Automate the irrigation of your garden: Key to home automation in your home
The concept of 'smart home' is not limited to the space between the four walls (or whatever) of the home, but also encompasses outdoor environments. In this way, garden home automation is an area that offers many automation possibilities that will result in comfort and even the optimization of resources .
Within this field, which ranges from infrared sensors for lighting to intelligent security elements, the automation of garden irrigation stands out, an option that offers multiple advantages such as less water consumption, regulation in the event of inclement weather and, of course, the comfort of controlling and programming everything from the palm of your hand.
How to automate the irrigation of my garden?
To install automatic irrigation in the garden you will need four elements : an irrigation system, a smart programmer, a plug with 'hub' control and an application to manage the different possibilities from your mobile phone. To have the system operational, you will only need to carry out a few steps that we now detail:

It could be said that this is the 'analog' or structural step, that is, the one that makes up any irrigation system, whether it is intelligent or not .
2. Get a smart programmer to automate your garden irrigation
Once we have an irrigation system, it will be time to make it 'smart'. The intelligent irrigation programmer will be the element that turns the entire previous installation into an automatable and remotely controllable garden .
3. Pair the plug and smart irrigation controller with your smartphone
The next step will be to activate the socket with 'hub' control and link it with the irrigation programmer via mobile phone. Basically, this element will allow you to generate the network to operate from the smartphone in the garden.
4. Install the smart controller on the water outlet
Finally, you must install the smart programmer in the garden water outlet . Thanks to the wireless network in which this device, the plug and the smartphone participate, you will now be able to control irrigation with total comfort.
