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

System requirements:

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.

App stopped working

The app stopped working, lights are fine but it just keeps cycling on “looking for systems”. I’ve restarted and updated everything, still not working. Very fragile app.

Rako App had stopped working

Rako fixed my system for me. (thanks Ben) A very quick response.
I had installed a Mesh wifi. And that was causing the problem (now fixed). Great customer service.
This was my problem (below)

“Hi, my Rako App has stopped working. It displays “Searching for Systems…” forever. I’ve rebooted the phone but still has the same message. Just checked and it’s not working on my iPad either. Strangely it still works on the swipe right from the Lock Screen, but I can’t adjust the channels from there. All of the light switches work ok. Can you please advise ASAP if this is an App or hardware fault. Steve”

Why have you changed the look?

I’ve been using the Rako app for years now, and loved it. It was always lighting quick and simple to use, with a familiar look due to the custom images for each room icon.

To my dismay, I opened the app just now to use it and find that the style of the app has completely changed and looks terrible now by comparison.

The app feels cheap and nasty to navigate and tomorrow I’m calling my Control4 dealer to get a quote on replacing the lot. I was already speaking to them about renewing the Rako keypads for newer versions, but after this I want it all gone. Rako have had the last of my money, and it’s a shame because their products have never let me down and I’ve recommended them to many.
