Are you too lazy that you don’t want to walk outside to turn on the sprinklers? Or, if you’re like me, do you keep forgetting about watering the damn lawn? Well, here’s a gadget that’ll make controlling your sprinklers a little easier. Called the Remote Rain Water Control, the device comes with a wireless key fob transmitter and a receiver. Simply attach the receiver to your water source and flick the switch on the transmitter to send water to your sprinklers. To turn it off, just change the transmitter’s switch to “OFF” — no more going back and forth to the the faucet and no more getting off your ass.
The Remote Rain Water Control is powered by four AA batteries and has a range of 100 feet. It costs $69.99 at Improvements Catalog. For that price, I’d rather get a sprinkler timer. That way, I won’t have to worry about losing the transmitter or remembering to press the ON/OFF button. I’m forgetful, what can I say?
