- Data Analytics and Visibility
Lots of sites still employ their monthly bill to get most of their water data, none of which is made clear beyond basic usage. If you begin to manage water across many sites or properties, this problem worsens since you’re getting different bills from different agencies. Water bills are never an effective way to track usage. When they arrive, the information is far too late. But if you use the same technology to evaluate and standardize on the same water data at every site, and consolidate it across your full portfolio, you have the raw data on a day-by-day basis for proper budget management, compliance management, and operational visibility.
- Leak Visibility
Water leaks are just an issue of when, not if. Leaks can simply go unnoticed and become part of your regular operating expenses when it comes to irrigation or building management. Even if they started long before the system was installed, a leak detection solution monitors your usage in real-time and detects leaks.
- Remote Management
Rising labor fees and staff consolidation aims fewer people are often controlling more properties or sites. If those locations are geographically delivered, and request compliance with different water agency requirements, the complexity magnifies. The ability to view and control multiple, geographically distributed properties from one site has shifted from a “nice to have” to a critical feature, especially for properties with minimal staff.
- Cloud-based Control
Irrigation systems capable of sending data to, and receiving information from, the cloud can adjust watering schedules relied on recent and future weather conditions and manage very big irrigation systems without requiring complex local infrastructure. By holding your data in the
