I’ve been a user of Rachio for over 2 years now and even upgraded from Gen1 to Gen2. I’ve been impressed with the support forum and user interface. However the ability to control more than 12 zones (I have 24) and the integration of proper flow meter with alerts has evaded me for years. I have connected 2 12 zone units together but this solution doesn’t offer true integration. I’m getting weary as I wait and recently read that hydrawise offers all the solutions that I need.
Here is what I need:
True integration of multiple controllers. The current solution is not much of a solution at all, and managing watering restrictions on certain days without overlap of both controllers is too complex.
Proper water flow meter integration that shows real time usage per zone and alerts for over use etc. Hydrawise tells you actual gallons in a myriad of ways- per zone, per day, per week, per month, etc. Hydrawise flow meter installed, it also can send alerts to your phone when water is flowing when it is not supposed to be, or if a zone is using more water than usual - all based on ACTUAL gallons per minute flows.
Please tell me this is all part of the planned sottware upgrade. Otherwise I may have to leave for the dark side.
