Program off state change 

Ok, doesn't seem foolproof with a lot of state changes among the different zones so close together, but I'll give it a shot.  Thanks.

why do you say that?  I don't understand why this is any less fool proof then on/off actions?

Because Flologic requires different programming whether the relay is on or off.  With just getting a state change, no way to know for sure which way it is.  And I have 8 zones changing state very close to each other so overlap could be an issue.  Maybe simple for you seasoned programmers but I'm still a novice compared to some of you guys...

I actually found something in the Rachio driver that may work for me, you can program on if all zones are off.  So I'm going to give that a shot first.

not to revive an old thread, but...I'm reviving an old thread.

Does anyone know the approx. street price for the BW Rachio driver?  I was using the old Chowmain for my needs but it no longer works.  Hasn't been a big issue but would like to get Rachio control setup again on my T3 screens.

I just tested the BW driver, and it seems pretty slick - msgreenf, could you PM me the price for the driver?  I'm looking to buy if it fits my meager budget 🙂

Well, it's spring, sprinklers are running again, and again my Rachio integration with Control4 is not working.  Anybody else with issues, maybe from a Rachio API change?

I'm using the Blackwire driver, which hasn't had any recent updates.

If you are having issues with a driver then submit a support ticket with information on your project, debug logs etc

I just tested the rachio at my house and it is working fine through Control4 so we will need more information on your project and the error you are seeing.

It looks like there is an update available for this driver that just became available on Friday?  Has anybody tried it yet?  Hopefully all the issues are resolved.

We did a soft update on Rachio as it now requires our new license manager. We have not announced it as we are doing a slow roll out of the new BDM license manager and figured Rachio would be a good driver to start with. 

You need to install BDM (BlackWire License Manager) https://www.blackwiredesigns.com/manager/    here is more info on the manager https://www.blackwiredesigns.com/store/blackwire-driver-manager-for-control4/

Once you install BDM and set it up it will auto update the Rachio driver to the newest version. 

The Rachio update includes:

  • BDM Integration
  • The project property not saving correctly 
  • An additional fix for the property not saving on a reboot.
