[18-Oct-2021] Over the last week or so I’ve been researching water controllers and decided on the Rachio 3 16 zone unit. As part of my research, I joined this forum and now it’s come to a screeching halt.
My problem is that I’m in Australia and I’ve read several threads related to the radio frequency issue and there was another thread where apparently our BoM site is not used for weather stats. Not sure if here in Melbourne there are other weather stations that would be used, but I didn’t delve into that side of it any further because of the RF issue. Yes, there is a thread related to DIY cut/snip/solder the RF but now it is all too hard, and I’ll have to pass.
I note that the RF issue has been around for at least two years, that no firmware updates are forthcoming (option to turn off RF).
If my above claims or assertions are false, or something is on the horizon that would satisfy international customers, I’d be happy to be corrected.
