The Advantages of Smart Irrigation Systems

Smart Home irrigation systems deliver exactly the amount of water that is needed. This helps keep plants and lawns healthy and beautiful.

Here Are The Top 6 Benefits of Adding Smart Irrigation To Your Smart Home System

1. Save Water And Money

Smart Home irrigation systems deliver exactly the amount of water that is needed. This helps keep plants and lawns healthy and beautiful.

You can save water not only through integrating smart home irrigation systems but you can also add to the savings yourself with a few simple routine actions:

  • Break up your lawn and plant areas in your smart irrigation system programming into “zones” that have different watering needs in the fluctuating Texas weather.

  • Periodically make certain the water heads are always aimed at the plants and lawn and never moved to point at your driveway, house, or patio. You can test this using your app to trigger zones manually, making certain everything is aligned correctly.

  • Water at the time of night of key absorption without the Texas sun evaporating the water away fast. Just after sundown is not good enough. Give the ground a couple of hours to drop in temperature.

2. Long Term Enhanced Landscape Health

Smart irrigation controllers can be adjusted to water yards and plants the exact amount of water needed so they can thrive. Some smart controller options adjust for the soil type as well which cycles and soaks your irrigation in the perfect increments of time, so water is absorbed and doesn’t run off.

They also adjust for rain and forecasts of rain which prevents overwatering that can harm your lawn and plants.

3. Protect The Community’s Water Supply For Generations

By saving water, you are helping to maintain the water supply for your community because you will be continuously saving and protecting water.

In addition, you will be supporting green businesses that deliver meaningful environmental protection. You will also be a positive example to the rest of your community and possibly inspire others to make the commitment to saving water as well. 

4. Prepare For The Future Of Water Pricing

Facts About Water Use:

  • One-third of the U.S. now pays more for water than electricity. Water rates are continuing to rise and water is generally a top operation cost.

  • The cost of water is rising faster than all other utility costs. Those rates will continue to rise to pay for infrastructure improvements.

  • A smart irrigation controller can help you get ahead of the water cost curve and help the planet by conserving your water resources.

5. Make Maintaining Your Yard Easy And Convenient

Of course you are wondering, is it more work to operate a smart irrigation system? The answer is no.

In the past few years, smart irrigation technology has evolved to the point where we now have access to automatic sprinkler systems data that will help the system deliver the right amount of water and only distribute water when water is needed. This data is very accurate and extremely effective.

Think of your yard as the dust-cover of a book. Believe it or not, it says everything about you as a home owner. You want to make the best impression in your neighborhood starting with your lawn. First impressions, right? Adding or updating an irrigation my seem like a daunting task but it really is worth the effort and money spent. In the long run, doing so is going to save you money.

To begin with, let’s talk about auto scheduling. Your time is very valuable and taking care of a lawn can take up a lot of time if you’re doing it yourself. If you use a gardener or service, the installation of an irrigation system makes cutting and trimming much easier, because your regular watering promotes a healthier blade of grass that mows better and still looks great.

*The calculated home technology budget range you will receive will includes parts, labor & accessories (Tax not included)
(a round number is OK)
Numerous structures on the property: Dock, Casita, Guest House, Barn, Gate etc. Check all that apply.
Prewire installation calculations assume you would like your home fully wired for ALL home automation technologies shown throughout the budget calculator, including 'future-ready' wiring. Prewire pricing can vary substantially based on what features you would like in your home. The wiring budget is for low-voltage wiring, not for electrical.
Prewire pricing will vary based on exactly what features you would like in your home. Read this article about the importance of wiring/cabling in today's "wireless" world. Your local Smarter Homes integrator is the best resource for exact prewire pricing. Wiring budget is for low-voltage wiring only, not electrical.
Keep in mind that our modern lifestyle and our home's automation technology systems are extremely reliant on a quality network and Wi-Fi system. Most homes are moving towards enterprise-grade hardware and away from the types of network products you could buy in an office supply store or a consumer computer store. We recommend that all homeowners consider the network and Wi-Fi system to be the most important system and installation within the home.
Higher-quality sound or higher-grade architectural finished speakers can range from $5,000.00 to $10,000.00 PER ROOM
Basic background music system pricing ranges from $1,500.00 to $5,000.00 per room including all equipment, labor, and programming.
Range includes video sources such as AppleTV, a Blu-ray player, satellite receiver, and remotely-locating them for best aesthetics. A basic soundbar is included for better audio.
This is called “video distribution” and reduces the amount of audio/video equipment located at each TV location/room.
A surround sound system creates an immersive sound experience, much like a dedicated home theater room, though in a dual-purpose room such as a Family Room, Master Bedroom, etc. If you would like more than one surround system location, click on the "Add Another Surround System" button below
Typically, homeowners want to see the following areas: front of house, front door, driveway / gate, sides of house, and pool. If you are more concerned about security, you may want to add cameras for the perimeter of your property. Good-quality cameras see about 75 feet of distance on average. The high range of the budget estimate includes higher resolution cameras, better night vision, and longer surveillance recording time.
The installation of a lighting control system reduces wall clutter, allows preset lighting scenes at the push of a button, increases security through programming automation, and adds convenience.
Motorized shades add beauty, convenience, address privacy concerns, and can be used to save energy. If desired, provide your best guess on how many windows/shades you want to motorize. The higher-end of the budget range includes higher-end fabrics, large windows, and dual-roller shades (both sheer and privacy shades on one window).
For example, a house music app, an app to operate your TV, an app for lighting automation, an app for locks, an app for cameras, an app to open close garage doors & gates, etc. Or do you want to control the entire house through a single unified app that controls all the automation systems within the home?
Make your home feel larger by balancing the light between indoor and outdoor areas.
