I’m shopping around for a new controller and the Rachio looks pretty close from a features perspective. I have a couple of specific questions related to scheduling. With my current controller, I can pretty well manage soil structure adjustments, spray head output, etc. I have a couple of pain points that I’m wondering if the Rachio handles.
The biggest pain point I have is that everytime my city has water restrictions, I have to re-tool the cycle\soak timings and overall maximum runtime per zone. It would be nice if when our restrictions go from twice a week, to once a week, and then to every other week…that the system readjusts.
In terms of seasonal adjustments. I assume I can scale my watering times by a percentage? Is that done automatically? And is the Rachio smart enough to shift watering times to reduce lawn disease likelihood. Like in spring\summer, I want to water in the early AM so the plant tissue dries off as it heats up. And in fall, I’m wanting to water later in the afternoon.
Thanks for the help.
