Let’s look at Banyan Water’s software platform and cutting-edge features!

Banyan Water’s software platform has three main features: Irrigation Insight, Indoor Insight, and Cooling Insight. These features help customers monitor, control, and optimize their water systems for irrigation, indoor plumbing, and cooling towers.

Here are some of the specific features of each module:

Irrigation Insight 

Banyan monitors water usage in a very precise way… and quickly identifies sources of wasted water. Through their “smart irrigation controllers,” over-watered landscapes (and under-watered landscapes) will be a thing of the past. Banyan also empowers clients with a customizable smart irrigation dashboard that features real-time data of water cost performance. It also comes with advanced leak detection technology that alerts you when an issue is detected.

Indoor Insight 

With Indoor Insight, companies can take control of their indoor water use through real-time portfolio insights or full enterprise. This feature enables customers to track water use throughout their buildings, mitigate risk, and increase net operating income. It comes with real-time alert center that oversees water waste events. Lastly, Banyan Water has the most advanced analytics at your disposal with automatic email reports.

Cooling Insight 

Banyan has an innovative solution for commercial real estate, offering an automated cooling tower operating system that dramatically reduces water usage by 60-80%. This feature helps customers remotely view and control their cooling towers to increase operations efficiency and water cost savings for commercial real estate. The system includes automatic monitoring and management of concentration cycles, convenient access to data for evaporative credits, and accurate performance metrics.

Are you curious how Banyan Water’s irrigation system uses real-time weather data, soil moisture, and plant needs to adjust watering? Let me tell you all about it!

Banyan Water’s system uses a combination of hardware and software to adjust irrigation based on real-time weather data, soil moisture, and plant needs. Here is how it works:

  1. Banyan Water installs IoT devices and weather-tracking technology on the existing irrigation system of the property. These devices include flow sensors, smart meters, controllers, and soil moisture sensors.
  2. Banyan Water’s Irrigation Insight® software collects and analyzes the data from these devices and external sources such as weather forecasts, satellite imagery, and plant databases.
  3. Based on the data, the software determines the optimal watering schedule for each zone of the property, taking into account the water needs of the plants, the soil conditions, and the weather conditions. The software also adjusts the schedule dynamically in response to any changes in the data.
  4. The software sends commands to the smart controllers, which control the valves and sprinklers of the irrigation system. The smart controllers execute the watering schedule and report back to the software.
  5. The software monitors the performance and efficiency of the irrigation system. It provides real-time feedback and alerts to the property owner or manager. The software also generates reports and dashboards showing water savings and landscape health.
