Men’s Journal for Rachio

April 5, 2016

An update to the original Rachio, this smartphone-controlled irrigation system still uses local forecasts to optimize watering, cutting usage in half. But this iteration moves to the head of the class, thanks to its compatibility with a host of smart-home devices like Nest and Amazon Echo. You can even turn the sprinklers on and off with voice commands, which makes for a cool backyard party trick. Setup is easier, too, because there’s no longer a tedious smartphone-syncing process that never seems to work the first time. [$250; rachio.com]
