I’m looking for a landscape lighting controller as good as my rachio.
My son had the great idea of using the rachio to control our outside lighting.
The only problem(s):
- the fact the lighting is 12v and the rachio 24v.
Proposed solution - use a 12 v adapter (120-12 vs. 120-24). We assume what goes in comes out?
- the fact i might need a bit more than what the ac power is supplying (number of watts - we are just using it for a bunch of low wattage LEDs but not sure of budget yet).
Proposed solution - use a larger adapter - something like a 12v 80watt laptop charger. We assume the rachio is just a micro controller with a bunch of relays and what goes in from the power supply goes out thru the relays based on what the lights pull).
So with all the caveats - I’m violating warranty, no guarantees, etc.
Is this a viable solution?
