We run two Rachio controllers on a Fixed schedule with all Intelligence features turned on. We had a power outage lasting about 8 hours, during which it was pouring rain. The outage began before the time at which Rachio normally makes the decision whether to run the schedule, and spanned the time during which the schedule usually runs (if it is going to run).
Upon restoration of power (well after the normal start time), both controllers immediately began watering. What is odd about this is that they appear to have done so without checking weather conditions. Usually, the Schedule Updates log contains an entry indicating that schedules were skipped or not skipped according to observed/forecast weather conditions. No Schedule Updates log entry was recorded in this instance.
The power outage also took out our Internet service, but it came back online shortly after power was restored. Perhaps when power came on, the controllers discovered that they could not immediately communicate with the Rachio mother ship or with weather stations. But it still seems odd that the controllers decided immediately (within one minute of power-on) to run the schedules, without logging any entry in Schedule Updates about why it made this decision.
We have two controllers that behaved the same way, so this isn’t just some random transient glitch.
