Frequently Asked Questions
Can I control the box when travelling without any subscription to a cloud service?
Yes, you can. You have 2 options: use the cloud system (free) and you do not have to do any additional settings, or, setup your own port forward rules in your router and be 100% independent of our cloud.
Is it possible to set up and operate from the box itself, without using a mobile device?
Yes, it is. You can start and stop watering for each zone from the device itself.
Can this be upgraded to 16 zones?
No, this is for 8 zones. a regular Rainmachine is capable of 12 zones, I suppose that you could put in two Rainmachine Mini-8, this would always give you semi-redundant coverage in case one device failed. RIO has a 16 zone device, but I don't think you would like it as well as a RainMachine.
