Previously, the church and preschool relied on two separate, older controllers to manage their irrigation which made it difficult to monitor changes. The system lacked any weather-based control capabilities and did not have any rain shutoff device to prevent irrigation in the rain.

The new system features a single Rain Bird ESP-LXMEF modular controller including an SM12 expansion module to increase capacity up to 20 stations to allow for future system growth.  Per local codes for a project of this size, a new FS100B brass flow sensor and PESB master valve were added to monitor flow and take advantage of the new controller's FlowSmart capabilities.  A WR2 wireless rain sensor was added to prevent irrigation during rain events, and Rain Bird IQ-Cloud v. 3.0 was installed to enable remote management and monitoring from any desktop, tablet or mobile phone.  IQ also brings weather-based adjustment to maximize water savings based on changes in the weather..
