Another stupid question…If I read my own topic does it increase the views count?

Iro ~ sounds like irrigation :wink:

:cheers: :colorado:

So all of us here are referring to a physical device as a method? Or is it the other way around…

“Irrigation is the method in which water is supplied to plants at regular intervals for agriculture .”

I’d like to unofficially change the acronym to ric = rachio intelligent controller (gen1) and ric2 (gen2).



I like the unofficial acronym. We have a Ric here in the office he might get a kick out of this.

Thank you for your support!

I have the same 2 questions? Seriously folks, what does IRO mean in reference to Rachio’s controller, and also where did you come up with the name Rachio? I have a potential client that will not go forward until he gets this info. Why? He won’t tell me.


ha, i’ve wondered the same… also, i’ve wanted to know what do I actually call my device… is it my Iro or my Rachio?

Feel free to let your client know that IRO was a truncated way of saying irrigation. And, Rachio is latin for spine or backbone.

I hope that helps.


It’s your device so you can call it whatever you would like.:wink:
