The following guide should help you identify the LED light codes indicated by your the Wi-Fi light on your Gen 1 Rachio Smart Sprinkler Controller.
The color of your Wi-Fi light is likely to change frequently during BlinkUp. After performing BlinkUp, allow at least a minute for the code to resolve, then check color (below)
- NO Light - Seeing BlinkUp
Your Gen 1 is receiving BlinkUp instructions.
- AMBER Light - No Wi-Fi settings are associated with the Rachio
Your Gen 1 is ready for its first* BlinkUp!
- GREEN Light - No Issues, good to go!
Your Gen 1 has successfully connected!
- RED Light - Local Network Issue
Your Gen 1 is having trouble finding the right Network / Password combination.
- RED & AMBER Combo Light - Security Settings Issue
Your Gen 1 is determining its connection path.
The Wi-Fi light turns off one hour after BlinkUp, and remains off except for special circumstances (see above). This is normal operation, and no cause for concern.
*The AMBER (No Wi-Fi Settings) light code will not return if the unit has received BlinkUp instructions.
This is a one-time code for the Gen 1 Rachio, generally seen only upon first setup.
