I’m looking into buying a Rachio and I’m trying to figure out what limitations it has. It looks like if you want to manually run a zone from the buttons on the panel, it’s limited to 3 minutes per zone. Is this correct?
I have someone come out to blow out the sprinkler lines for Winter, and he’s not the type of guy who has a smartphone (land line only). So I can’t give him access to the system via an app. I’m not usually home when we comes by (he has a list of people who he does, and just gets to them as needed), so I can’t manually run the system for him either.
Is there any other option that I haven’t thought of? This might be a deal breaker for me. I did a search in the community and I’ve found several other posts going back a a few years ago about this problem, but it doesn’t look like it was ever addressed.
