I’d like to use a Rachio zone to release a shelf of hay for my horse. I’m looking for a 24vac solenoid but all I can find are 24vdc. Any pointers? If this works I’ll build more shelves and will need a bunch of Rachio controllers.
I did test this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01K69S1HI/ 24vdc - But with a minimum 1 minute scheduled time on a zone, the solenoid buzzes and warms up which is not great with possible programming errors and hay dust especially with a solenoid not rated for 24vac.
