Update 9/27 @ 2:40 PM: Best Buy’s official eBay storefront offers the Rachio 8-zone 3rd Generation Smart Sprinkler Controller for $195.49 shipped with code PICKSOON. That’s $5 under the below promotion and the best available.
Earlier today, Rachio announced it would be bringing HomeKit support to its third-generation smart sprinkler controller. In celebration of the new update, Rachio is taking $30 off when you apply promo code HomeKit30 at checkout. That drops the 8-zone model down to $200 shipped and the 16-zone version to $230. Today’s discount matches our previous mention from earlier in the year and is one of the lowest offers we’ve tracked on this model. Rachio’s sprinkler controllers were already some of the most feature-rich options on the market. Now HomeKit support makes them a must-have for anyone looking to automate the watering of their lawns. Rated 4.7/5 stars from over 300 shoppers and is a #1 best-seller at Amazon.
