This Smart Sprinkler Controller Can Slash Your Water Bill (And It’s on Sale)

First you’ll save on the sprinkler controller, then you’ll save on your water bill.


Rachio is one of the biggest names in smart lawn care, and the Rachio Smart Sprinkler Controller is the company’s latest-and-greatest smart sprinkler controller. It connects to your current sprinkler system and allows you to set watering schedules and turn on/off the system remotely. The smart thing about the Rachio is that it’s connected to Wi-Fi and knows the weather; it can determine the moisture level of the soil and therefore make smart decisions on how much water your lawn (or certain flower patches) needs. For example, if you’ve set a watering schedule but it’s raining, the Rachio will know that — no more sprinklers in the rain. The Rachio is also compatible with Alexa, Google Assistant, Apple’s HomeKit and Nest, so you should have no issue integrated it with your current smart home ecosystem.

The main goal of the Rachio is to save you money by reducing your monthly water bill. And now, on Amazon Prime Day, you can save $50 on the Rachio 3 right out of the gate even before you start reaping those water bill savings.
