SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 10/11/13 -- Janet Moyer Landscaping (JML), a full-service landscaping company in San Francisco devoted to addressing the unique challenges of urban gardens, announced today its partnership with Toro to make a complimentary one-time upgrade for JML's current users of the Intelli-Sense WeatherTrak® enabled controller to Toro's latest "SMART" controller technology. The new system eliminates the need for a remote download, yearly subscription fees, and interruptions of service due to inconsistent data communication.
The new system, called Irritrol® Climate Logic® (Irritrol is a brand of The Toro Company), works by combining real time data from a compact, wireless weather sensor installed on site with 40 years of historic weather data that is zip code specific and loaded into a new control unit. It also has the benefit of providing immediate feedback to the controller when a rain event occurs, or temperatures drop close to freezing.
"We are grateful that Toro has partnered with us to provide the new controller to current JML users," says Michael Hofman, JML executive vice president and Certified Irrigation Designer.
He explains, "The previous system became problematic for a number of reasons. It required the use of one-way pager technology, a system that is being reduced to only the centers of major metropolitan areas. This means that some neighborhoods would get inconsistent service, so we were happy to work with Toro to come up with a viable solution to this problem for our clients."
Mike Baron, national specifications manager for Toro, added, "Toro values its business relationships with landscape contractors, especially those who have consistently installed Toro irrigation products over the years. Because of our mutual trust, commitment to the relationship and our joint focus on the end customer, we worked together to address the situation in a manner that was acceptable to both our companies and real a plus for the homeowners."
