Smart Rain makes acquisition

The water management company acquired the Weather Reach and Irrisoft brands from Campbell Scientific.

SALT LAKE CITY – Smart Rain acquired the Irrisoft and Weather Reach brands from Campbell Scientific. Smart Rain has purchased all assets as well as assuming all customer support and services.

Irrisoft is a smart landscape irrigation control business that started in 2001.

The company made the Rain Bird ET Manager, which was private labeled for Rain Bird and sold by Rain Bird for almost a decade. Irrisoft took what they learned and further advanced their product with the Weather Reach Controller Link.

“I am impressed with the simplicity and reliability of the Smart Rain system and look forward to the integration of Weather Reach technology to further improve efficient water use and sustain beautiful landscapes,” Steven Moore said.

Dan Hymas, president of Smart Rain said, “We have watched and loved what Irrisoft has done over the years. It was naturally a perfect fit to take all they have built and integrate into our software and smart watering system. We believe both Irrisoft and Smart Rain customers will love even more what is yet to come from Smart Rain”

Larry Shirk, vice president of Campbell Scientific said, “This is naturally a great fit for Campbell Scientific as well. We have enjoyed working with Smart Rain and look forward to a long-standing relationship for years to come”

The acquisition was announced in February.
