Automate Your Garden With this Nifty Water Saving Gadget

sprinkler-robotHome automation is a really big trend right now. There are devices that let you mess with your home heating system or alarm system from your smart phone across town, for example.

Now this trend is exploding into gardens and landscapes as well, thanks to this nifty water saving gadget called the Droplet Sprinkler. It’s a pre-release item that automates your ability to water your plants.

And while we don’t think you should use a robot to clean your gutters, the little garden robot is pretty cool. You attach it to your hose, use a phone or computer to input information about your plants, and let it move around your yard, deciding when, where, and how much to water.

It pulls online data from weather stations to know that it rained yesterday, which means it won’t go out and do its job when the lawn is already soaked.

This little gadget can replace your entire sprinkler system. The manufacturers also note that it can shave $200/year off of your water bill, which means that the device will be able to pay for itself in just 2 years.

As we’ve discussed, water issues are a big deal here in Florida. Sometimes it’s hard to conserve water, but this time it’s pretty easy.

We may not be able to help you preserve water or automate your home, but Rain Control Gutters can help in other ways. For example, we can install gutter guards to vastly reduce the amount of time and money spent on cleaning and maintaining your gutters. We can also clean, repair, and replace your old gutters with state of the art seamless aluminum gutters.
