Hey all, I just joined the Rachio universe last week after finding a unit at HD for a killer deal. I’m enjoying it so far, trying to find the right mix of settings for a over-planted house in the drought-stricken southwest. It’s not easy but I know Rachio will help me!
Anyway, after reading some discussions on here and pws, I’m adding a netatmo to my setup this week. I’ve already done most of the steps in the online rachio support article about setting up the netatmo, but got to wondering, do I need a computer that is always online in order for the netatmo and meteoware to communicate and send data to my pws “station”? I’m hoping the answer is no, as I only have a laptop that goes to work with me everyday, but suspect it might be yes. If so, anyone know if I could use my diskstation server to work this, or maybe pick up a rasberry pi that would do this?
