Irrigation Sensors

Irrigation Sensors

Irrigation sensors are vitally important for reducing water wastage in any automated irrigation system. Especially in today's climate, it is important that we don't waste water in our garden and anywhere for that matter. There's nothing worse than neighbours or passers by seeing your lawns and gardens being watered by sprinklers when it's raining, it looks bad and it means water is being wasted. Rain sensors are the answer, simply wire them up to your irrigation controller and place the sensor on your roof guttering or a fence and your garden will only be irrigated when it needs it.
