Save water, predict the weather, stop fires with @ETWater's controlled system

Save water, predict the weather, stop fires with @ETWater's controlled system

How does it work? ETwater's smart sprinkler uses both local sensors to monitor temperature, soil type, and slope along with real-time weather stats to determine how much water your lawn and plants actually need. For example, if it's raining the system will deliver less water to your plants during the week. It can also monitor your landscape by adjusting water distribution for different soil and plant types. The system continues to learn about the user's lawn data the longer it's in use in order to make smarter predictions about the amount of water your plants need. Sounds better than spending ten minutes adjusting your standard sprinkler to make sure it gets most of your lawn.
