Rachio is getting in on the Prime Day action with some great deals on its smart sprinkler controllers, both the type that control in-ground irrigation systems and the new hose-based timer that’s great for hand-watering and drip irrigation.
We named the Rachio 3 our top pick in smart sprinkler controllers (underground irrigation systems), and the price of the Rachio 3 16-zone controller has been slashed to $181.40 for Prime Day; that’s a significant savings from its $249.99 MSRP. Prices for the Rachio 3 8-zone controller have been similarly chopped to $139.99 If you need to cover a smaller lawn, take a look at the Rachio 3 4-zone controller, which is selling for $110 during the Prime Day sale, a significant discount over its $149.99 list price.
Irrigating with a garden hose or a drip system doesn’t mean you can automate your watering practices. Our hands-on review found the Rachio Smart Hose Timer to be an excellent device for the task, and it comes with a Wi-Fi hub that will support up to three additional smart timers to ensure no area of your lawn or garden is neglected.
Act quickly: Prime Day ends at midnight on Wednesday, July 12.
