Rain Bird® SMRT-Y Soil Moisture Sensor Kit
The SMRT-Y Soil Moisture Sensor Kit is an easy to install add-on to any standard irrigation system that directly links your irrigation controller to your landscapes moisture requirements. Program the controller to water every day that irrigation is allowed, and the soil moisture sensor will do the rest.
As the SMRT-Y optimizes moisture at the root zone, you will enjoy a lush, healthier landscape that is less prone to fungus and shallow root growth. By eliminating overwatering the SMRT-Y saves water, typically over 40%, paying for itself in less than a year. The sensor’s industry leading accuracy and durability addresses the environmental demands of both residential and commercial applications. The SMRT-Y connects to an existing zone wire and never needs calibration or batteries. Simply connect, bury and forget.
Makes most any irrigation controller “smart”*
Simple to use, yet highly sophisticated in delivering water savings, the SMRT-Y Soil Moisture Sensor represents a new class of smart control technology. This affordable device precisely monitors moisture levels in absolute – rather than relative – terms, unaffected by soil temperature or electrical conductivity that limit the accuracy of other sensors.
Relaying that information back to the controller, it only allows a watering cycle when the root zone moisture drops below the set threshold. Based on the same Digital TDT sensing technology developed for agricultural applications, the SMRT-Y soil moisture sensor’s long-lasting dependability addresses the environmental demands of both residential and commercial applications. * Not compatible with 2-wire controllers
Water savings of 40% or more
By optimizing the amount of moisture at the root zone, the SMRT-Y conserves enough water in many applications to pay for itself in less than a year. Avoiding the tendency to overwater, you will enjoy a healthier, lush landscape that is less prone to fungus and shallow root growth.
The device eliminates needless watering and lets the soil say when watering is appropriate. Adding a soil moisture sensor allows you to meet many toughening water conservation guidelines that call for “smart” watering devices.
Advanced soil moisture sensing technology
Checking soil conditions every 10 minutes, the SMRT-Y displays moisture content, electrical conductivity and temperature of the soil, all at the touch of a button. The device also provides watering history for the last 7 irrigation cycles.
With soil moisture sensing, you no longer need to be concerned with adjusting the controller. Just program the controller once to water every day that irrigation is allowed – the soil moisture sensor will do the rest.
