Controlling your home’s temperature, turning off the lights and turning on appliances all from your smartphone or tablet may seem like science fiction. However, thanks to “smart home” technology, it’s more like science fact! Wi-fi-enabled home appliances and utilities have been around for a while now, and the technology has finally reached sprinkler system installation in Fort Lauderdale, FL. Keep reading to learn more about wi-fi sprinkler systems!
What is a wi-fi sprinkler system?
A wi-fi sprinkler system is just what it sounds like: a sprinkler system that can be controlled with your smartphone, tablet or any device that has wi-fi connectivity. Instead of getting up to turn your sprinkler system on and off, all you need to do is open up the sprinkler app and touch a button for ultimate control over your yard’s sprinkler. These wi-fi sprinkler systems are becoming increasingly popular across the country, as well as more and more affordable for any budget.
Why should I install one?
We wouldn’t recommend installing a wi-fi sprinkler system if it didn’t come with a number of benefits. Here are just a few reasons why our customers choose these new systems over old technology:
- Set your sprinkler from anywhere: Are you at the office but forgot to set your sprinkler before you left the house? That’s no big deal if you have a wi-fi sprinkler system! Simply open the app and turn your sprinkler on and off, or set a timer with the touch of a button. This feature is super handy when you’re not at home, but it can also be nice to have when you just don’t feel like getting up from the couch!
- Simple control over your lawn: Anyone with a sprinkler system will tell you that controlling how much water every inch of the yard gets is tricky and time consuming. Those days are gone thanks to wi-fi sprinkler systems. The app quickly lets you see and manipulate how much water certain areas of your lawn are getting to ensure you’re not over- or underwatering your lawn.
- Monitor water flow: Are some parts of your lawn not receiving water because of a clog or a damaged pipe? Realizing there’s a situation and then finding and fixing the problem used to take days (if not weeks) with older technology, but with a wi-fi sprinkler system, you’ll know the second there’s an issue with water flow, and a professional can come to fix it as soon as possible.
- Weather forecasting: Needless to say, you don’t need to water your lawn when there’s a rainstorm heading your way. Instead of checking the weather each morning to see whether or not you need to set your sprinkler system, all you need to do is open up your sprinkler app! The app will give you an up-to-the-minute forecast and tell you whether or not you’ll need to use the sprinklers given the conditions.
