  • Unit works great after....
    Verified BuyerReviewed by BankOmAn - July 3, 2020

    First of let me say this is my 3rd Rachio. I recently moved and didn’t take my Gen 2 unit with me due to it being an 8 zone and I needed a 10 zone unit. Functionality is great with these products but this Gen 3 unit setup is horrible if you’re on a newer iPhone. After 45mins of trying to get this connect to WiFi from my iPhone 11 Pro and via Windows program they have I was unable to get the unit to work. I had to borrow someone’s older iPhone to get the unit to connect to my WiFi and then everything was good. IMO that is unacceptable! Once I got the unit setup to the WiFi I haven’t had any other issues and the unit has been functioning great.

  • Great smart sprinkler system
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Greg - March 12, 2021

    Bought on Earth Day at cheaper price than the older 8 zone model. Only have 8 zones on my system, but this had more features and allows for future expansion if needed. Installed myself (not an irrigation guy, but somewhat of a techy). Was a little confusing mapping the wires from my old system. Took some trial and error and referencing some online guides from Rachio. Looks a heck of alot better on my wall than the old one. Has been up and running now for almost a year. Very reliable. Easy to get basic schedules setup. Lots of advanced options available. Definitely helps keep our plants green in Dallas, TX once it is set right.

  • It's a whole new greener and cheaper world
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Lobo - June 9, 2020

    My water bill went from $800 to $200, no exaggeration, even BEFORE getting the Rachio Flowmeter. The controller when I bought the house made it so difficult to figure out what zone was what, to trouble shoot, to set up a schedule, and FORGET troubleshooting! I had a Hunter controller, so installing and setting this up myself was super easy. Now, I can watch my yard respond for a couple weeks, tweak here and there, and like I said, get to a point where I'm saving $600/mo with a beautiful yard! When this season started, the Flowmeter helped alert me to two sprinkler heads that broke, and I'd never have known. Love this thing!
