Control multiple Rachio Controllers


#1

I just purchased a single Rachio 16 zone controller for my backyard. I added an Amazon Echo yesterday and I’m impressed how Alexa can control my Rachio, my Smartthings, and my Harmony Home Control.

I now want to purchase a second 16 zone Rachio for my front yard. How can I control both Rachios with Alexa?

I think you will need to set up a household account on Amazon and add a second account to your household. You can associate different skills and Rachios with each account in the household.In the Echo app you would add the Rachio skill to the other household account and link to your new Rachio To switch between accounts on the Echo you would say “switch accounts”. Now that you are in the second household account your commands to Echo for Rachio would go to the second Rachio unit.
