Tri Cascade, an Internet of Things (IoT) technology company, has announced a new strategic partnership with Skydrop, a smart sprinkler controllers and technology provider.
With this partnership, Tri Cascade will utilize its NB-IoT technology to enhance Skydrop’s current smart irrigation system and integrate it into Tri Cascade’s suite of IoT smart neighborhood technology.
Skydrop’s energy efficient, water conservation technology is an important addition for Tri Cascade as the company works with homebuilders to develop tomorrow’s smart neighborhoods and cities.
“Skydrop is excited to partner with Tri Cascade in implementing smart water management products as part of their platform to build smart houses and cities,” said Brandon Kennedy, CEO of Skydrop.
“Water management is a critical piece of a truly smart and resource efficient home, with water rates climbing and new restrictions being passed our Skydrop product will help homeowners monitor and remotely manage their outdoor water use, save water, and save money. Tri Cascade has a unique and disruptive platform that will bring all smart devices together, with voice control, delivering an easy install for the builder and an all-in-one platform for the homeowner.”
Tri Cascade has developed a full suite of smart neighborhood technology designed for integration during home construction to deliver a truly smart home experience for the homebuyer through advanced IoT and NB-IoT products. With the integration of Skydrop’s smart sprinkler technology and Skydrop ARC product, Tri Cascade can now extend the company’s integrated technology to the landscaping for smart homes, neighborhoods and cities.
“The vision and technology behind Skydrop’s smart home sprinkler technology closely aligns with Tri Cascade’s vision for the smart neighborhood,” said Max Li, president and CEO of Tri Cascade. “Tri Cascade is dedicated to providing energy efficient, voice-activated, built-in smart home solutions that make the homeowner’s life easier and that’s exactly what Skydrop’s smart watering technology does. With the integration of Skydrop’s solution and technology with Tri Cascade’s existing IoT smart technology Tri Cascade is well-positioned as the best and only option for homebuilders looking to deliver the built-in smart neighborhood technology homebuyers are looking for.”
Skydrop’s smart sprinkler controllers are built with adaptive algorithms integrated to generate custom and dynamic watering schedules from weather data and automatically determine the optimal watering schedule for each one of a homeowner’s lawn zones. Skydrop’s technology adjusts watering cycles, duration and frequency based on a precise calculation of the moisture in a home’s soil. The system knows how much water a landscape is losing—and when it’s losing it.
