Most everybody installing the Rachio Iro is going to have a WiFi network available, but what about the following scenario?:
- The project requires and Outdoor-Mount Controller installation;
- (No offense) The plastic enclosure you currently offer:
- Doesn’t lock
- Is plastic
- The project requires a Stainless Steel or Metal Cabinet enclosure.
We frequently use VIT Products for this.
I’m guessing the Faraday Cage effect would apply here. In these instances, the ability to install a Wi-Fi receiver through a knockout on the side of the enclosure, or simply plug an Ethernet cable into the Iro board itself would be ideal.
I haven’t taken one apart yet, but does anyone know what type of WiFi module/antenna the Iro uses? Does the board have room for an RJ45 jack as-is?
