Skydrop is a smart controller that connects directly to your lawn sprinkler system using WiFi. It can measure the soil conditions of your yard like humidity, temperature, wind, solar radiation and slope along with hyper-local weather data to help create a watering schedule that will conserve both water and money by preventing over watering. Skydrop works with most existing sprinkler systems so that all you need to replace is the controller, which can be done easily in about 10 minutes. Once installed you can manage your skydrop controller using the controller itself which can be mounted on a wall, or your computer, tablet or smartphone. The skydrop Sprinkler Controller is priced at $299.00 and is available from www.skydrop.com.
