Skydrop’s controllers use adaptive algorithms to generate custom and dynamic watering schedules from weather data
Internet of Things (IoT) technology specialist, Tri Cascade, has formed a strategic partnership with smart irrigation company, Skydrop, to implement smart water management products in neighbourhoods and cities in the US.
Tri Cascade has developed a full suite of smart products designed for integration during home construction through advanced IoT and narrowband-IoT (NB-IoT) technology. With the integration of Skydrop’s smart ARC sprinkler, Tri Cascade can extend the company’s integrated technology to landscaping for smart homes, neighbourhoods and cities.
“Water management is a critical piece of a truly smart- and resource-efficient home, with water rates climbing and new restrictions being passed our Skydrop product will help homeowners monitor and remotely manage their outdoor water use, save water, and save money,” said Brandon Kennedy, CEO of Skydrop.
Tri Cascade’s IoT platform is able to bring all smart devices together, with voice control, delivering an easier install for the builder and an all-in-one platform for the homeowner.
Skydrop’s smart sprinkler controllers are built with adaptive algorithms integrated to generate custom and dynamic watering schedules from weather data and automatically determine the optimal watering schedule for each one of a homeowner’s lawn zones. The technology adjusts watering cycles, duration and frequency based on a precise calculation of the moisture in a home’s soil. The system knows how much water a landscape is losing and when it’s losing it.
“The vision and technology behind Skydrop’s smart home sprinkler technology closely aligns with Tri Cascade’s vision for the smart neighbourhood,” said Max Li, president and CEO of Tri Cascade. “Tri Cascade is dedicated to providing energy efficient, voice-activated, built-in smart home solutions that make the homeowner’s life easier and that’s exactly what Skydrop’s smart watering technology does.”
