Wireless Weather Station Irrigation Control
Preliminary Technology Assessment
What is This Technology?
This technology uses data collected from an on-site weather station to wirelessly control an automated lawn irrigation system, eliminating the need for facility operators to make regular scheduling adjustments because the “smart” controller adjusts the schedule automatically as weather changes.
Why is GSA Interested?
Unlike traditional irrigation strategies, this system accounts for day-to-day, site-specific changes in weather conditions, vegetation-specific irrigation needs, and microclimate conditions. This technology promises to significantly reduce irrigation water use.
