What We Do
SMART GARDEN IRRIGATION
Amica will design, install and provide maintenance servicing for your smart irrigation and watering systems.
We’ve taken our many years of experience within the building, construction, automation, design, and landscaping industries and applied it to offer a unique solution to irrigation. Like other home technology solutions we offer, smart irrigation can be modular and grow in scope with time.
Smart irrigation includes rainwater harvesting, filtration, ground moisture monitoring, local weather, and forecast monitoring to intelligent zoned irrigation systems that learn and adapt. Your plants, grass, gardens, courtyards, or even whole fields will never be under-watered or over-watered again!
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Traditional irrigation and watering systems work manually, which means a lot of pre-planning, or with simple time clocks linked to the watering pipes. A truly smart system will monitor all aspects of the current local weather and forecast what is due to happen over the next week.
This is achieved with a small weather station that constantly monitors wind speed & direction, rain, humidity, temperature, light level, dew point, etc. The intelligent irrigation and watering system will know when to come on in each zone and when to sleep.
- If there were a lot of rain for two days, the controller would hold back on any watering for 72 hours.
- If there was a week-long heatwave, the system could add 30 minutes of watering each day.
- If rain were due tomorrow afternoon, the controller would hold the watering schedule for 24 hours and continue to monitor for precipitation.
