Update: Amazon is now offering the 16-Zone Rachio 3 Sprinkler Controller for $193.85 with the on-page coupon, down from its $255 going rate. You’ll also find the 8-zone model marked down to $175.47, an extra $15 off the original sale price.

Amazon is currently offering the 8-zone Rachio 3 Smart Sprinkler Controller for $189.99 shipped. Typically fetching $230, today’s offer is good for a $40 discount, comes within $6 of our previous mention, and is one of the best we’ve seen this year. Rachio’s third-generation sprinkler controller brings smart home control and other money-saving features into your system. Not only will you be able to call up Siri, Alexa, or Google Assistant to turn on your sprinkler, but built-in weather tracking technology ensures you won’t water on days where rain is expected. Over 830 customers have left a 4.6/5 star rating. Head below for more Rachio deals.

Amazon is also discounting the new 8-zone Rachio R3e Sprinkler Controller to $128.99 when clipping the on-page coupon. Down from $150, today’s offer is the second-best we’ve seen to date. This more affordable offering ditches the HomeKit support alongside some other higher-end features. Rated 4.6/5 stars from over 3,500 shoppers. Learn more about how it compares to the standard Rachio 3 in our launch coverage.

If you don’t have an existing sprinkler system but want to enjoy some of the same smart home perks as the Rachio, consider the Eve Aqua Smart Water Controller instead. Going with this accessory will only run you $94, saving quite a bit from the discount noted above. It works with Siri just the same, but will bring smart controls to an outdoor spigot.
