Answers

I believe they run sequentially if you choose "Smart Cycle." Much of the appeal is that it references your location and waters based on that as well as season, slope of the zone, and what you're watering, among other factors. You can probably run manually but then you lose many of these features. My lawns have not been in decline since installing.

Does not stay connected. Broken flashing lights after 3 months
I cannot operate either automatically or manually at this point. Controller is dead... Rachio team has not gotten back to me yet but I hope to get a replacement asap because heck, my grass needs water. Less is more, with sprinkler systems. Stick with tried true and reliable systems.

Some of the smart options take some getting used to. It created its on schedule on certain settings which initially are not intuitive. Installing was easy and straightforward. Compared to the old school dials on controllers this was great!

Well worth the money. Practically free If you apply for your $200 rebate through smartwater. Recommend the weather box and also installing a weather box to protect the transformer plug.

Works very well so far! I would recommend checking with your city before purchasing, though, as you may be eligible for a rebate to offset the purchase. Very much enjoy being able to control sprinklers from my phone now and the smart feature enhancements make it all the better. Installation was not too bad. I planned for a few hours because I was upgrading from an old Lawn Genie controller and I would have had to put it back if this didn't work. Labeling the cables, removing old controller, and installing Rachio was 60-90 minutes max. It's an awesome product and I would recommend the Rachio.

Super easy set-up and interface. I’ve owned the rain bird attempted equivalent to Rachio and it is not even close to the intelligence of this system. Highly recommended!
