Kansas City Smart Irrigation Systems

IDL Company’s commercial and residential lawn smart irrigation systems for your lawn are considered by most as the best in Kansas City.

What are Smart Irrigation Systems?

Smart home infrastructure is one of the leading trends today. It integrates the internet of things, or the IoT, into your home network to not only make your life easier but save you money as well. This has led to smart irrigation systems, but many people are still unsure of exactly what these are and why they may need one. Here’s more about what smart irrigation systems are and how they can benefit you and your lawn.

Smart Irrigation for Your Kansas City Lawn

Smart irrigation systems combine the usefulness of the IoT with the ease of automatic configuration and the benefits of saving money every day that the system is operational. When your smart irrigation system is installed, it will synchronize with the cloud service so that it can create a customized watering program for your lawn and surrounding landscaping. Each day your control unit will interface with the cloud service, and create a watering program based on that day’s weather forecast.

If the weather forecast indicates there will be rain on a particular day, for example, your system will automatically adjust the watering program based on the amount of rain expected. The same applies to days where there may be no rain, but very high temperatures, in which case the system will adjust the amount and frequency of irrigation needed to keep your lawn healthy.

The system will also store this program locally, as a redundancy, so that if the cloud service goes down or your home loses internet connectivity, your sprinkler system will be unaffected. This allows the system to continue to operate, watering your lawn according to the most recent program sync. This can help your household reduce the expense of irrigation considerably, compared to traditional timed irrigation schedules.

How Are Smart Irrigation Systems Installed?

Smart irrigation systems are generally installed in a very similar way to conventional sprinkler systems. The biggest difference there is the installation and configuring of the smart control head unit, which can be thought of as the brains of the entire smart irrigation system. If you already have an existing sprinkler system, in many cases it can be upgraded to a smart irrigation system with the addition of the needed components.

When you have an installation team come out to get your system installed, the first step is going to be determining the size and scope of the system your property will need. They will also consider any existing equipment that is installed, and whether that equipment can be integrated with your new smart irrigation controller. In most cases, simply adding the appropriate control unit and the necessary sensors will allow your system to be up and running in only 1-2 days depending on complexity.

Once your system has been fully installed and tested, the control unit will receive its initial programming and you will be shown how to configure and operate it. Smart irrigation systems can be controlled from a smartphone-based app or a computer, and in some cases, they can even be operated and updated by personal digital assistants like Alexa or Google Assistant. This will allow you to make changes or program updates quickly and easily, no matter where you are.

Why You Should Have Your Smart Irrigation System Installed Professionally

Conventional irrigation systems cannot match the efficiency and accuracy of leading smart systems, and even though they can accomplish the same thing, they are less accurate and highly inefficient by comparison. To change settings on your traditional systems, you need to be physically present at the control to adjust the various timers that dictate which spray heads operate and when. To update your smart irrigation system you only need to open the app and update the program, which you can accomplish even if you’re on the other side of the world on vacation.

Having smart irrigation systems professionally installed can mean the difference between a properly functioning, time-saving, and money-saving system, and an expensive troubleshooting mess in the future. While these systems are frequently able to be installed by a team of experienced professionals in just a day or two, missing one small connection or misplaced sensor can mean an entire section of your system waters too much, or even not at all, which can cost you money to fix and even potentially damage your lawn and landscaping.
