These partnerships have really resonated with our community, and we’re excited to expand our marketplace to make the smart yard a part of everyone’s home.”

To kick off the growing season and warmer weather ahead, Rachio has expanded its marketplace by adding premier outdoor lifestyle and sustainable products including:

Above Smart Umbrella – A solar-powered connected patio umbrella that automatically closes in windy conditions or can be controlled with a remote, making setup and takedown effortless. Featuring an LED light and solar panel for power, the Above Umbrella is brand new, and perfect for anyone building the ultimate smart yard.

BioLite FirePit+ – This exciting new smart fire pit includes a battery-powered fan to control flame intensity, and runs on either wood or charcoal. It’s easily controlled through BioLite’s free app or buttons on the long-lasting battery. A unique conversation-starter, it’s great for backyard hangouts or campsite grilling.

Among the notable mission-driven brands available at Rachio Market is Root Quencher, a brand with three underground watering products that delivers water directly to tree and plant roots, effectively minimizing surface evaporation and reducing water waste by 50%.

Rachio has also partnered with WeatherFlow since the inception of Rachio Market to offer the Tempest Weather System, which directly integrates with Rachio watering devices. The Tempest Weather System provides hyper-local and precise weather forecasting, enabling Rachio controllers to skip watering when it rains and avoid unnecessary water usage.

Rachio’s advanced watering devices incorporate built-in weather intelligence and cutting-edge features like Rain Skip and Seasonal Shift, allowing users to save at least 50% more water compared to traditional sprinkler controllers.
