You’ll have to run wire from the irrigation valves to the controller.

Can you provide me an example of irrigation valves or system compatible ?

Hey @jpizarro009!
You need an in ground sprinkler system with 24v solenoids in order to use Rachio. You also need a 2.4 gHz or dual band wifi router, and either an Android or iPhone!

I stand corrected- doesn’t necessarily need to be in ground. That’s what we see most often but as long as there are valves you should be good to go!
