Last year, Rachio won over irrigation pros and their clients with fast and easy installation and water saving advantages.

Now Rachio has release its Generation 2 controller, with more features and benefits:

Expanded Capabilities: Rachio Gen 2 supports up to 16 zones and two sensors.

On Board Controls: Now it’s possible to install Rachio on new builds or when Wi-Fi isn’t available. Run zones or set up a temporary schedule right from the controller.

Easier Wiring + Testing: A roomier wiring bay makes installation easier, and the new single plate design allows for voltage testing.

Easier Setup: No longer requires “blinkup.” Clients can easily connect a Rachio controller to Wi-Fi using the Rachio App on their iPhone, Android or iPad.

New Outdoor Enclosure: Mount the Rachio controller outdoors using the new outdoor enclosure for weatherproof protection, sold separately.

More Rachio Advantages

Landscaper Access: Manage all your clients’ Rachio controllers from your own account. Once Rachio has been set up on a client’s device, they can share access with you using your email address, so you’ll never have to ask for your clients’ passwords.

Extended Warranty: Extended warranty with pro install. Rachio is now offering an additional two years of warranty (for a total of four years) on any product installed by a professional. This offer is only on product purchased from pro distributors, like Ewing. This is a $50 value for the pro to leverage with their customers. Talk to your Ewing Service Professional for more details.

    Nice Article! I just installed a Rachio 2 and it was a breeze. Anyway, I also found out that the county that I live in will reimburse me the total cost of my new Rachio.

    Which should easily sway new users to Rachio over manual controllers. It was a no brainer for me. Save water and money for the controller.

    Rachio will even help find you a rebate or you can check your local water utility for rebate forms.
