Smart Water Management uses Information and Communication Technology and real-time data and responses as an integral part of the solution for water management challenges. The potential application of smart systems in water management is wide and includes solutions for water quality, water quantity, efficient irrigation, leaks, pressure and flow, floods, droughts and much more.
Smart water management in commercial landscaping includes a smart irrigation controller. Simply stated, a smart irrigation controller or timer has built-in water saving features including the use of an onsite or remote weather station to provide the data for the controller to optimize sprinkler run time based on the local weather conditions. Smart controllers help to provide a healthy, beautiful commercial landscape while reducing water use. This not only saves water, but also reduces costs for the commercial property.
A smart controller is part of a properly designed, installed, operated, and maintained automatic irrigation system. The timer is responsible for activating each valve and for the amount of water applied to the landscape. It is important that an irrigation professional installs a smart controller to ensure it is set up properly for the water requirements of the landscape.

Smart irrigation is not only convenient and cost-effective, but it’s also simply the right thing to do. Water is becoming more and more scarce. Up to 70% of world’s water consumption is used for irrigation. It is not surprising that this is also where most of the water withdrawals are wasted. Up to half of the water we spend on irrigation is wasted due to inefficient irrigation methods. With smart irrigation, you’ll be doing a favor to yourself AND to the world.
