A smart irrigation system helps in ensuring an efficient watering regime that meets specific landscape needs. A smart irrigation controller provides a more convenient method of improving outdoor water use efficiencies. 

A smart irrigation controller acts like a thermostat that automatically adjusts your sprinkler system schedule to match the weather data, soil type and other site conditions in real time. This maximises irrigation efficiency, effectively reducing water waste without compromising plant health and quality.  

Here at Smart Water, we have a range of smart irrigation controllers that can help you achieve the best results.
