How to add Automation to your Garden

If you want to save yourself work, what better way to do it than with the help of technology?

We live in a time where the number of tasks that we have to perform during the day, whether at work, at home in the garden, or in our free time, can be limited thanks to the use of technology. It is evident that leaving certain aspects of our days to machines is not the ideal situation, much less if you want to treat certain activities with care and dedication, but sometimes there is no other option. If you give me five minutes of your time, and you are interested in improving your garden with little effort, I will show you three types of irrigation controllers.

We start with one of the basic items for all those people who are looking for a way to maintain a green and well-cared lawn, without having to spend many hours a week watering it. This article includes a programmer, with a cover included to avoid damage due to inclement weather, with an outlet, valid for 3/4 “taps. Its operation does not require any type of cable, since it uses two 1.5V AA batteries, which are not included. In addition, this controller has an LED light to indicate the low level of the batteries, with the possibility of establishing a frequency of irrigation between one hour and one week, with irrigation duration between 5 minutes and 120 minutes.

This irrigation controller is simple and effective. It comes with a thread of options with which to choose the watering time, the frequency, or the start time. Set up a digital screen where you can see the date and time, and duration of irrigation. It is waterproof, so do not worry if you have to put it outside. It works thanks to 2 AAA batteries of 1.5V that are capable of giving you use for about 9 months without a problem.

If you are looking for a more advanced product, you may be interested in this irrigation automation, which has an outlet, to be able to control an area of your garden. You can configure its use in frequencies from 1 to 72 hours, with a maximum of one week, and water from one minute to two hours. It has variable pressure control from 1 bar to 8 bar, works with two AA batteries, and uses the Delay function to delay the start of irrigation for up to 12 hours.

When I told you that technology would help you with your garden, I was referring, above all, to this type of article, which already seems closer to the devices we know today. Thanks to its digital display, we can control the duration of irrigation, from one second to 300 minutes, the frequency, from one hour to 15 days, and even a manual mode. The tap has a 3/4 “thread, the system can withstand a water pressure ranging between 8 kilograms and 10 kilograms and uses AA batteries, which will allow you to worry about the battery up to six months later.
