OnPoint EcoSystems Gets Seasons From the Cloud

OnPoint EcoSystems; conserving money, water and time by taking the complexity out of landscape irrigation; announced today that its WaterPoint 1000TM WiFi irrigation controller now has the ability to create, store and retrieve up to six (6) fully independent irrigation schedules from the myOnPointTM Cloud service.

The new “Season” feature improves water efficiency and lowers water bills by enabling the creation of easily accessible custom irrigation schedules for different seasons of the year or growing cycles. It also makes it easy to try out alternate schedules without fear of losing your favorite schedule. Each season is independent and can have a different number of programs, water days, start times, and zone run times. Simply make the desired seasonal adjustments, assign a unique name (i.e. “Summer”, “Winter”, or “Plant Tomatoes”) then click “save” to store the new season / schedule in your myOnPointTM Cloud account. When desired, load the stored season onto the WaterPoint 1000TM by simply clicking the season name.

To further simplify seasonal changes, the WaterPoint 1000TM now supports global run time adjust. With the click of a single button on your smartphone, tablet or browser, increase or decrease the run time of all zones (valves) in a schedule or season by the same percentage.

The multiple Season and global adjust features are now available on all WaterPoint 1000TM systems. For existing WaterPoint 1000TM customers, simply respond to the feature update e-mail and these new capabilities will be automatically downloaded to the controller.
