When people think of “smart homes” they’re usually considering tech equipment you use indoors to control temperature, lights, or electronics. However, smart home features can up your outdoor curb appeal too, and the Rachio 3 Smart Sprinkler Controller uses AI to create forecast-inspired watering schedules that will keep your lawn green and clean.
The Rachio 3 is the only weather-controlled sprinkler that boasts hyperlocal Weather Intelligence, which automatically updates watering schedules based on rainfall predictions and readings. This way you’ll use less water when rainfall is heavy, saving you cash on your utility bills and preserving water for an environmentally-friendly approach. It installs in minutes with no special setup, and it links directly to your smartphone so you can control your home’s sprinkler from anywhere at any time. The system also integrates seamlessly with other in-home systems, like Amazon Alexa or Google Home — in fact, when you purchase a Rachio 3 controller you’ll get a free Google Home Mini, so you can try out a full-on smart home before making a big financial commitment.
The Rachio 3 Smart Sprinkler Controller normally costs $278.99, but right now it’s on sale for just $229.99 — that’s 17% off, and you’ll get a free Google Home Mini with your purchase.
