Wireless soil moisture sensors.

I'm sure we've covered this at some point, but never heard of these guys until today.

Looks neat-o! Sure would take the difficulty of adding to an existing system out of the equation. I assume it would add a lot of hands-on interpretation and subsequent adjustment of the system.

Might try one when I'm done with my stockpile of moist-o-matic's.

Kidding,

I like the fact it is wireless. I wonder what the effective range is on one of these

These will only work on their central systems i believe. They are not cheap either. You can rent them for around 60$ a month for one. They recommend 3-5 sensors per green and only have a battery life of 3 years before you have to dig and replace them.


Good idea for golf course though.
