BASELINE RELEASES NEW WEATHER-BASED CONTROL FUNCTIONALITY

Wednesday, Mar 16, 2016

Baseline, the industry leader in intelligent irrigation control systems, has released new weather-based functionality, WeatherAccess™ for its BaseStation 1000 and BaseStation 3200 controller platforms that are connected to BaseManager. This functionality is available at no additional cost to BaseManager Plus subscribers.

Baseline has leveraged its years of experience and expertise in measuring evapotranspiration with soil moisture sensors to provide a platform that combines this intelligent watering technology with the industry's best practices for weather-based irrigation controllers into a single user interface. Now, Baseline customers have the ability to use our time-tested and proven soil moisture sensor technology alongside industry-accepted weather-based programming to achieve the best-possible irrigation results.

Baseline's WeatherAccess integrates with WeatherUnderground.com so users can select a weather station that best serves their site. The BaseManager Plus user interface allows the user to easily input all of the necessary variables in order to ensure the best possible ET calculation.

"It's not enough to just have a weather-based option," says Jon Peters, Baseline's Director of Sales. "The weather-based control has to deliver on our commitment to improve plant health, significantly reduce water use, while remaining easy and intuitive to use. We believe this new functionality does just that."

Tyson Carroll, a project manager and landscape architect for the Urban Tree Foundation based out of Visalia, CA said, "This is a game changer. Baseline already has the best product in the market, and now they're putting their money where their mouth is for their soil moisture sensors. Our customers have no reason not to consider Baseline because they can do it all."

Baseline is pursuing the EPA WaterSense® label and expects to become a WaterSense partner very soon.
