Remote real time management of commercial and sports turf irrigation systems has become a practical reality with Rain Bird’s latest IQ-Cloud solution. An installation can now be managed remotely by a computer connected to the internet using a web enabled desktop computer or a tablet and smartphone when mobile. IQ-Cloud ensures significant savings in water consumption thanks to its ability to schedule automatically irrigation programs based on internet based weather information as well as idata from a weather station.
IQ-Cloud can be used to manage commercial landscapes, parks, hotels, leisure complexes, sports stadia or other amenities and has multi-user capability. Used in conjunction with Rain Bird ESP-LX series controllers, the addition of a communication cartridge enables employment of IQ-Cloud’s full suite of remote water management tools over the internet.
Users know in real time which zones and irrigation systems are operating and can access information on flow rates and performance. IQ-Cloud can automatically create and share reports, saving time and providing information on irrigation times, total water usage and other significant data. Automated e-mail alerts and alarms can be set up to help manage potential problems and new irrigation zones, sites or systems can be easily added.
