rachio platform allows you to control your Rachio irrigation system.
There is currently support for the following device types within Home Assistant:
They will be automatically added if the Rachio integration integration is loaded.
- Log in at https://app.rach.io/.
- Click the “Account Settings” menu item at the bottom of the left sidebar
- Click “Get API Key”
- Copy the API key from the dialog that opens.
Rachio go to Configuration >> Integrations in the UI, click the button with
+ sign and from the list of integrations select Rachio.
Alternatively, add the following to your
# Example configuration.yaml entry rachio: api_key: YOUR_API_KEY
manual_run_mins to a high maximum failsafe value when using scripts to control zones. If something goes wrong with your script, Home Assistant, or you hit the Rachio API rate limit of 1700 calls per day, the controller will still turn off the zone after this amount of time.
If you would like to see and control more detailed zone information, create an iFrame that renders the Rachio web app.

rachio switch platform allows you to toggle zones and schedules connected to your Rachio irrigation system on and off.
Once configured, a switch will be added for every zone that is enabled on every controller in the account provided and a switch to start or stop every schedule on a controller. There will also be a switch to toggle each controller’s standby mode, as well as to activate a 24 hour rain delay on the device.
In this section, you find some real-life examples of how to use this switch.
