Round Up: RainMachine HD-12 WiFi Sprinkler Controller

The RainMachine HD-12 WiFi Sprinkler Controller is an EPA Watersense certified smart irrigation system that will skip waterings if rain is in the forecast. The unit also integrates with IFTTT, which allows us more nerdy folks to connect to a ton of different services like Amazon’s Echo or Nest.

Changes to your watering schedule can be controlled without a device by using the 6.5″ touch screen. The unit is not weather resistant so you’ll need to mount it indoors. It also does not supply an input for a rain sensor, but they compensate with “hyperlocal” internet weather station integration.
