The topic title says it all - what’s the difference between the Rachio 3 and the Rachio 3 Pro models? I was able to find that the non-Pro model has a 2 year warranty while the Pro has a 4 year warranty. And apparently the Pro model is available only through “Pro” sellers.
So: My landscaping company has proposed selling me an 8-station Pro model, at a breathtaking price (breathtaking isn’t a good thing) and an equally breathtaking installation charge. The controller they’re replacing is a competitor’s product that I installed myself several years ago - and from reading the Rachio instructions it’s pretty trivial to replace my old one.
I can buy the non-pro model myself and install it myself. Or I can spend more than three times as much to have the landscaping company set me up with the pro model. Other than a longer warranty, and the fact that the landscaping company will theoretically support it if there are problems, are there any other compelling reasons to go with the Pro model?
…my apologies if this is covered elsewhere…I did search for it but came up empty…
