AVAD has announced the addition of Rachio, a smart sprinkler control, to their extensive Works with Nest product lineup. In addition, Dropcases’ Waterproof Nest Cam enclosure is also new to AVAD.
Dropcases allow users to turn Nest Cams into outdoor installations for a new level of safety and security while providing incredible camera resolutions, real-time talk and listen, and night vision capability. The Weatherproof IP66 Enclosure from Dropcases is specially designed with a polarized lens and anti-reflection ring to give a crystal clear camera image in both daytime and nighttime settings. With the ability to run the Nest Cam cable through the gooseneck of the Weatherproof IP66 Enclosure, installation is quick and easy. To celebrate the addition of Dropcases during AVAD’s Outdoor Month, AVAD dealers will receive a free, weatherproof Dropcases with purchase of three Nest Cams during the month of April.
The Rachio smart sprinkler controller makes utilizing sprinklers easy while saving water and money. The mobile app lets users adjust their sprinkler system from their smartphone or computer. The EPA WaterSense certified Rachio controller connects to user’s Wi-Fi and accesses local weather data to automatically create and adjust watering schedules to save water and money, including never watering when it rains. A user can enter specifics about their yard such as soil type, vegetation, slope, sun exposure, and nozzle types to get the best possible recommendations. When users connect to Nest, they can get their Rachio water savings in their monthly Nest Home Report. Additionally, if their Nest Protect detects smoke, Rachio will cycle through their sprinkler zones for protection.
