You don’t ever want to be the guy in the neighborhood who’s sprinkler is running in the middle of a rainstorm. If your sprinkler system is on a regular timer, Rachio can help.

The Rachio 3 Smart Sprinkler Controller is connected to the cloud (how appropriate) so you can run your sprinkler system anywhere, anytime, from your smartphone. Better yet, the Rachio app will recommend days and times for watering based on location, vegetation and soil type. It references satellite, radar and weather station data to provide schedule adjustments accurate to within a 36-foot radius of the controller.

It also connects with most smart home systems like Alexa, Google Assistant, Nest and Apple HomeKit. Just don’t abuse your new found power by telling Alexa to hose down the neighbors walking on your lawn.
