Looking for a smarter and hi-tech way to supply water to your lawn? The Rachio 3 smart sprinkler controller has your back in becoming the first smart sprinkler controller to add HomeKit support.

The Personal Water Supply Assistant will help you monitor and manage the sprinkler system by using the Apple Home application or asking Siri. This means you can stay in your garden maintenance town via your iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, Apple, or HomePod, even if you are not at home at that time.
