Credit: Orbit B-hyve

No irrigation system? No problem. This wi-fi hose-faucet timer by Orbit has a "smart" watering system that gauges the ecological needs of your yard and allows you to control watering from your smartphone. Hook it up to a soaker hose or sprinkler, set your preferences and you're good to go (to work, on vacation, wherever you want -- without worrying about drought back home). Just input what you're growing (flowers, vegetables, a lawn), and the device will set watering times and durations accordingly. Since it's connected to the internet, it tracks the weather forecast and, accounting for actual rainfall, knows when to adjust its schedule. Requires iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch running iOS 10 or above, or Android version 4.3, and Bluetooth 4.0+. Also works with Amazon Alexa; $82.99 at  store.orbitonline.com.
