HERE’S WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN AN IRRIGATION SYSTEM:
Centralized Monitoring and Control Are Key to Smart Water Management
Managing water requires being where the water is. Since you can’t physically be on site 24/7, centralized monitoring, control and access offers you better visibility on water usage and status. You’ll save time and money while managing your water more effectively.

Anytime, Anywhere Access

  • Monitor from any device via an Internet browser vs. an immobile, dedicated device
  • Smartphone and tablet access to support workers in the field
  • Allow setting changes at either the controller or remotely
  • Allow setting changes across multiple controllers, even on different sites vs. one controller at a time
  • Locate sites and controllers using GPS to save time

“The usability from a technician’s standpoint is huge. It only takes us a couple clicks to make changes with WeatherTRAK, whereas it would take up to a half hour to make those same changes with a competitor’s controller.” – Daniel Levine, Maintenance Manager at ValleyCrest Landscape

Alerts and Notifications

  • Be alerted of issues in real time, not based on user-initiated requests or at a set time once per day
  • Unlimited number of alerts sent to as many people as specified
  • Alerts sent via SMS (text) or email

Built-in Communications

  • Controller communications capabilities built in at the start
  • Communications should not introduce additional complexity (think IT support, installation and maintenance) or hidden costs
