Another week, another update. Let’s talk about what’s new!
Rachio’s app is now universal, which means iPad support is here! This also includes landscape mode support on iPads. No need to download a new app, just make sure you are up to date. Say thanks to @zachio our iOS developer who made this happen, and @timber, for the sick fan art.
New Zone Settings
We have now added a new Garden vegetation type and Drip Line nozzle type! These should help all of our veggie gardeners out there. Before you guys beat me to it- here are the default values for those…
Crop coefficient: 0.85
Root zone depth: 12”
Precipitation rate: 0.5 in/hr
Note: These zone types work best in fixed schedules.
Rain Sensor Status
We noticed often users would see their schedules would stop running, and they weren’t sure why. After countless @franz investigations, we realized a good amount of the time this was due to a rain sensor being active. To make it easier to know when your rain sensor is activated, we added this status to the Home screen!
- Usage reporting was improved for users with flow sensor issues.
See ya next time!
