How would services control Rachio?

@Sjordan14 - The best way is if the sprinkler service and lawn care company have smart phones or tables, then they can be provided access to the Rachio controller. How much access is dependent on which access they are provided -> https://support.rachio.com/hc/en-us/articles/115010541868-How-do-I-share-my-controller-with-someone-
