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.
