I have had the Rachio 3 for about 6 months and no issues. It’s been raining a lot, so it’s been off. Today I put new sod in my yard and wanted to run it, but now I see it’s offline and I can’t get it connected. I’ve spent over 3 hours on this. Tech support has not replied yet.
I have power-cycled the router, unplugged the unit for 15+ mins several times, went through the resetting the wifi and each time it finds my network and shows the Rachio unit as an Accessory Name, then when it’s going through the “setting up this accessory to join xxx network” it says an unexpected error has ocured over and over.
I see the blue light, then in the second bar is the blinking yellow.
I’m beginning to think there is a problem with the unit. This is just so bad of timing when I need it the most. My neighbors are wondering why I’m watering my lawn with a hose.
