Smart irrigation is based on multiple inputs: soil moisture, water flow, energy consumption, weather conditions (rain sensor) or weather forecast.
The results of using smart irrigation system is reduced water and energy consumption and much less need for human intervention. The irrigation is much more precise because the humidity sensors can measure the actual watering results at several soil depths and act in accordance with the measured data.
Connectivity: LoRaWAN, NB-IoT,
Major benefits: reduced water consumption, reduced energy consumption, less human intervention, more precise irrigation.
Sensors: soil moisture, smart valve
