The application gives control of any room, whether it be lighting or curtain/blind control. Access to all available rooms, scenes and channels, all of which can be named for easy identification.
The App can be used with existing wireless systems, the new wired network or combined systems. No configuration by the user is required, all information is stored within the Rako ethernet bridge
To allow the iPhone to communicate with the network a Rako APR-Bridge (for use with wireless-only systems) or WRE-Bridge (for wired or hybrid wireless systems) needs to be installed along with a wireless router for the Wi-Fi link with the iPhone™. The Bridge needs to be uploaded with the RASOFT programming file of the project. The file can either be an existing project file, if available, or created using the Rasoft programming software (included) which requires a PC running Windows XP or Vista.
We update the Rako app to make it faster and more reliable for you. Here are a couple of the enhancements you'll find in the latest update:
- iPhone X & iPhone Xs support
- Support for iPad multitasking
Ratings and Reviews
I would like to add this app to my iMac and controls my lights and also using 4G to switch off and on from my iPhone. It is very good app.
Potential not realised
The app does exactly what it is designed to do and it does it well. The problem is that it still isn't designed to work with Siri or Apple HomeKit. This would really turn the app into a 5 star product.
Lovely app but with 3.5.1 update the screen has shrunk and I’m struggling to see it, on my iPhone XS Max, without my glasses which wasn’t the case before.
I hope this changes soon.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
