GreenIQ's smart sprinklers don't do it alone
GreenIQ wants to control your smart garden and it's bringing friends to help.
You basically take your existing irrigation controller and you swap it out for this guy.
Then, it's gonna monitor the local weather and change how your sprinklers are scheduled so that you're not watering when it's raining.
And so that your plants get a drink when they need it the most.
It links to PlantLink, Flower Power, Koubachi.
It takes the information, such as soil moisture, from those.
And makes a more educated decision about when your sprinklers need to run.
GreenIQ also sets itself apart because it has 3G.
It's also equipped with Wi-Fi, so if your sprinkler controller is within range of your router, fine, you're done.
And if not, you can use its cellular signal to connect to it anywhere, or even if your Wi-Fi goes down.
So GreenIQ does a good job of using all available information to help make your sprinklers as smart as they can be, and we're looking forward to testing it at CNet Smarts.
