Q:Is the standard AC adapter suitable for outdoor use with this enclosure?
by|Jun 17, 2023
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  The adapter that comes with the Rachio unit? Yes, BUT only if you use the power outlet box that is inside this enclosure. And unfortunately that power outlet box would need some sort of electrical wiring, outdoor or indoor depending on your application, to power it. That's the reason this enclosure is about 4-5" deep, to accommodate the Rachio AC adapter. The Rachio unit itself it only about an inch deep.

    Q:Is there any reason, (other than the obvious cost of this enclosure), that this couldn't also be used to mount the controller inside of a garage, just for added protection of the unit? Does the enclosure impede the signal strength to the unit in any way?

    Answer This Question

    A:  No I mounted it outside where the wire convections were available. The box is weather proof and we have had zero problems

    by|Mar 17, 2023

      A:  You can definitely mount it in the garage. The enclosure is all plastic and does not impede the signal strength in any way. It is a very nice quality, well fitting enclosure and works great. Mine has been outside for years and does an impeccable job at protecting the controller.

      by|Mar 17, 2023

        A:  My controller is installed outside, but I can’t think of any reason why it couldn’t be mounted indoors as well.

          Q:Do you need to buy an additional strain bushing, or can you use one from an existing non-Rachio controller?

          Answer This Question

          A:  Not sure what what this "strain bushing" is, that you you are asking about.

          A:  You should be able to use an existing strain bushing. The left side is 1/2" and the right side is 3/4"

          by|Feb 2, 2023

          A:  You can use a bushing that you have if it fits the opening on the Rachio enclosure. The purpose of the bushing is to support the wires from being tugged too hard, I believe. I bought the bushing that was recommended by Rachio on their website. It comes in a 5 pack and I only needed one, so it was a bit of a waste.

          This enclosure works great for rachio sprinkler controller. It's easy to replace my current system with Rachio. I had to get a pad lock for extra security since it's located outside. I have had for a few weeks now and it's great.

          First, I was a little dismayed that I had to buy a separate item to install my controller having already put out a pretty penny for the Rachio 3. Nevertheless, I got it, and various and sundry other things I needed to complete the whole enchilada. I only have two quibbles about it. First, it didn't come with any instructions. A full complement of hardware, but nothing saying how it should be used. I still don't know where the rubber washers were supposed to go, and didn't use them. Second, there is a lot of empty space. I would have appreciated something much more streamlined. It's deep because of the size of the transformer for the controller. I get it. Still, it sticks out further than necessary, in my opinion. I contacted Rachio before the unit arrived to get additional dimensions to plan for the install, and they were super responsive with a whole diagram. Applause for that!

            Easy installation. It's a little big but I guess it must be that big to hold the Transformer behind the controller unit. I've only had a few weeks and have had no rain. Appears to be watertight. We will see once we get a rain.

            Not too much to say except it's pretty much exactly what you'd expect it to be. I wish it was a little less bulky (it sticks out like 4-5" from the wall) but that huge power supply has to fit somewhere I guess. (I'm also a little sad I don't get to see the blue lights when the door is closed but that's just a dumb thing that doesn't really matter).

            Should have come with a 115 corded plug and the exterior enclosure is overpriced at $30. I hope it last longer than my old Orbit that died after only 2 years. However, when I called Rachio customer service she was great very helpful unlike Orbit which is terrible!
