Rachio adds voice control, a mobile app, and customization options to your yard. The biggest benefit to the Rachio system is the smarts of it, not the fact that it can simply turn your sprinklers on and off for you. It uses local weather forecasts to help you avoid watering your yard while it's raining, and you can set rain thresholds so it will skip watering if there has been enough, or is enough rain predicted for the near future. You can also start a quick run right from your phone, or even an Alexa-enabled device (opens in new tab) like the Echo Dot if you want some extra watering on a certain part of your yard.

The below ModernDad video shows you just how easy it is to set up and use this system, and you can check out the heaps of positive customer reviews (opens in new tab) at Amazon to find out what existing owners have to say about it. With an average rating of 4.6 stars out of 5 based on over 3,300 reviews, it's unlikely you're going to regret your purchase.

Shipping at Woot is free if you log in using your Amazon Prime (opens in new tab) account, otherwise it is an additonal $6. If you're not already set up with Prime, you can make the most of a 30-day free trial (opens in new tab) to try out all the service has to offer (including the free shipping at Woot).
