KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa., March 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- With nearly 75 percent of the 1.2 million Palm Beach County residents owning homes and the National Weather Service's prediction for "exceptionally dry" conditions in Florida this winter, water districts are considering additional mandates to dramatically reduce water usage across the state. For the one million homeowners in Palm Beach County, this creates an ongoing struggle to keep their lawns healthy, green and beautiful. That is until now. UgMO Technology's introduction of the ProHome Wireless Soil-Sensor-System is a game changer. With UgMO ProHome, residents can reduce their water consumption by as much as 60 percent. Featuring the same technology used to preserve the lush turf at the prestigious Seminole Golf Club and Miami's Sun Life Stadium, UgMO Technologies is the solution for residents and small businesses to have a healthy, green lawn while saving water and money.
Due to mandates, residents are restricted to three-day-a-week or less irrigation schedules in Palm Beach County. With the UgMO wireless soil sensor technology, the guesswork is taken out of how much water lawns and landscapes need. UgMO connects to the existing sprinkler system and wireless sensors are placed underground to measure soil moisture levels in real time, up to six times an hour, 24 hours a day. The data from the sensors is transmitted to an UgMO base station that communicates with the sprinkler clock, turning the water off when the soil is wet enough. Landscaping is never over watered, resulting in healthier lawns and plants and significant water and money savings.
"UgMO ensures that my lawn gets the exact amount of water it needs. I was constantly concerned with over-saturation and water restrictions, now I trust UgMO to monitor and irrigate my lawn the right way," said Ibis Golf and County Club homeowner, Ed Antarsh. "Before UgMO was installed, I used 41,000 gallons of water in three months to keep my lawn lush. With UgMO, I only used 4,000 gallons during the same period with the same results, that's huge savings on my water bill."
For residents calling Palm Beach home for half the year, UgMO's automatic monitoring allows snowbirds to rest assured knowing their lawn will be healthy and thriving while they are away. With a two-sensor system MSRP of $499, UgMO ProHome qualify for rebates in some water districts or municipalities. For more information, call 877-500-UgMO or visit www.UgMO.com.
