What are Smart Controllers?
We access and program the controllers through the internet. Each zone can be programmed differently with parameters such as Irrigation Method, Type of Sprinkler Head, Lawn or Plant Type, Slope of Ground, Type of Soil, Amount of Sun, Root Depth, and Effective Rain Fall.
Once a day the controller receives weather data from the previous day and calculates zone watering times.
This means that your landscape will receive the water it needs more efficiently and water savings = money savings.
How do the controllers connect to the Internet?
There are two types of controllers. The first connects to the Internet through an Ethernet cable to your Modem/Router just like your computer so it will need to be installed and wired to your Modem/Router. The second type connects to the Internet via Sim card just like your cell phone so is wireless and can be installed anywhere there is a good signal.
You can access your controller from any device that has access to the Internet. There is an App that allows you to control your Irrigation zones manually from your smart phone.
Water savings = Money savings
