Tips & Troubleshooting
Use the Alarm.com app
You must use the Alarm.com mobile app to view Irrigation details. Irrigation is not yet available on the Alarm.com Customer Website.
Tips for Use
- You cannot interact with a zone or schedule while watering. Select "Stop Watering" before making changes.
- To water zones that are not in a schedule, select “Water All Zones” and deselect zones as desired.
- Schedule names are visible in the Alarm.com app, but the zones and durations are only available in the Rachio app. Use the Rachio app to give each schedule a descriptive name for easy reference from the Alarm.com app.
- To change zone names, use the Devices page on the Customer Website.
Delete a Device from Alarm.com
To remove a Rachio controller from an Alarm.com account, your Dealer must do the following: Login to Dealer's website > Find the customer’s account and navigate to Equipment > emPower Devices > Rachio > Log out of Rachio Account
