Asset Manager

The Asset Manager improves efficiency by letting you measure the impact of conservation efforts, changes in landscape, and pinpoint the location of various water control assets, from controllers to pumps, valves, sprinkler heads and more.


Budget Manager

The Budget Manager enables easy comparison between water bills over time. You can measure the efforts of conservation efforts, impact of changes in landscape or irrigation practices, differences in weather patterns, or more.

“Using the WeatherTRAK Central web-based platform is easy. It only takes one minute to make a programming change to all controllers, whereas it used to take all day to complete those site visits just to make a tiny change to the irrigation controllers.”

Flow monitoring

When used in conjunction with our Flow products:

General flow monitoring

  • Multi-user access via secure login with access levels
  • Monitoring six flow functions independently from one another: controller high flow, also known as catastrophic mainline break failure; station high flow; station no flow; station low flow; leak detection; extended leak management
  • User defined threshold flow values for each function independently
  • User defined delay time from 1-6 minutes in 1-minute increments
  • Flow threshold in 1 GPM increments up to 35 GPM and 5 GPM increments up to 995 GPM
  • Instant remote shut-off / event pause
  • Smart alert and email notification
  • Alerts dashboard and detail with drill-down interface

Station flow management

  • Station High Flow Threshold can be set independently by user, or globally as a % above learned flow rates
  • User override of any individual station assigned flow rates or Station High Flow Thresholds
  • Automatic fault of currently running stations when high flow, low flow is exceeded or below no flow rate threshold
  • Scheduled irrigation stops when 3 stations in a row have a no flow alert
  • Any station is excludable from station no flow monitoring

Mainline break management

  • Ability to monitor, fault and turn off all running stations and test to determine true mainline breaks
  • Support for Normally Open and Normally Closed master valves

Learned flow

  • User can configure any stations to be learned
  • Learned flow operation information stored
  • Historical values available in the controller change history tracking report

Leak detection

  • Leak detection notification indicates when station is not running scheduled or manual irrigation, and the system flow rate exceeds the leak threshold
  • Extended leak management enables lower leak detection thresholds while eliminating false alarms

Flow reporting

  • Settings Change History – station, program, and flow specific
  • Actual and estimated usage by site, controller, and station
  • Automatic daily or on demand upload of flow and runtime data to WeatherTRAK Central
  • Flow reports for single or multiple controllers across a customized date range
