Customized for your yard, climate, and sprinkler system
Our controller waters based on the moisture in your soil and what your yard needs. We skip watering when it rains and if your soil has enough moisture for your lawn's roots and plants. No need to be a plant expert – we'll do that for you.
Intelligent watering for any outdoor space
Your yard is unique, so it shouldn't have to settle for one-size-fits-all watering. Give your yard what it really needs in the Rachio app:
Real-Time Water Changes
Plants naturally use more or less water throughout the seasons. We automatically adjust for that, saving you water while creating healthy plants.
Run Zones From Your Phone
Use your phone like a watering remote: select any zone to run or pause watering and more.
Troubleshoot your Sprinklers
Easily get to the root of most yard woes with our troubleshooting tool. Identify issues like lawn diseases, test sprinkler head coverage, and even make irrigation maintenance easier – all from your mobile device.
Best for your plants and your watering bill
Our problem-solving, proprietary watering algorithms use climate data, soil temperature, root depth data, and more to assess your soil's moisture & save water where it makes sense. See the proof on your water bill; feel it in a healthy yard you'll love spending time in!
