Complete Newbie question on Rachio


Hi to all, having a Rachio Gen 2 installed tomorrow morning Cool beans of course but I have a newb question. With the Wifi, Will I be controlling the Rachio by way of the web or direct wifi to the unit? Do I need wifi signal out in the yard or can I use my smartphone with internet access to control it? Want to be able to turn zones on and off for maintenance with my phone or iPad. Hey and I got zip for WiFi signal out in the yard. Can’t imagine that it isn’t controlled via the web but just asking. I told you I was a newb! Any comments appreciated. Well…most of them I am sure :slight_smile:


You can control the Iro from “anywhere” with the phone app. Of course the phone needs a network connection but that can be your data connection to your phone service provider.


Thanks, found the answer in here so again sorry for the bother. Search is your friend right?
