Rated 5 out of 5Â by River Water savings paid for the unit in one summer!
The IRO was simple to install and set my zones. Rachio understands customer service. The water savings are even more incredible. The Smart Cycle keeps my lawn looking very healthy using 50% less water than the old controller. Before the IRO my summer water bill averaged near $300 a month. With the IRO I am barely breaking $100 a month. Being environmentally green is saving me lots of economical green, while keeping my lawn a roll in the grass beautiful green! The system has paid for itself in just three summer months.

I recently purchased a 16 zone Rachio controller for a new sprinkler installation after an extensive online review of all the available devices I could find. This device was even better than advertised. The setup was so simple, the iphone App walks you through every step. The way it automatically connects to your wifi by just holding your iphone over the light sensor is brilliant. Being able to control my sprinklers from anywhere was great when we left for summer vacation, and the system is even smart enough to automatically delay my sprinklers based on the weather forecast. A feature I wasn't sure would work for me living in a small town in Canada.
I was also impressed with the personal support I received from Rachio when I did have a small issue with the device. They quickly responded to my e-mails, and resolved the problem quickly and professionally. High marks for customer service.
I highly recommend this product for anyone thinking of going to a cloud controlled sprinkler system, well worth the price.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Kenfused Excellent product and going to get better!
I bought this after eagerly replacing my Irrigation Caddy wifi controller. There is a world of difference in the two. Irrigation Caddy is like using a hacker friendly product like a 2002 net gear wireless router. The instructions on the other product were terrible and with poor build quality.
The Iro installation was great, like an Apple product with a Nest like installation. The blink up process was seamless using my ipod. Touch. Since iOs devices are easy to update, perhaps that is an advantage compared to reviewers complaining about the android version.
App is easy to use and I liked the setup where you get to name the zones and describe the soil type and Sun level.
I have not used the auto schedule yet but manual setup is the best I have seen for any sprinkler controller.

It was easy to install. I setup it all up through wifi in less than 10 minutes. I like the convenience of not having to be right next to it to turn it on and off. I can walk around and operate it from my iPhone. It asks you about what type of plants, soil type, slope, sun/shade, and irrigation system to figure out watering times. My only con is that the unit doesn't attach onto the back very easily.
