Central Internet Management: Users gain instant access to WeatherTRAK Central Internet Management Service minutes after installation of the controller. Dashboard views and web-based or field-based programming is synchronized in real-time to generate reports and email or SMS/Text alerts for single controllers and multi controller sites or accounts.

WeatherTRAK Wireless Flow
With WeatherTRAK WirelessFlow, property managers can now achieve the benefits of extremely accurate water use visibility, leak alerting, station-based flow management, and catastrophic mainline break management without the high cost of hardscape trenching.
Wireless Flow Sensing and Communication: WeatherTRAK WirelessFlow technology integrates with existing WeatherTRAK controllers on any site, functioning as reliably as a wired flow sensing connection. The controller transceiver and field transceiver use frequency- hopping, spread-spectrum digital radios to mimic wires, control the master valve, and communicate flow sensor signals up to 4,000 feet.
Real-time Alarms and Alerts: WeatherTRAK WirelessFlow enables real-time flow and valve monitoring with diagnostic LED displays on both the controller and the field transceivers. System status alerts include individual station high flow, mainline breaks, no flow, leak detection, valve station short, and open valve detection. Immediate, automated master valve shutoff occurs if flow exceeds the programmable high flow settings.
WeatherTRAK Mobile Applications
Downloadable applications for Smartphone, iPad or Tablet reduce multiple site visits, travel time and on-site troubleshooting or diagnostics.
Available in June, the WeatherTRAK Mobile menu features:
-Anytime, Anywhere Remote Control and Manual Irrigation
-Real-Time Alerts and Centralized Dashboard
-One-Click Customer Support
"Designed with ease of use in mind, HydroPoint products consistently save our customers time, water and money," said Spain. "24/7 remote visibility, automated site monitoring, and real-time central control applications deliver measurable value, immediate results and optimized efficiency."
