The Rachio IRO WiFi Sprinkler Controller is the most popular of all the smart irrigation controllers. It is made in the USA and integrates with smart home APIs like SmartThings, Nest and IFTTT. It will skip a watering if rain is in the forecast and even keeps track of your use for data nerds.
The controller is not weather resistant, so you can’t mount it outdoors without a protective case. The unit cannot be controlled manually, so you will always need a device to program it.
