Being a landlord is a tough job. You have so much responsibility that the last thing you want to worry about is water waste on your property. One way you can reduce your workload and save money, time, and hassle is by upgrading to a more efficient irrigation system. Take a look below to find out why you should invest in water conservation fixtures like smart irrigation systems.
Weather can change in minutes and pipes can burst in seconds. Are you prepared to protect your property at all hours? Smart Rain is. Our products are looking out for your wallet 24/7 and practically have brains of their own. Our smart water technology works together to help your entire property adapt to the environment’s ever-changing needs — all while cutting costs and making your commercial building water usage more efficient!
The irrigation systems around your complex should operate with the best technology available in order to improve water efficiency in your buildings, which also yields cash savings. Smart Rain combines the latest features in irrigation technology, such as a smart controller, flow sensor, rain sensor, and moisture sensor to keep your water system running smoothly — and with little effort on your part.
If you’ve found that water bills are chipping away at your profits, you’re probably already looking for ways to conserve water in your industry. The only problem is that many methods of commercial water conservation can inconvenience and upset your tenants. Focusing on your irrigation system is one surefire way to cut back on your water usage without causing any disruptions to the daily routines of tenants.
One of the best things about Smart Rain is that its commercial water conservation system can be installed on any type of property, from office parks to college campuses. So no matter what kind of facility you manage, the savings and options are limitless when one of our smart water systems is watching over things!
Smart Rain uses a smart irrigation controller to completely control the entire water system on your property. The smart controller is capable of handling up to 48 zones and allows you to set watering specifications for each zone — meaning that each area will be optimally watered every time. All functionality is conveniently controlled by your smartphone.
Your smart controller has three sensors: flow, moisture, and rain. The flow sensor monitors the amount of water coming out of each valve and will alert you if the flow changes from your settings. The moisture sensor monitors evaporation and precipitation to ensure that your system is only running long enough to maintain optimal soil moisture levels. If it starts to rain before or during your watering cycle, the system automatically turns off so as not to use unnecessary water.
The long-lasting and far-reaching effects of COVID-19 are more than most of us anticipated. With hundreds of thousands of businesses shutting their doors and millions of Americans dealing with unemployment, Smart Rain has identified a way to give back to landlords and property managers like you.
If you are a landlord under financial duress, we may be able to help. We’ve been approved for a green stimulus package of $1 million to help commercial property owners and managers decrease their operating costs during the global pandemic.

Our team will come out to perform all the upgrades and get your system into money/water-saving mode so that you can proactively lessen your financial strain during the COVID-19 pandemic.
When you apply, we’ll need your commercial property name and address as well as details on your property type. We also need to know the number of controls needed for the property so we can adequately price the upgrade to your system.

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Summer hot weather is relentless, regardless of the fact that we’re all embroiled in the COVID-19 crisis. While so many businesses are being forced to cut costs any way they can, continuing to water the exterior of a commercial property is essential. A smart water management solution’s ability to efficiently nurture commercial property landscaping takes weight off a property owner’s mind amid the coronavirus pandemic. Here are the ways an automated irrigation system is invaluable in these unprecedented times.
Property owners and managers are tied up addressing pressing concerns.
There’s an impending recession. Tenants are at risk of falling on hard times and new ones must be found to fill vacancies. Premises are eerily quiet as employees work from home and practice social distancing. Needless to say, property owners and managers have a raft of pressing issues to address through the impending recession and beyond. In the meantime, Smart Rain irrigation technology quietly brings a degree of normalcy, working on site when no one else can, remotely controlled via an app. One thing is for sure — water management is one task easily checked off the list.
Does a water management system provide cost savings?
During such a crisis, companies have to make sure their decisions make financial sense. One way to cut costs is to water grounds only when it is necessary. Smart Rain’s tech-based water controllers ensure you’re not throwing money down the literal drain. Since 2012, under its ethos “Add Value” Smart Rain has saved its customers over 1 billion gallons of fresh water, $2 million on water bills, and over 100 thousand work hours. If you are looking for guaranteed ways to tighten your corporate belt amid COVID-19, clever water usage is a proven cost-saver.
Maintained spaces help protect your property value.
Eventually, markets will bounce back and business will return to normal. When that happens, those property owners who continued to use smart water management solutions during the crisis have an advantage over those who find themselves addressing the costly process of reviving dilapidated landscaping. Pristine grounds are a drawcard for prospective tenants and your smart sprinkler system provides an easy win when it comes to maintaining property value.
Amid the chaos, smart irrigation is one area you can control.
So many aspects of life and business are out of our hands at present. A smart sprinkler app is one area you can control. Via a dashboard view from your mobile device, you can take comfort from regular notifications and reporting, as well as real-time flow readings and sensor readings, and adjustments can be made remotely. Smart Rain consultants are still able to provide water audits, consumption reports, and soil analysis to make sure your irrigation system is working optimally. They’ll see that you are using water as frugally as possible, while still protecting your property value.
Spending time outside provides a much-needed escape.
We can’t visit our loved ones in person like we usually do, and so many of life’s regular activities are on hold. People are heading outdoors to escape being cooped up inside.
Smart water management means property managers can continue economically providing welcome respite for tenants. A healing environment of a green lawn, thriving flowers, and shady trees means so much to people right now.
