I manage about 10 Rachio sites and I have another that is ready for irrigation (and other things I control with Rachio), but it is under construction and won’t have its own internet and wifi for a long while.
I’m hoping that I can set up a new Rachio by using my iPhone 6 to establish a hot spot and then installing the new controller normally. Afterwards, anyone can access it using cellular, as I do my clients controllers’ when I am at their properties.
After the clients move in just reinstall the Rachio as if it were new, and go on from there.
Are there any problems with this idea? Does it have to be online using its own internet to be able to be accessed using cellular? Sounds like it might.
Any workarounds ? Thanks
