I use rachio with my home automation hub and the plugin developer has said that a recent change in rachio API has removed the ability to retrieve the amount of time watered by zone as well as the number of days ago that it watered it. Since then, the only information that he has been able to retrieve from rachio are how the zone is setup (Zone Type, Spray Head, Soil Type, Exposure etc). Once these are setup, I really have no use for that information on our touch screens around the house. Also, all users have lost the ability to turn off a zone via the hub.
Is there any way someone at rachio could consider working with home automation hubs better? I have multiple Echo dots around the house but I want the system “Automated” and don’t want to have to tell Alexa to turn on and off my system. Alexa is “Cool”, new and flashy, but let’s work towards “automation” not just a fancy remote control.
