Is this a z wave device or just wifi? Z wave would be better for me since the wifi router is far away.

Asked by: Del
There's a lot of wrong/bad information here and I think people should not answer questions unless they KNOW the answer. It's misleading, at best, and may propagate far and wide. The Rachio panel does NOT support Z-wave. The Nexia compatibility is due to the fact that Nexia REQUIRES a WiFi bridge. It's the first thing that must be purchased and installed to use Nexia. So, you can use Nexia to control WiFi devices. It's not even accurate to claim that "Nexia is Z-wave only." Also, it is true the Rachio does not support 5GHz WiFi, but it is NOT true that it will not work with a dual-band router. This is absurdity. You don't even had to turn off the 5GHz radio... just ensure your SSID is same on your app and the Rachio. If your router is not properly bridging the 2.4 and 5GHz then that is the problem and it's not uncommon with older or buggy firmware. The AC68U is a perfect example of this and enabling "legacy mode" is a work-around until the firmware is updated. Please stop "helping" by providing information you "think" is correct.

Before purchasing I called the company to see if they I would be able to fully control device from "either" my phone or my PC using a web browser. I was assured that I could. However upon receipt of unit: a phone IS REQUIRED to perform the inital setup. a phone IS REQUIRED to change your password a phone IS REQUIRED to change MANY of the features on the product "it is really hit or miss" what is supported from PC web application. Company does not see at all concerned that MANY functions are PHONE only, company is unwilling to update the web interface to fully support using a PC web browser.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from terribile customer service Better hope it works out od the box, took me two days to get through to a live person at Rachio. My unit was dead out of the box and they refused to replace the unit and wanted to ship a new power adapter in hopes that would fix the problem. When i asked not to be a gunea pig i was told sorry this is their process and they would have to elevate it to a manager and wait for them to make a decision and call me back?? Needless to say i returned the unit and purchased another brand. Terribile service.

The unit itself was sold to me as new but had been previously sold to another customer in another part of Florida and returned. Rachio had to register it to me. Probably should not have purchased from Home Depot.

The first controller's label had incorrect serial number and MAC address do it could not communicate with the Rachio server. Their technical staff were very responsive, working over the weekend to attempt to resolve the issue. In the end the sent me a new controller that I installed and had operating properly in 15 minutes. I would prefer a system that did not rely solely on the Internet, but so far it has not been a problem.

Daylight a dark difference in the setup and ease of use. I spent 3 calls to rainbird tech support and gave up. I was going to return it and get a replacement one but saw the Rachio instead. Wow, what a difference. This unit let's the zones consider the types of grass, shade, sunny, and more. Rush down and buy this one. It was a tiny bit more expensive but well worth it.
