    Keeping your lawn properly irrigated to ensure your grass and plants can grow healthy isn’t always easy, especially if you’re utilizing a traditional irrigation system, which are known to have quite a few downsides. Firstly, traditional irrigation systems require to be configured to turn on and off by manually pre-setting a timer. Therefore, if heavy rain unexpectedly occurs on a scheduled day, or if the soil deep beneath the ground surface is already oversaturated, then the water that’s used to irrigate your lawn is essentially wasted. Obviously, this isn’t the most efficient or cost-effective way to irrigate your lawn. In fact, recent studies have show that 70% of global water consumption is used for irrigation, from which approximately half of that is wasted due to inefficient traditional irrigation practices. Additionally, manually operating a standard irrigation system under the hot sun during hot Summer days is also very exhausting. Unlike traditional irrigation systems that require to be manually operated, smart irrigation systems such as smart sprinkler controllers allow homeowners to irrigate their front lawns and backyards with optimal efficiency, and consequently, to conserve water during times when irrigating their lawn isn’t necessary. So, if you’re looking for a system that allows you to irrigate your lawn or yard with optimal efficiency, then the ImoLaza Smart Wi-Fi Sprinkler Controller is your answer.

    Via the Imolaza App, homeowners can create customized watering schedules for the ImoLaza Smart Wi-Fi Sprinkler Controller, for which those watering schedules will be based on important provided metrics that directly relate to the specific needs of their lawn, including the plant types, the soil type, the average amount of time that you’re plants are exposed to sunlight, the type of sprinkler system you have (such as defining if it’s a sprinkler system equipped with nozzles), amongst other provided criteria.

    Users can create customized watering schedules with specific time-frames for up to 16 individually controlled zones (this will depend if they went with the 4 Zone, 8 Zone, 12 Zone, or 16 Zone product model).

    In addition, the system’s smart weather monitoring technologies take into account the weather data of local weather forecasts in real-time to further automate its gardening capabilities. Thanks to that, if harsh weather conditions such as rain showers (but also windy days and low temperatures) are detected within the current forecast, the device will automatically reduce the water that your lawn and/or garden receive from your home’s sprinkler system(s) to compensate for natural rainfall and avoid unnecessary watering in the form of rain skip, wind skip, freeze skip, and saturation skip.

    This further ensures that your grass and plants in each zone are receiving the correct amount of water, even when they are exposed to natural sources of water, which basically saves you up to 60% more water than when using a traditional irrigation system, and consequently, also saves you quite a bit of money in your water bill.

    Furthermore, the Imolaza App also allows users to view an accurate estimate of the system’s overall water usage.

    Lastly, the Imolaza App also includes a Smart Cycle function that can be enabled to save even more water. Enabling this functionality forces the system to divide its entire watering process into several small processes, which gives more time for the soil from your lawn or backyard to fully absorb the water, thus preventing overwatering, while also helping to deepen your plants’ root systems, allowing them to grow healthier and stronger.
