Rachio Launches New Smart Sprinkler Controller
Rachio launches its Rachio 3 smart sprinkler controller along with hyperlocal weather support, according to a report published on March 20, 2018.
These sprinklers are third generation automated sprinkler hardware. The second generation model has been upgraded by adding hyperlocal weather, dual-band Wi-Fi support, easy-press connectors for seamless installation, extra hardware controls, and compatibility with the new Rachio 3 Wireless Flow Meter. It can preordered now and is available at a price of US$ 249. Their smart sprinklers have been very successful in the market and has secured an additional US$ 10 million in Series B funding. Sprinklers are useful in drought-stricken area and in watering plants.
The hyperlocal Weather Intelligence Plus in the new Rachio 3 tells the sprinkler when to water and saves the environment and money that has to be paid on water bill. Christ Kine, CEO of Rachio said, “With more than sixty percent of residential water waste in the United States occurring outdoors, our new products empower consumers to be smarter with water, so they don’t have to choose between conservation and easily maintaining a beautiful landscape.” The weather at our home cannot be determined by the hyperlocal weather, however, it is able to take into account available data nearby to get a much better idea.
This new technology that will be useful in houses, plant nurseries and areas affected by drought is expected to increase the growth of smart home appliances market.
