Droplet Brings Innovative Sprinkler System to the U.S. with Release of its Flagship Robotic Sprinkler Product
SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Droplet
Robotics, the world's first smart sprinkler system, today announced
the availability of its flagship sprinkler system in the U.S. By
combining the latest technology in robotics, cloud computing and
connected services, Droplet transforms the way sprinkler systems
function. Unveiled globally in March, the Droplet Sprinkler System is
now available online at Amazon.com.
Droplet's unique smart sprinkler system provides an innovative way to
intelligently water plants while dramatically reducing water
consumption. Droplet leverages real-time data from more than 10,000
weather stations, millions of square miles of soil samples and
comprehensive plant biological information to make intelligent decisions
on when, where and how much water to deliver. The sprinkler system is
the perfect addition to any yard or garden, with unrivaled accuracy and
efficiency in a compact form (9"x9"x6") that only weighs six pounds.
With water rates doubling in the U.S. and many areas facing severe
drought, consumers are seeking ways to conserve water and reduce
out-of-pocket expenses. Droplet can cut overall household water use by
nearly half while reducing sprinkler system consumption up to 90
percent. In addition to substantial consumer cost savings, each
sprinkler system has the potential to save thousands of gallons of fresh
water per year.
"The Droplet Smart Sprinkler System defines an entirely new home
automation category and will redefine the lawn maintenance experience
for consumers," said Steve Fernholz, founder and CEO or Droplet
Robotics. "With 100 percent of the state of California in extreme
drought crisis, Droplet offers a simple and inexpensive way to reduce
water consumption without sacrificing your garden."
Droplet hooks directly onto any standard garden hose to effectively
water plants up to 30 feet away or entire lawns with a range of up to
approximately 2,700 square feet. Because of its superior technology,
Droplet only releases four gallons of water per minute to efficiently
distribute water without wasting resources.
Droplet is easily configured via Wi-Fi with an HTML5 experience, and
will release an iOS and Android App coming soon. You can order your
Droplet on Amazon.com today: http://www.amazon.com/Droplet-Robotics-DR01-Sprinkler/dp/B00IORFJBG/
Droplet Robotics' mission is to build smart products which help save
water in your day-to-day life. By leveraging enormous datasets on
Droplet servers, precision engineering in our devices and a practical
approach to solving problems, Droplet Robotics will make an impact in
the water usage of homeowners.
