With weather as unpredictable as we have here in the Reno/Sparks area, it can be difficult to know just how much water our lawns need.   But there’s a product on the market called Skydrop that takes out the guess work.  The Skydrop Wi-Fi Sprinkler Controller uses local weather reports and your lawn’s current condition to determine whether or not your lawn needs watering.  Not only that, Skydrop can be controlled via an app on your phone, and can even be programmed to follow local watering restrictions.  Other programmable features include what types of plants you’re watering and the time of day you prefer.

Skydrop has a sleek design and is as easy to install as a new thermostat.   It has a 4.3-inch LCD screen and jog dial that not only looks smart, but is also easy to use.  And you decide how you want to control it, either via the unit itself, the web portal, or the convenient phone app for both iOS and Android.
