HydroPoint Introduces Real-Time Flow Visibility and Monitoring Tools For Irrigation Professionals

Smart Water Management Solutions Leader Debuts WeatherTRAK FlowLink and Web-Based WeatherTRAK Central Enhancements To Expand Flow Reporting, Diagnostics and Remote Flow Management


PETALUMA, Calif., July 9, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HydroPoint Data Systems, Inc., the proven leader in Smart Water Management Solutions, today announced expanded flow capabilities with the introduction of WeatherTRAK FlowLink and new flow management features available at WeatherTRAK Central, the company's web-based centralized irrigation control platform.

Delivering reliable, real-time visibility and user-friendly, advanced diagnostics, WeatherTRAK enables irrigation and landscape professionals to monitor and respond rapidly from the field, office or mobile device. The new tools quickly address system leaks and mainline breaks to reduce property risks and costs associated with water damage.

"Failsafe, real-time communication eliminates costly hardscape trenching and site disruptions to introduce a flow monitoring solution that is effective and easy to deploy," said Chris Spain, CEO and President at HydroPoint. "The FlowLink product and WeatherTRAK Central enhancements create dynamic flow management tools, giving landscape professionals 24/7 visibility into leaks and breaks for quick response to minimize damage."

WeatherTRAK FlowLink and WeatherTRAK Central Flow Management:

WeatherTRAK FlowLink brings the power of flow visibility to existing sites without the extensive hardscape trenching that can be costly, damage landscape and property, or disrupt business. WeatherTRAK FlowLink uses existing field wires and minimal trenching to pair a field transceiver and controller transceiver with flow sensors and a WeatherTRAK ET Pro commercial smart irrigation controller. This solution leverages the full flow management capabilities built into the controller and WeatherTRAK Central to monitor five independent flow functions along with master valves, station level flow rates, thresholds and run times.

Real-Time Leak Detection and Alerts:

WeatherTRAK Central's built-in analytics, reporting and alerts deliver real-time site visibility so landscape, irrigation and property management professionals can identify potential leaks or mainline breaks before catastrophic, costly problems arise.

Advanced Flow Diagnostics and Reporting:

WeatherTRAK Central diagnostics integrate with mobile, cloud-based reporting across multiple sites and controllers to assist irrigation and landscape professionals in pinpointing and resolving flow issues quickly.

Remote, Mobile Control:

WeatherTRAK Central users can immediately address high flow rates, shut off broken sprinkler heads and make remote changes to station-level controller flow settings and configurations via any internet-enabled computer, Smartphone or tablet. Interactive dashboards and customized user-defined alarms, alert notifications or station groupings increase efficiency and ease of use.
