Signature Control Systems launched its new controllers , the 8210 and 8310 , which provide high-power, agronomic-driven irrigation control at accessible prices, the company says. The products are a response to strong residential market demand for cost- efficient intelligent irrigation control that operates with the best available technology. The Wi-Fi-based controllers leverage Signature's Share platform (currently used around the world to power intelligent irrigation control for cities, homeowner associations, golf courses and large-scale commercial entities) to deliver unrivaled irrigation precision. The controllers run off the Share mobile app, free for Apple and Android devices. The user-friendly app includes simplified intelligent irrigation programming that can be performed by contractors or homeowners, the company says, and also supplies real-time agronomic data to each controller, which then automatically adjusts watering (to 0.01 inch) based on plant needs. This precision-based approach results in water savings of up to 40 percent in residential yards while still giving plants what they need to thrive.
