Most smart home products are designed to lend a hand inside your home, but Rachio's Smart 16-Zone Sprinkler Controller (2nd Gen) is one that focuses on your lawn instead. Now, thanks to Amazon's Prime Day, you can pick one up for just $148.87 to make sure your yard is always taken care of. That's nearly $15 lower than it's ever been before there and $50 off its regular price these days, though this Lightning deal has the chance of selling out at any time.

As with all Prime Day deals, you'll need to have an Amazon Prime membership to score this discount. If you're not a member yet, starting a free 30-day trial will make your account eligible instantly.

This smart sprinkler controller connects to your Wi-Fi network at home and uses local weather forecasts to help you avoid watering your yard while it's raining. You're also able to set rain thresholds so it skips watering if it rained recently, or if enough rain is predicted in the future. It's compatible with an app on your phone that allows you to start your sprinklers instantly, and with an Echo Dot or another Alexa-enabled device, you can even control your sprinklers with your voice.

Another member of Team Thrifter is enamored with his Rachio controller: "Each month the system intelligently updates its scheduling (depending on which mode you use) and as the seasons change it adapts as well. I've been using a Rachio system for just over a year now, and I can't live without it. The days of watering my yard while it's raining, or having expensive bills because I didn't know how to properly water my yard are now a thing of the past. At this price, your yard deserves one of these!"
