Is this the right controller for me?

  • Remote Control. The Rachio Smart Controller remote control features allow you to start, stop, pause, or skip individual zones – even create a Custom Run schedule – all from their exclusive Remote. Only Rachio offers smartphone control this precise.
  • Exclusive Weather Intelligence. With advance Rain, Freeze, and Wind Skips, Weather Intelligence automatically adjusts watering schedules for predicted weather.
  • Compatibility. The Rachio Smart Controllers are compatible with almost any irrigation system. We’ll simply swap out your old controller and continue using your existing pipes and sprinkler heads. Controllers are available in 8 zone and 16 zone models to accommodate most lawn/system sizes.
  • If your current control clock is located outdoors, you must purchase a Rachio Outdoor Enclosure for your new Rachio smart controller prior to your installation appointment. If you don’t have the enclosure present during your installation, we will be unable to install your new controller. These can be found on Amazon or other online venues. Just be sure that it’s a Rachio Outdoor Enclosure for Generations 2 and 3, which is designed to fit their exact product.

Are there installation challenges I should know about?

During your preliminary Slow the Flow outdoor consultation, we’ll make sure you’ve got all the necessary components in place to ensure a successful smart controller installation. In addition to our standard efficiency testing, we’ll be checking to make sure you receive a wifi signal at the location of your current control clock. If your controller is outside, you will need to purchase a protective outdoor enclosure, and have it ready for us to install for you during your follow-up installation appointment. We cannot install your controller outdoors without one! Finally, we’ll make sure the size of your system is compatible with a Rachio. If your current controller services more than 16 zones, we are unable to replace it with a Rachio, as their smart controller models have a 16 zone maximum.
