It may be winter, but it isn’t too soon to start thinking about having the perfect lawn come summer. Amazon offers the Rachio Second Generation Smart Eight-Zone Sprinkler Controller for $139.99 shipped. Normally selling for closer to $180, that takes $40 off the going rate and comes within $4 of the all-time low. Upgrade to the newer Third Gen. HomeKit-enabled Controller for $189.99. That takes $40 off the going rate, beats our previous mention by $10, and is the lowest price we’ve seen. Rachio’s controllers allow you to automate watering your lawn with hyperlocal weather forecasts, driving scheduling and more. Both models carry 4.6/5 star ratings from hundreds of customers.
