The partnership will help localize weather information for the irrigation manufacturer.
ENCINO, Calif. – Cyber-Rain, makers of web-based, central irrigation systems, announced a partnership with Weather Underground, providers of weather information.
Weather Underground has developed a network of personal weather stations, with 16,000 in the US and more than 8,000 internationally, that provides localized weather conditions. The company’s forecasting technology, BestForecast, publishes the recent accuracy of its forecasts for each location.
“As the reliability of real-time weather data is the primary factor in efficient operation of our products, we can now claim the best irrigation systems in the industry,” said James Krug, Cyber Rain’s CEO. “We look forward to working with Weather Underground to promote increased use of money-saving, water conservation behavior.”
“It’s a natural partnership,” added Alan Steremberg, president of Weather Underground. “Cyber Rain can make the most practical use of our data and allow everyone in our network to feel they are contributing to the rapidly growing water conservation effort.”
