Add homeowner value and maximize limited water resources.
Help meet growing water demands.
Reducing outdoor water use has become a top priority in communities across the U.S. In order to achieve their conservation goals, many water purveyors are considering implementing water use restrictions and regulations, which may make it more difficult for builders and developers to secure adequate water supplies for their projects.
At the same time, there is a trend underway in the building industry, led in large part by the preferences and demands of today’s homebuyers, to move toward more environmentally sustainable (or “green”) construction techniques and products.
“Smart” irrigation controllers are a proven, effective technology that meets the needs of both consumers and water purveyors—providing the environmental and ease-of-use benefits many homebuyers are seeking, while reducing demands on limited water resources and allowing communities to better ensure an ample supply of water for everyone as they continue to grow.
Reduce outdoor water use
“Smart” irrigation controllers maximize outdoor water use efficiency by using climate and site, or soil moisture data as a basis for irrigation scheduling, maintaining—and in many cases, enhancing—the health and beauty of landscaping.
Enhance homeowner convenience and satisfaction
"Smart" irrigation controllers work by monitoring and using information about site conditions (such as soil moisture, rain, wind, slope, soil, plant type, and more), and applying the right amount of water to the landscape based on those factors to maintain optimal growing conditions. So, once the "smart" controller is installed and set up, the "smart" controller automatically takes care of seasonal weather/site specific adjustments. There’s no need for the homeowner to monitor or manually adjust the controller each time the weather changes.
