Rain Bird releases ESP-SMT Upgrade Kit

Supplier News

The upgrades can be made all season.

| December 16, 2011

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.

In an effort to boost the switch to the Smart Control System, contractors can download a free Homeowner Marketing Kit complete with customizable sell sheet, postcard and bill stuffer to use in their sales efforts. Also, contractors who are members of Rain Bird’s Rewards Program can also earn double rewards points on every ESP-SMT Upgrade Kit that they purchase between now and Jan. 15, 2012.
