Rachio is responsible for some of the most popular smart sprinkler system controllers on the market, and its Black Friday deals are now live. The official Amazon storefront is now offering its 3rd Generation Smart 8-Zone Sprinkler Controller for $149.99 shipped, matching the direct pricing at $50 off the regular $200 price tag. This model can actually fetch as much as $230 at Amazon and is now sitting at one of the best prices we have tracked. Designed to automate your outdoor sprinkler system, it leverages intelligent analysis of your conditions including weather, plant type, and the “specific needs of your lawn” to automatically ensure the right amount of water is used. Features like rain, wind, and freeze skip alongside smart scheduling can also reduce water bills with support for local restrictions, and the whole thing can be installed in “30 minutes or less with no special tools needed.” Head below for more details.
