Take HomeKit control over lawn watering with the 8-zone Rachio 3 system at $132 (Reg. $200)

Reg. $200+ $132

Amazon is now offering the Rachio 3 Smart 8 Zone Sprinkler Controller (3rd Generation) for $131.74 shipped after you clip the on-page coupon. Regularly $200 and sometimes as much as $230 at Amazon, today’s deal undercuts the $180 Memorial Day pricing directly from Rachio and is the lowest we can find. You’ll also find the 16-zone model at $194.99 shipped, down from the regular $250. This watering controller delivers autonomous maintenance for your lawn and outdoor greenery with Alexa and Apple HomeKit support so you can take control of it from anywhere. It automatically creates “watering schedules that lower your water bill and ensure a beautiful yard” alongside accessing hyperlocal weather forecasts to avoid unnecessary watering “with features like rain skip, wind skip, freeze skip, and more.” It takes about 30 minutes to install with no special tools needed. More details below. 

A more affordable solution in the product category enters with the Orbit B-hyve 4-Zone Smart Indoor Sprinkler Controller. This delivers a similar experience with built-in Wi-Fi for Android, iOS or web app control at a far more affordable $67 price of entry. Just keep in mind it’s not as high-tech, doesn’t integrate with your HomeKit gear, and comes by way of a less popular brand than Rachio.
