I have been a Rachio user for several years and currently have a gen 1 in my home. I have several rental properties where my tenants are not as fastidious about watering as I would be and as a result, my grass is dying, and I am getting fined by the HOA.
I am thinking about investing in Gen2 devices and using Freedompop LTE hotspots, one for each house. I’m currently testing a hotspot with my own gen 1 and things seem to work as they should.
I’d like to put all of this in a box: The Rachio, the hotspot, and a power outlet to support both devices. Does anyone have any suggestions on a good lockable box I could use and mount indoors in a garage area? Has anyone tried a solution like this and had it work successfully?
My irrigation company (I must fix several nozzles) wants to quote me a Weathermatic smartlink system for each home but I really like my Rachio. If Rachio is coming up with an all in one LTE solution I’m your tester, but in the meantime, I’m looking for boxes and advice.
