Questions on Rachio, gate, Google Assistant

Hello all, I have three questions today.

First, I had to replace my Rachio controller. ADC is still linked to the old one and is showing a malfunction. I want to remove the old and connect the new. How can I do this?

Second, I have a MyQ operated garage door and driveway gate. Both of them used to show on the IQ Panel 2, but I’ve noticed that only the garage door shows now. How can I get the gate back on there also?

Third, is there a document explaining which Google Assistant commands play nice with with ADC? I’m having trouble with commands for my garage door/gate and lights. It says something like “I found multiple matching lights” or “I found multiple matching garage doors” even though I have distinct names for everything.

Thank you.

I’ve cleared the old Rachio device for you from the account. You can sync up your new one via the same process in the Irrigation card on the app home page.

Can you try updating to the latest firmware per instruction here? Any change?

Looking at the names in your device list I think this may be a likely issue you are having. From ADC:

  • Avoid using plurals of the reserved words to prevent accidental grouping (e.g., lights, switches, dimmers, shades, bulbs, doors, locks, deadbolts, knobs, garage doors, or gates). Doing so will automatically recognize the device as a group.

I see a lot of lighting devices with “Lights” as the last word in the name. That will likely cause an issue per the ADC notes.

If you give a command for the Garage, it looks like the name is just “Garage” not “Garage Door” which is also a possible point of confusion. If you just give a command for “garage” and do not specify door, does it work?
