AccuWater developed the C Series intelligent irrigation controller that uses evapotranspiration (ET) algorithms to manage home irrigation systems. The system saves a homeowner time and money, while providing increased control over landscaping water use. The AccuWater system communicates over an "always on" internet connection and uses an IP based, home mounted, WeatherHawk weather station for measurement of real -time microclimate conditions. After its initial set -up, weather conditions measured at the home will automatically adjust the delivery of water to the lawn and landscaping. ET based irrigation control has been used for municipal and commercial landscaping for many years with water savings of 30 -50% as compared to older timer based systems (local conditions and owner set -up determine ultimate water savings).

The home automation industry standard WeatherHawk family of rugged weather stations is available in both directly connected and wireless versions. WeatherHawk also offers a complete range of hardware options that enable a home automation installer to easily adapt the WeatherHawk to virtually any site, data or input power requirement.

WeatherHawk is manufactured in the United States, and supported worldwide through a combination of affiliated companies and independent dealers. Please contact WeatherHawk for information on how to become a WeatherHawk Installer/Dealer.
