URC and Rachio, the smart-yard technology brand, have introduced a next-generation integration in smart watering for residential and commercial users. Now users integrate Rachio’s Smart Watering systems seamlessly with URC’s Total Control platform.
As the smart-yard leader, Rachio seeks out the best, smartest, and most innovative new yard and garden products on the market, then curates these hard-to-find brands into one simple shopping experience. Every product Rachio partners with is designed to bring the smart home outdoors, enriching the outdoor lifestyle, and promoting sustainability and water conservation.
Combining these systems creates a unified, smart commercial and residential control for URC dealers and their customers. Rachio smart watering devices now operate within the Total Control system for easy and secure control and automation. Users can form multiple zones or devices, and Total Control’s user experience allows easy adjustment including water management and usage. Within a secure environment, this integration allows dealers remote access (with end user approval) to trouble-shoot, monitor, or adjust. Integrated water sensing allows for precise measurement of water consumption and enables sustainability and cost saving.
With professional installation, Total Control allows this new integration to combine with customized scenes where multiple exterior activities occur like watering, lighting, and surveillance . Easy and convenient for the end customer, this integration appears across URC user interfaces, like touch screens and remotes.
“This next generation, smart watering integration delivers efficiency and resiliency while ensuring that our dealers can easily install reliable, secure smart systems with premium, unified performance,” stated Lars Granoe, URC’s VP of product development.
