Monitor Moisture Levels and Adjust Irrigation

Monitor Moisture Levels and Adjust Irrigation

Reduce water usage and improve playability without risking turf quality. Promote root growth by avoiding over watering. Detect dry areas before it impacts the turf's health.

Track Salt Build-up And Schedule Flushing

Track Salt Build-up And Schedule Flushing

Take the guesswork out of monitoring and managing salinity levels. Get positive confirmation that your flushing reduced soil salts. Know when and how much water to flush with.

Monitor Daily Soil Temperatures

Monitor Daily Soil Temperatures

Predict peak soil temperatures early in the day to start remediation activities before an emergency. Schedule fungicide applications and pesticides for optimal effectiveness. Understand evaporation rates and syringing needs.

Wireless Network

Wireless Network

No wires between the repeaters and the sensors, or the sensor and the probes means that sensors can be installed anywhere on your turf without disrupting play. Install sensors in other areas without having to trench or pull wires.

Holes are immediately ready for play after installation
