WIRED for Rachio

April 26, 2016

Thankfully, there’s an array of smart systems to alleviate the confusion around watering. Blossom, Rachio, and Lono are sprinkler controllers for preinstalled sprinkler systems. Aside from letting you program your watering schedule from an app, these devices monitor local weather data from the Internet. If it just rained, a network-connected sprinkler following the forecast would know, and will refrain from soaking your lawn or your garden. Your water bill won’t needlessly inflate, and it cuts down on waste. According to the EPA, about 30 percent of domestic water use goes to lawns and gardens, and about 50 percent of outdoor water use is wasted due to evaporation, wind, or poorly designed systems.
