Third generation intelligent irrigation system

Smart home gadgets have long been available not only for furnishing your own four walls. Garden lovers can also simplify their care with the help of practical helpers. A good example is the smart irrigation controller Eve Aqua. The gadget for the water connection in the garden is now in its third generation and offers a lot of new things.

Water your garden automatically with Eve Aqua

The irrigation system is said to have been significantly improved in the third generation. In addition to a more robust design, which should ensure more resilience, the manufacturer also promises a higher quality design. The new design should not only look more elegant, but also ensure quieter operation in combination with revised features. But what can Eve Aqua actually do? As a smart home gadget, you can integrate the irrigation system into your own network. Once set up, you can easily water your garden from your iPhone. You can use the app or Siri to do this. Alternatively, there is a button on the Eve Aqua itself that you can use to start watering.

Of course, the biggest advantage of the irrigation system is that your garden is watered despite your absence. Especially if you are on vacation for several weeks, Eve Aqua will certainly prove to be an extremely practical gadget. You can set up a schedule in the app so your plants are always watered. Thanks to an integrated timer, Eve Aqua works according to a schedule even without an internet connection. That means you can turn off your other electronic devices, including your WiFi router, when you’re not around. To save money and protect the environment, the app also gives you the option to view your water consumption.

Compared to its predecessor, the third-generation irrigation system looks much more elegant. This is mainly due to the new front, which now comes in matt black. However, not only the design but also the inner workings should have changed. You will now find a new solenoid valve that is said to have many benefits.

The manufacturer not only promises that it should be more durable. On top of that, you shouldn’t have to worry about leaks and probably benefit from a quieter mechanism. The multi-compatible irrigation system is equipped with a metal thread that should correspond to the connections of common manufacturers.

Nothing works here without iOS

If you are thinking about buying Eve Aqua, you should be aware that nothing works without Apple HomeKit. Consequently, you need an iOS device such as an iPhone or iPad for both setup and operation.

However, since Eve Aqua also has “thread”, a firmware update should ensure more compatibility soon. The irrigation system should offer the “Matter” standard and thus be controllable via Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa, for example.

You can now buy Eve Aqua for an RRP of €149.95 on the manufacturer’s official website or on Amazon. If you want to make your home even smarter, you might be interested in the curtain robot SwitchBot Curtain Rod 2 (test) or the Aqara Camera Hub G3 (test).
