I’m hoping to revive this ask for the ability to run multiple zones simultaneously.
First of all let me say that I love the Rachio product! This product is way better any previous automated sprinkler system controller I have used (including my last system by a company starting with Irri).
Now the bad news… at my last dinner party with 10 of my closest friends from college, I was impressing them with my ability to turn my landscape lights on with my phone. Then, they wanted to see my waterfall run. The only way I could turn on the waterfall is to turn off the lights, because I was not able to run both zones simultaneously. It was nighttime. My friends DID say they enjoyed the sound of my waterfall even though they could see the water.
Lights and waterfall pump are controlled through relays.
BTW… the other (Irri…) company’s product handles this fine (they have a lighting zone… hey!?)
Thanks for reading.
