The city has purchased 275 Rachio 8-zone (2nd Generation) controllers that can be purchased by single-family homeowners (residents of Woodbury) who currently use traditional clock-based controllers for a discounted rate of $25 (retail value $199). In addition, the city is adding a second controller to compare the success seen with Rachio. There will be 25 Skydrop 8-zone smart irrigation controllers available to homeowners who wish to try this model at the same discounted cost of $25 (retail value $299). The Skydrop controller has the capability of controlling more than 8-zones with the addition of the expansion module. The expansion module is the resident's responsibility to purchase and install ($30 on Amazon). When applying, you will be prompted to indicate which controller you prefer.
