery usage over the past 24 hours, Rachio has used 44% of my iPhones battery. After dialing in my sprinkler heads(maybe 20 minutes of usage), I backgrounded the app and it destroyed my battery life. I am running the latest iOS version 10.3.2 and latest Rachio version. Any known solutions to fix this?
This is incredibly abnormal for our app. Can you try deleting it and reinstalling?
I’d like to give it a few more days to see if it just happened to be a fluke. If it persists, then i’ll delete and reinstall. I keep you updated.
@scottprovost, FYI, iP7, same iOS, up to date app and I looked at the battery percentage used for both the last 24 hours and the last 7 days and the Rachio application doesn’t even show up - lowest usage percentage that shows is 1%. The application has been in the background for the entire period and I have gotten alerts that it is starting and finishing watering. So I would agree with @mckynzee that this is abnormal. That said, I’m not actively testing and tuning my irrigation system as it has been up for a year plus.
I’ll 2nd for most up to date ios and app. Doesn’t even show up in battery usage stats but I get alerts every day for runs and I’ve opened it up briefly in the past week
Update: Yesterday I only had the app open for a few minutes, my usage went down to 10%, now today it isn’t even showing up in the list. So it must have been because I was actively using the app.
Its easy to become obsessed with Rachio.
