I am always surprised when I see an awesome connected accessory, and the Racho Iro is no exception. This connected sprinkler controller lets you manage your sprinkler system from anywhere in the world using just your smartphone. The controller is available for either 8 or 16 zones and lets you take charge of your system with everything from auto-scheduling to analytics & reports. Iro is smart enough to watch the weather too, so it can adjust on the fly no matter what the current conditions.
The Rachio Iro isn't a necessity for most people, but it's a very cool accessory that can add another level connectivity to your connected home. Our good friend Phil at Android Central went all-in with the Iro on his home system, so be sure to swing over to Android Central and check out his full review — it works with iOS too!
