Basic Smart irrigation control utilizes at least one type of weather sensing device or input to adjust irrigation duration. These inputs are wired or wireless sensors on site or local weather data downloaded from an internet based weather station in your community. This is just the beginning. More advanced smart controllers can have inputs from soil moisture sensors and flow sensors. They will also have programming software to create calculated irrigation schedules according to site conditions and type of irrigated material. The functionality and applicability of controllers can vary substantially along with the cost of equipment.
Choosing the correct controller usually requires some thought along with experience with the constantly evolving equipment currently available on the market. All new standard irrigation controllers installed by Finnamex allow web based access and control by our admin staff to aid clients in managing their controllers without having to visit the site or the controller itself. We have options available for budgets large and small.
