Battery Backup Possibility?

Can I connect a battery to the rachio so it will work if the power goes out?

@rcalonica - a UPS would need to be used that provides AC power as the Rachio and solenoids use AC power. Assuming that there is not a pump to be powered and the schedule was already downloaded to the Rachio, a UPS should keep it working during a power outage. Without WiFi there won’t be any remote control available, nor schedule changes due to weather.
