hey Dev team…
I’ve been using Rachio for a year now and it’s truly a disappointing user interaction. The Hardware is adequate, but the UI… UGH!
- Web interface. Would be great to configure the system using a web browser.
- The ability to adjust zones in a table would be great, why do I have to go into each program (schedule) individually? Why not just display all the zones in a table with the: start time, duration, repeat interval, smart function on/off, % adjustment (if not smart)., etc.
- the ability to adjust in minutes and seconds. Seems trivial for most people, but here in San Diego, I run some zones just for a minute or two. So the rachio adjustments actually don’t adjust, for example I have a 2 minute zone. When it changes, there is not enough granularity to adjust, so it sends me an email saying we adjusted from 2 mintues to 2 minutes. #1 don’t send such a stupid email, #2 please make adjustments in % and then make that change, eg. we cut your watering cycle 50% so it was 3 minutes now it’s 1 minute 3 seconds. Come on folks, Alexa can tell me jokes and you guys can’t manage to do minutes and seconds? WHY???
Ok, if you actually pay attention to this user feedback I’ll be amazed, and if you do I’ll give more feedback!
