I have a rachio 2 8 zone and have always had a problem with wifi connection. The rachio product is ok but the wifi module is complete and utter junk! It requires a wifi router sitting right next to the darn device for it to get a decent connection!
Will start looking elsewhere for a better wifi controller.
Note: was thinking for getting the lawn treatments/chemicals, but now i am shelving that idea.
@Rachio stop using the cheapest least effective wifi module. The controller sits in the garage away from most ppl’s routers; so a weak signal is a given. I have camera from samsung and amazon that sit right next to the rachio contoller and they have constant wifi connection.
WHAT a disappointment. Next stop Twitter, fb, … whatever i can get to - unless Rachio makes this Right!
