Encino, CA-based Cyber-Rain Inc.’s full line of weather-based controllers has become the first “outdoor technology” to earn the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) WaterSense label.
Cyber-Rain’s innovative “sprinkler controllers with a brain” use the Internet to check local weather conditions and automatically adjust run times for a property’s irrigation system. According to Cyber-Rain, users can save up to 40% on their water bills, and the system can often pay for itself in one to two years.
WaterSense-labeled irrigation controllers can be stand-alone controllers, add-on devices, and plug-in devices used to control watering in both residential and commercial/institutional applications. With more than 13.5 million landscape irrigation systems currently in use across the United States, upgrading these systems to include properly installed and programmed WaterSense-labeled irrigation controllers can significantly reduce water waste, provide convenience, and meet plants’ water needs while promoting healthy landscapes.
