The most consistent question I get on my YouTube videos is “What about the Skydrop?” Now that I’ve got my hands on the 8-Zone Skydrop smart sprinkler controller I can finally answer that question.
The Skydrop checks almost every box on paper, it has apps for iOS and Android, web control, manual controls and EPA WaterSense certification. It’s not weather resistant, so you’ll need to buy an external housing if you need to mount it outdoors.
It also doesn’t incorporate IFTTT quite yet, but it’s coming soon in an update.
Check back soon and I’ll have my setup & install report as well as my review after I give it a test ride for 2 weeks.
