Cheap controller for Rachio (old iPod touch?)

I’m looking for an inexpensive controller for my newly installed Rachio. This is just something to keep in the garage for when the service people come by. I was thinking about getting a cheap used iPod touch. Any suggestions on what kind of unit I can use for this purpose?

@dlleon I think any iPod touch will work running at least iOS 7, preferably 8.

We do a lot of our testing with a iPhone 5 that isn’t connected to a carrier, just WiFi.


Hi @dlleon, good evening.

Do your service people(s) have a smart phone? If so, you should check out the sharing access feature.

Hope this helps.

Best, Emil
