PETALUMA, Calif., Nov. 1, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HydroPoint Data Systems, Inc., the proven leader in Smart Water Management Solutions, today announced the formal 7.4 release of WeatherTRAK.net Central Internet Management, expanding Flow on the Web functionality and other key enhancements. With this release, the WeatherTRAK.net platform for WeatherTRAK two-way Smart Irrigation Controllers enhances cloud-based Flow Management tools to monitor station specific flow settings, flow thresholds and landscape water depletion.

With real-time visibility into flow and WeatherTRAK.net's built-in analytics, landscape professionals, irrigation experts and property managers can now easily pinpoint and immediately address station high flow rates and mainline breaks or leaks due to broken spray heads, avoiding water waste and potential damage to properties or buildings.

The Flow on the Web function in WeatherTRAK.net has additional key features to increase the efficiency of irrigation operations:

  • Real-time snapshot view of current operating stations and system flow rate for each controller across account or portfolio.
  • Remote access and ability to change flow configurations.
  • Customizable settings for station flow thresholds and mainline break thresholds.
  • Centralized control to adjust depletion settings and water requirements.
  • Tracking reports for active and historical flow-based alarms to quickly identify trends.
  • Integrated flow alarm notifications to users via email, text or SMS.

To further facilitate rapid response from the field, the WeatherTRAK.net platform now includes the WeatherTRAK Mobile application, providing mobile control and visibility to multiple WeatherTRAK controllers at the site, account or portfolio level from the account user's iPhones, iPads and Android-based smartphones or tablets.

Green industry professionals can demo the new Flow on the Web features at HydroPoint Booth #1427 during the Irrigation Association's annual show and educational conference, November 2 - 6, 2012 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.
