Keeping your lawn lush and green can be a difficult task with summer vacations, unpredictable storms, and temperature fluctuations, but a smart irrigation system can make lawn care easy.
Everyone wants a yard with soft, green grass to enjoy for summer barbecues, curb appeal, and a peaceful backyard oasis, but summertime can make it difficult to keep up with the proper watering to make it happen.
Overwatering can not only waste water but jeopardize the health of your lawn. It’s easy to overwater when your sprinkler system is on a schedule, but you forget to change it after a heavy rainstorm.
Underwatering can result in hard, dry, brown grass that both looks and feels unpleasant.
Smart Irrigation System
A smart irrigation system can make sure that all of your plants and grass get the proper amount of water every time.
Now, these systems are easy to program, more automated, and able to sync with your other smart home automation features.
You can use an app on your smart home to make changes remotely wherever you are (like if you are at work when a rainstorm hits and need to turn your sprinklers off. Some systems are even voice controlled, so with a simple spoken command, your system will easily adjust.
There are even some smart irrigation systems that are able to completely automate your watering schedule based on the air temperature, humidity level, and even the rain forecast. There are sensors that alert your system to whether your soil is dry and can activate that section of sprinklers, so you don’t have to think about it at all!
The most exciting part of this new technology is its integration with your smart home automation. Perhaps you have a sensor at the end of your driveway that can sense guests coming over and turn the sprinkler off. Maybe you’d like your sprinklers to run when you go to bed at night, so you have a good night button that will activate your sprinklers, security system, and turn off all of your lights, all with the touch of one button.
Using a smart irrigation system can give you a beautiful lawn that practically takes care of itself, allowing you to simply relax and enjoy your yard.
