One of the frustrating things of home ownership is trying to run out to the yard in super hot weather and try to position the stupid sprinkler that looks like a tractor to run over the dead parts of your lawn. If you happen to be one of the lucky few that was able to move into a house with an automated sprinkler system or have one put in, you might run into the problem of having a system that offers very little in modifications.
Lono is trying to fix that problem by creating a smart sprinkler system that integrates with smart phones. It can be really tough when you are out in the backyard and trying to find and locate a broken sprinkler head. With Lono you’re able to use your smart phone to turn on different zones in the yard by only having to pick up your smartphone and open up an app. There can also be those frustrating times when you are expecting to have people over and play some yard games outback and the sprinklers suddenly turn on which ruins the fun for the entire night. Lono will allow a snooze option so those times won’t happen which can be pretty nice in a pinch. If you notice that there are some brown spots in the yard, you can also adjust different zones just slightly to where they will spend a little extra time and give that dead part of your lawn some TLC. There are also seasonal adjustments that should allow homeowners to save some money by adjusting the water output of the sprinklers. That way you don’t forget and accidentally keep your summer schedule of watering going through the fall (and avoid a $300 water bill). If the power goes out, Lono will actually save your settings to the smart phone so after a simple sync, you will have everything back to the regular settings. A lot of the standard sprinkler system controllers won’t have benefits like that. Get smart and check out Lono. Click here for image source and where to buy.
