There also may be a rebate available that could make it free after rebate depending on your area. The rebate info/link is listed on the Home Depot page under the price.

In my case, the rebate is given as a credit on my water bill.

Great smart controller FYI. Solid and reliable. Alerts via email if it looses connection. Also can be controlled via alexa but you really gotta write down the commands as its not too easy to remember if youre trying to do a specific zone.

I've been looking for a new irrigation controller, comparing the Orbit Bhyve, Rachio, and various Rainmachine models.

I liked that the bhyve has local control options- you can program and operate it manually if the internet is down or Orbit closes up shop and stops cloud support.

From what I have read, it seems that Rachio models require internet/cloud access.

But I'm pushed towards the Rainmachine (Pro or TouchHD) because in addition to local control and programming, they also have an open API (something it appears people have been clamoring for with Bhyve, unsuccessfully) which allows integrations with more home automation tech.

Massive sprinkler clearance at my Home Depot.

This wifi unit was $25, but sold out.
So I bought the nonwifi unit for $10.
