Introducing the companion app to the much anticipated Iro cloud-connected sprinkler controller.

The majority of the time you want your home systems to operate silently and efficiently in the background, taking care of your household while you live
your daily life. There are times though when you want to engage with your home and land in fun and inspiring ways.

Our smartphone app puts the power of your sprinkler system in the palm of your hand. We’ll let you know what’s going on with your system and you can adjust
it from there as you see fit.

Accessibility Comments: 

the current version, 1.8, is completely accessible to VoiceOver. Controls are clearly labelled, and all features can be accessed. Installation of the controller itself does need some sighted assistance, but this is for the hardware, not installing or linking the app to the hardware. the folks at Rachio are completely committed to working with VoiceOver, and tech support is great. I was invited to help beta test version 1.8, and was very impressed with the experience. I beta tested with IOS 8.1 on the iPad Mini, and am running it on the iPhone 4s with IOS 7, which works equally well.

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads all page elements.

Button Labeling: 

All buttons are clearly labeled.

The app is fully accessible with VoiceOver and is easy to navigate and use.
