PETALUMA, Calif., Nov. 4, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HydroPoint Data Systems, Inc., the proven leader in Smart Water Management Solutions, today announced that WeatherTRAK FlowLink will be featured in the 2013 Irrigation Show New Product Contest and HydroPoint trade show booth #2029 during the annual Irrigation Association education conference in Austin, Texas, November 4-8, 2013.
Delivering reliable, real-time visibility and user-friendly, advanced diagnostics, WeatherTRAK Flow Link brings the benefits of flow monitoring to existing sites. Irrigation and landscape professionals can now quickly discover and address system leaks and mainline breaks, reducing outdoor water waste and property risks associated with water damage.
"WeatherTRAK FlowLink delivers failsafe, real-time communication, eliminating costly hardscape trenching and site disruptions. The result is a flow monitoring solution that is effective and simple to deploy," said Chris Spain, CEO and President at HydroPoint. "Installing in 30 minutes or less, the FlowLink product combines with WeatherTRAK Central enhancements to create dynamic flow management. Landscape professionals gain 24/7 visibility into leaks and breaks, eliminating water-related damage and repair costs across a single site or property portfolio."
WeatherTRAK FlowLink and WeatherTRAK Central Flow Management:
WeatherTRAK FlowLink uses existing field wires and minimal trenching to pair a field transceiver and controller transceiver with flow sensors and a WeatherTRAK commercial smart irrigation controller. This solution leverages the robust 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 in real-time.
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 not easily visible from the surface 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 or make remote station-level changes to controller flow settings and configurations via any internet-enabled computer, Smartphone or tablets. Automated shut-off of broken sprinkler heads, leaks and mainline breaks immediately eliminates water waste and damage. Customizable user-defined alarms, alert notifications or station groupings, interactive dashboards and water budget reports increase response time and operations efficiency.
