Tel Aviv, Israel (PRWEB) May 24, 2016
From connected thermostats to coffee makers, the indoor smart home movement is thriving, but our luscious lawns and outdoor spaces still hold huge potential. IoT startup and smart, wireless irrigation controller manufacturer, GreenIQ is looking to change this paradigm by leading the smart garden revolution with its latest integration with luxury building and home automation systems provider, Crestron.
Through Crestron’s sleek touch screens or a simple tap of an Android or iOS smartphone, Crestron customers – from single homeowners through to building and business campus managers – can now fully automate and more easily monitor and manage irrigation schedules through the combined use of intelligent soil and moisture sensors and hyper-local weather information. This saves Crestron customers up to 50 percent on outdoor water consumption.
Other key customer benefits include:
- Greater Control – Manage one to several irrigation systems, giving customers the freedom to remotely control their irrigation systems, whether that is for their own sweeping landscapes or for larger green spaces like business campuses or golf courses.
- Useful Insights – Through an easy-to-use dashboard and mobile app, customers can monitor and gain key insights about their green spaces, such as a potential leakage or insufficient water flow.
- Determine Ideal Watering Conditions – Made possible by GreenIQ’s connected garden ecosystem, customers can automatically adjust irrigation schedules based on hyper-localized weather information from Netatmo’s Weather Station and Rain Gauge as well as soil moisture sensor data from Parrot’s Flower Power , and PlantLink.
- Easy to Understand Water Consumption Measurement - By adding GreenIQ’s flow meter, Crestron customers can review daily and weekly water consumption, so that they can better manage water usage and easily detect sprinkler faults or garden system anomalies.
“According to a recent survey by Coldwell Banker, almost half of Americans either own or plan to invest in smart home technology in 2016. Our goal is to meet this demand by continually expanding our ecosystem of sensors and devices to help make also outdoor spaces smarter,” said Odi Dahan, CEO at GreenIQ. “We are thrilled to have joined forces with Crestron, as it means we are now able to bring the same level of control and convenience that consumers have come to expect indoors to the outdoors, while also helping their residential and professional lawn care customers to more easily manage, save money, conserve water and improve the overall health of their green spaces.”
GreenIQ’s Smart Garden Hub was recently recognized as a finalist at the 3C Smart Cities Challenge for its innovative approach to the connected garden and positive impact on water conservation. The competition was held in Tel Aviv with cooperation from the Brazilian government, Italian group, Planet Idea, the Tel Aviv University center for entrepreneurship, Startau, and the Israeli innovation center.
