Video: Iro WiFi Smart Controller for Home Sprinkler Systems

Iro is a new smart controller for home sprinkler systems.  It automatically changes your watering program based on a variety of variables which include weather, soil type, plant type, shade, slope and more.

Iro can replace any traditional sprinkler controller and the Wi-Fi enabled unit will change from a dumb time based program and will proactively work to calculate an optimised watering schedule.  The system learns over time the more you use it and the makers promise a greener lawn using less water.

The first production run of Iro will be available in Spring 2014 with an introductory price of $199 for the 8 zone unit and $249 for the 16 zone.  Check out the video below…
