Review: Iris Smart Home Watering System

Now that it’s finally, truly, almost springtime where I live in Minneapolis, it’s time I got serious about my yard. Experts have told me that watering consistently is the only way to get a lush, green lawn. As I planned a tech-enabled automated watering system, I had visions of strolling across my property like Jason Day assessing his next putt at Augusta , not a single weed in sight.

Iris Smart Home Watering System

8/ 10

Wired

Comparatively low cost for the connected hub and the faucet timers. Incredible flexible with the types of sprinklers you can use, where you can water, and how often. Easy install—no digging or mounting.

Tired

Some dripping from the faucets will waste water. You might ask a plumber about water pressure issues and how many sprinklers you can run at one time. Additional Iris hardware may be required to shore up your network.
