My name is Clark Endrizzi and I’m a co-founder of Skydrop inc, inventor of the Skydrop controller.
Skydrop has been in development for over a year and recently the Skydrop team and I were excited to be able to show the world what we’ve been working on for the first time at CES 2014.
The reception and excitement around Skydrop was amazing!
For everyone who had a chance to drop by it was great to meet you. For those that weren’t at CES I’ll briefly explain what skydrop is and what it does for you.
Skydrop Saves You Water, Time, and Money
If you are like most people you don’t know how much you need to water your landscape and certainly don’t have time to keep changing how your sprinkler controller waters throughout the year. With the Skydrop controller you don’t have to.
Using your existing Wi-Fi, Skydrop connects to the Skydrop cloud service and tracks the weather as it’s happening. Processing this weather information, Skydrop knows when it needs to water and when it doesn’t. For most people, this has dramatic ramifications on how much water is used throughout the year. This can provide big savings as water becomes more expensive and more scarce.
With Skydrop you have as little or as much control as you would like. So if there are certain zones, or all zones for that matter, that you want to be watered a specific way, just create a custom schedule for them. In the end, it’s up to you.
Manage It Your Way
In addition to having complete control over how Skydrop waters, you can also manage it the way you want to. Skydrop can be managed from the controller itself using its simple jog dial interface or you can use it from a smartphone or web browser (from anywhere in the world).
To manage it remotely from a web browser or smartphone application you simply need to create a new Skydrop online account and associate your Skydrop controller with it.
Regardless of how you choose to manage your Skydrop, you will be presented with a familiar and simple to use interface.
Skydrop will be available this spring and will cost $299. You can join the waiting list today.
