I just got my Rachio Gen 2 and I would like to be able to mount it to my masonry foundation. I went out and bought the smallest diameter Tapcon masonry screws (3/16"). These screws are still too big to fit through the mounting holes in the unit. What am I supposed to do?
Perhaps you could use some pressure treated lumber or aluminum to create a mounting plate that you could attach to the masonry foundation and then attach the Gen 2 controller to the plate. Make sure you caulk around the plate so water doesn’t get behind it.
Its probably pretty close to the needed diameter, right. Drill out the holes?
Drill out the hole in the box.
I’m afraid that I might crack the plastic, no?
Use a good drill bit don’t press too hard, plastic is pretty maluable
Thank you. I will do that.
it will work, then you will feel like a boss for having to do onsite refab, baller.
