As some of you may have noticed things at SmartThings are kind of a mess while they transition to the new Mobile app. Basically any submissions to ST are taking many month’s to be processed. So the fixes that were sent to ST to address the Rachio API changes wouldn’t be reviewed for almost 4 month’s.
So I spoke with @franzgarsombke at Rachio and he gave me his blessing to release a community version of the Official Integration which I myself will maintain and be responsible for.
In it’s current state it’s code and functionally are the same as the official integration but I will eventually modify it to support multiple controllers. The only difference is how you authenticate, in this version you will obtain your API key from Rachio’s webapp instead of Signing in using Oauth. I’ve added the UI into the SmartApp to make this as seamless as possible.
Things to know
- If you have the official Integration installed you will need to remove it.
I recommend using the Community Installer:
