I have been to thousands of homes in my time in the irrigation business. I’ve seen wired and wireless rain sensors installed on new and old homes. I’ve also seen homes with no sensor at all. I ask homeowners that have a sensor if it’s been working for them. A lot of times they don’t know. It’s not their fault! More than likely, they forgot they had a sensor, were never told they had a sensor, or if they were told, that it ever needed maintenance.
Wouldn’t it be nice to know that your rain sensor is working and that it’s activated? Well, Sprinkl Conserve does that. Once installed and connected to your Wi-Fi network, you can control the smart rain sensor from your phone app. And it works in principle like your old style sensor, except it allows you more hands on control and uses local weather data.
The installation itself is straightforward for the do it yourselfers and the smart sensor can be installed into your existing controller! A professional licensed irrigator can also install it for you.
The old style sensors were usually installed on the gutter or fence outside. Those sensors were also susceptible to the physical elements of weather (hail), roofers, and fence repairmen. Those elements could break or move the moisture collector out of adjustment, moving it out of the way of rain and preventing it from working.
The wireless versions of the old style sensors need batteries to maintain and replace every 3-5 years. And very few homeowners remember to check those or know when the batteries are low. The wired and wireless versions both need their moisture disks looked at every few years too. Debris, spider webs, and old age can keep them from expanding properly, preventing the sensors from working properly.
Installing a rain sensor outside is the old way of doing things. Sprinkl Conserve, the smart rain sensor, is the new way! It’s installed indoors at your controller. It’s out of the weather and other physical elements, making it virtually maintenance free! It uses your controller’s power source, so it needs no batteries. It also doesn’t require a ladder to install it. So, for those that don’t like heights, you’re in luck! Here’s a link to the installation guide.
Sprinkl Conserve also integrates with local weather forecasts and uses predictive scheduling to prevent watering if it’s going to rain. Your old style sensor can’t do that!
Another great advantage to having a Sprinkl Conserve smart sensor is the support. If you’re in Frisco, TX, their support team is accessible in person. Whether online, on the phone, or in person, you will receive an amazing customer service experience.
