AT&T Alliance Channel Adds Smart Irrigation to Portfolio


According to a recent release, AT&T Alliance Channel is adding the AT&T Smart Cities Irrigation solution to its portfolio. The system uses IoT controllers to track water flow and usage in near real-time. AT&T works with HydroPoint, a company specializing in smart water management systems such as WeatherTrak smart controllers, which use the weather to determine future and current water needs for a property. The AT&T network is tied into these solutions to allow solution providers to help customers meet water conservation goals and reduce water consumption by as much as 40 percent, according to the release.

These smart irrigation solutions can be used by businesses in retail, office parks, landscaping, golf courses, and hotels and resorts to help them be more sustainable and efficient, thus lowering costs and increasing profits.

“IoT solutions offer new functionality, reliability and capabilities that transcend traditional product limits,” said Kevin Leonard, VP, Alternate Channels, AT&T. “Advanced water management lets businesses use near real-time data to manage landscape water management. This will save them money and the planet water.”

The AT&T Smart Cities Irrigation solution is designed to take the guesswork out of traditional irrigation systems, which are usually controlled by timers or manual devices and don’t let property managers handle water issues remotely. This solutions suite can help stop overwatering, a real problem in dry areas because excess water can erode the landscape or flow off site carrying fertilizer, pesticides or animal waste into local water systems.

Businesses will also be able to use it to track water usage, identify leaks and breaks in pipes and stop water flow before damage and water waste occurs, the company said. The flow management products also can retrofit to current systems to make the changes simpler and more cost effective.

“Earth Day sheds a light on the issues associated with water conservation,” said Leonard. “We’re all becoming increasingly more sensitive and focused on the waste of the earth’s resources. IoT is helping uncover new solutions to these everyday challenges.”
