It takes a lot of work to maintain a lush lawn all year long. Even with lawn sprinkler systems, Long Islanders can have difficulty keeping on top of it all. Increasingly, local homeowners are choosing to install smart sprinklers, which take some of the work out of yard work.
What are Smart Sprinklers?
Smart lawn sprinkler systems are an installable digital device that automates a home’s in-ground irrigation. It can independently monitor and regulate water usage, or be adjusted via a mobile app.
The 4 Main Selling Points of Smart Lawn Sprinkler Systems
Adding a smart controller to a sprinkler system can be a valuable addition to any home. As homeowners prepare for the spring planting season, consider these four advantages of installing automated lawn sprinkler systems.
1) Requires Less Attention
With a smart sprinkler, homeowners can quite literally set it and forget it. There’s no longer a need to worry about when is best to water or how often to do it. This intelligent solution takes the guesswork out of watering a lawn.
2) More User Control
A smart sprinkler system is designed to make anyone’s life easier. With user-friendly app controls, sprinklers can be adjusted with the touch of a button.
In fact, watering schedules can be updated from anywhere that has an internet connection. This technology gives homeowners the ability to schedule, adjust and make any necessary changes on-the-fly.
In addition, these smart systems can provide updates and notifications when they are away from home.
3) Monitors Weather Changes
One of the most attractive features of smart lawn sprinkler systems is their ability to monitor the weather and make adjustments to watering schedules based on data, such as:
- Rainfall levels
- Soil moisture
- Projected weather conditions
For example, these types of sprinklers could even adjust watering to approaching weather conditions before a homeowner realizes it is going to rain.
4) Reduces Water Consumption
Although all sprinkler systems have an upfront cost, homeowners can save money over time. A smart system typically reduces household water consumption.
Instead of wasting water on rainy days, these irrigation systems will not run when watering is not needed. After installation, homeowners can be confident in using the appropriate amount of water and not a drop more. As a result, monthly water bills tend to drop.
Smart sprinklers are now frequently included in home irrigation projects today, because of the short- and long-term benefits they can provide.
