Say goodbye to your old-school sprinkler and hello to your new smart sprinkler system. With the summer approaching, you're going to want the latest and greatest for your home, which includes the landscape. A big part of curb appeal is the lawn, and with a smart sprinkler system, you'll be sure to keep your yard looking prestigious. There are many systems to choose from, but we've come up with 3 of the best to consider installing for your home when the warmer months hit.
Skydrop Halo Smart Sprinkler System
A very cost-effective and easy setup, Skydrop’s system is equipped to work with Google Home as well as Amazon Alexa, and it's all connected through an app. The installation process is simple and straightforward, so it's perfect for even the non tech-savvy. It's super lightweight at only 1.9 pounds, has eight zones to control, and is EPA WaterSense Certified.
Skydrop uses some of the best in class hyper-local weather data from local weather stations to learn how much water your yard and landscaping needs. It takes into consideration real-time precipitation, humidity, temperature, wind, solar radiation, slope and soil condition. You can also save an average of 20% on your home water bill, saving you money in the long run.
Orbit B-hyve Smart Sprinkler System
If you have the time for this lengthy installation, it's worth it. The best part about this one is that with this system, you get a more advanced forecast system that inspects dirt moisture, usage history (which requires a bit of use to really utilize this feature), and multiple other methods to detect if it should either water the lawn, or just let it be. This method saves you a lot of money, and the unit itself also consumes a very low amount of power, making it beneficial to your electric bill as well.
The programmable app works on both the iOS and Android apps as well as web apps, letting you control the system from anywhere, and is EPA WaterSense certified. It also can run through six different WiFi channels.
