New Wi-Fi Network or Equipment?
If your Wi-Fi network credentials have changed (Name/SSID and/or password), or you setup a new router from the one you had when you first setup your Rachio, we recommend you perform a Wi-Fi Reset. A Wi-Fi Reset will clear the controller's network settings, but not the zone or schedule settings.
Wi-Fi Reset Steps
To perform a Wi-Fi Reset, follow the steps below:
- Power cycle the controller
Unplug your Rachio Smart Sprinkler Controller, Generation 2, then plug it back in. Light One should still be blinking when performing step 2.
- Hold DOWN and SELECT
Press and hold the DOWN ARROW + SELECT BUTTON (see image below for reference) simultaneously until the LED light ring is fully illuminated, then release.
- Update Wi-Fi in Rachio App
After the LED light ring is fully illuminated, go back into the Rachio app and select the "More" tab from the navigation bar, then select "Controller Settings." Choose "Update Wi-Fi Network" and complete the steps outlined.
