It seems to me that WU appears to be the most integrated site for PWS manufacturers.
I understand Rachio servers can’t pull data directly from WU due to the free API call limits. But I’m thinking I have 2 viable options.
If the data from the local PWS to WU is not encrypted:
- The data sent from my local network to WU is a known set of values. How about we select local PWS in the settings, select the site our data is being uploaded to, and the Rachio listens to the local network for that known data? No API calls at all.
If the data from the local PWS to WU is encrypted:
- How about the end user enters their WU login info into their Rachio unit and the local unit calls for their personal data from WU. No mass API calls from a single Rachio server IP, no API limits reached “per user”.
Please keep in mind, any reference to WU should be construed as WU or other known site that could be set.
I look forward to any feedback to these ideas.
