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.
