Rachio 3 Smart Sprinkler Controller Gains HomeKit Support

by John_A

Rachio today announced that it has added HomeKit support to its Rachio 3 Smart Sprinkler Controller, allowing the device to work with Siri and other HomeKit accessories to control sprinklers.

According to Rachio, its Smart Sprinkler Controller is the first sprinkler controller to offer HomeKit integration.

The Rachio 3 Smart Sprinkler Controller works with the Home app or through the Rachio app, and connected sprinklers can be controlled from any iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, HomePod, or Apple TV. With a HomePod or an Apple TV available for remote access, connected sprinklers can also be controlled when away from home.

“We are excited to bring HomeKit support to Rachio customers,” said Chris Klein, CEO and co-founder of Rachio. “HomeKit users already have a smart home, and now they can have a smart yard, too. Rachio consumers have been asking for HomeKit integration, and we are excited to deliver it to them with our new Rachio 3 Smart Sprinkler Controller.”

Rachio’s Wi-Fi connected Smart Sprinkler Controller, priced at $229, offers up features that include easy installation, a Flow Meter for monitoring water usage, and Hyperlocal Weather Intelligence for turning on sprinklers only in appropriate weather.

The Rachio 3 Smart Sprinkler Controller can be purchased from the Rachio website.
