OnPoint EcoSystems irrigation controller uses WiFi

By and |  July 31, 2013

OnPoint EcoSystems has introduced the WaterPoint 1000 series of irrigation controllers that connect to a WiFi router for access from anywhere—home or office—using a smart phone, tablet or computer.

The device operates from 0 to 140 degrees Fahrenheit, has built-in valve diagnostic testing, provides automatic alerts, and features a single interface for smart phones, tablets and computers. There are no monthly communication fees.

The company says its objective is to help sustain our natural resources by making it easier to control them. The WaterPoint 1000 solution has an extremely low power design, no battery or fuses to replace or dispose of, and requires no special equipment unlike many existing irrigation controllers, which require special remotes, additional wireless radios, or cellular modems that all consume more power and use more material that eventually end up as landfill, according to OnPoint EcoSystems.

In addition, the company says it is committed to not only designing its solutions in the U.S., but manufacturing them here as well.
