New Wi-Fi network or equipment? Reset the Wi-Fi on your Rachio 3!
If your Wi-Fi network credentials have changed (Name/SSID and/or password), or you set up a new router from the one you had when you first set up 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:
- Update Wi-Fi in Rachio app
From within the Rachio app, navigate to the “More” tab, then select “Controller Settings.” Select “Update Wi-Fi Network” and then follow along with the app’s instructions.
In-app instructions will vary slightly for Android users.
- Hold down Wi-Fi Button
Press and hold the Wi-Fi button on the controller until the light bar is fully illuminated. A blue flash will indicate the device has accepted the command.
The device will provide the shut down light codes and then restart. (When the controller is shutting down, the light bar will start out fully illuminated with a white light. The light will then shrink down to the middle of the bar. It will continue to provide this code until the controller reboots).
- Connect in the app
When quadrant one is solid and quadrant 2 is blinking, complete the Wi-Fi update process from within the Rachio app. The Rachio app will let you know once the Wi-Fi update is successful.
