The Rachio 3 on sale for $184 gives you ultimate control over your sprinklers

The third-generation 8-zone Rachio Smart Sprinkler Controller (opens in new tab) is down to $183.99 at Woot for a limited time. That's almost $50 off its current price at Amazon (opens in new tab) right now and a match for the lowest we've ever seen it go. It's offered in new condition but is delivered in non-retail packaging which is the main reason why it has such a steep discount. It retains the 1-year Rachio warranty, though, and let's face it, you're not going to care about the packaging as soon as you have this thing open. Woot is also offering the second-gen Rachio system (opens in new tab) from $110.

The system's installation is very simple with no special tools required. Once it's in, the Rachio can monitor and manage how you use your water, set schedules, make automatic adjustments for the weather, integrate with Alexa, and more.
