The Gen2 controller is now a brick with wires. It was installed via Windows Edge and ran fine and could adjust zones – even with a Windows 10 phone even after the latest software update.
Had to reset home Wi-Fi TP 1750 dual band and that was the kiss of death. Tried resetting the Rachio Brick Wi-Fi as per instructions. Got the second blinking light. The Rachio showed on the network… and no go.
Tried to reset the controller to factory. No go. Tried to access with a HD Fire. Dud.
No Windows app? Huh? This is a long term issue that has not be resolved.
And borrow an Android or Apple toy to get the controller up and running? What is this? The dark ages.
What then, have to use a neighbor’s phone to run my toy, change settings etc.?
Tried an Android emulator or two – why, it’s about the last option. No go. Great for playing games, that’s it.
One more day of manual watering then the good old clock/timer is going back to work (key word – WORK) and the brick is going on eBay. Let someone else waste time with it. The old rain kill-switch worked just fine! No need for a weather station.
