After you've connected & activated your Rachio controller, you'll be given the choice to "Start Using My Controller" or "Set Up My Zones":
If you have time to do so, we recommend "Set Up My Zones" immediately. Each zone takes 1-2 minutes to configure and is an important step in helping the app calculate accurate watering durations and intervals. If the wrong data is entered for any zone, it will reflect in the watering durations and intervals.
If you choose to "Set Up My Zones", you will be guided through these steps.
Following zone setup, the app will crunch the data provided to create a custom watering schedule unique to your lawn's needs.
