Technology has impacted our lives, and the landscaping industry is not an exception. The same way you can control the thermostat in your home remotely with any handheld device, or your garage door opens without having to leave your car, you can enjoy the same level of control with your sprinklers. Most homes have a primary irrigation controller programmed to turn on sprinklers at a specific time, regardless of the soil conditions, weather, and other vital environmental factors. Atlanta Irrigation Company recommends upgrading smart irrigation systems that provide enhanced control and efficiency.
Aside from helping you save money and time, smart irrigation controllers help reduce your water usage, notifying you if there’s an issue. If you are still not convinced about upgrading from primary sprinkler controllers, here are some of the reasons why you should consider hiring a professional for smart irrigation system installation.
As the world takes an environmental approach to lower the effects of climate change, intelligent irrigation systems are an excellent way to save money and conserve the environment at the same time. Modern systems like the Hydrawise controller use Wi-Fi, leveraging the high accuracy weather data from the internet to adjust the amount of water your lawn receives. These systems can prevent your yard from turning into a wet, mosquito-infested area or brownish with brittle grass due to insufficient water. A smart irrigation system can save you up to 60% of your water.
Another feature that makes a smart irrigation controller more efficient is that it can be controlled from your phone. Homeowners can set a watering schedule using an app that allows them to adjust watering settings depending on the environmental conditions. Whether you are at work or travelling for the holidays, you can enjoy peace of mind knowing that your lawn is adequately taken care of in your absence.
Our experts provide top-notch irrigation system installation, ensuring you have all the information at your disposal to get the most out of your system. Using a virtual weather station, you can leverage satellite data, algorithms, data from nearby weather stations, and other sources to help you customize a suitable irrigation schedule.
Automation comes with many benefits that extend to the irrigation system installers. If a damaged component needs to be repaired or replaced, the information can be shared from your device to your installer. This saves a lot of time pinpointing the affected area manually and enhances the quality of service, reducing repair and maintenance costs.
Technology is considered more efficient and effective if integrated with other devices, which is another feature you get to enjoy with smart irrigation controllers. We can help you integrate these systems with several smart home systems, giving you maximum control over your irrigation system and usage.
