The ESP-SMT Smart Control System uses weather-based technology along with factors such as soil type, slope, plant type and sun exposure to calculate a watering schedule for each zone within a residential or light commercial landscape. Adolfo Meza, Rain Bird’s product manager said that the Upgrade Kit makes it simple for contractors to offer their customers the advantages of smart control.
“The ESP-Modular Controller and the ESP-SMT Smart Control System have identical dimensions and wiring,” Meza says. “Contractors simply need to replace the ESP-Modular’s front panel with the ESP-SMT panel from the Upgrade Kit, make the necessary connections and then enter data using the on-screen set-up wizard and install on-site weather sensor. It’s that easy. After that, the controller will take over, applying just the right amount of water throughout the landscape.”
Upgrades can be made all season, helping to allow contractors to maintain a revenue stream during the slower months.
