UgMO develops new technologies that deliver live soil conditions and actionable insights to people who care. UgMO is a dependable partner who supports those people, with people, making responsible actions our shared goal.
UgMO Technologies maintains end-to-end control of every aspect of the solution experience through controlling the product’s research and development, design, manufacturing, software, management, labor, installation, sales, maintenance, warranty and customer service.
Further, UgMO Technologies is a US based company, with its headquarters and manufacturing located in Pennsylvania. The wireless sensors measure soil moisture, temperature and salinity at the root level of the plant in real-time, up to six times an hour, 24 hours a day. This wireless sensor data is transmitted to the UgMO Irrigation Controller, which utilizes its patented, watering algorithms to deliver only the correct amount of water the landscaping needs, zone-by-zone.
The UG1000 system breaks the traditional watering schedule paradigm. There are no cycle times to set and no complex site variables to enter. Just tell the system when its allowed to water and using the sensor data, UgMO does the rest. The controller is also fully software upgradeable to incorporate future features. The UG1000 can be combined with the advanced UgMO Knows web-based software platform for sophisticated agronomic analytics, environmental monitoring, leak detection and remote configuration and control.
Recognizing that education is the foundation of all sustainability efforts, UgMO has partnered with Project Green Schools to support and inspire the next generation of environmental leaders to innovate new ways of driving water conservation. Through this partnership, UgMO develops impactful water conservation curriculum for K-12 students and sponsors the students implementing those initiatives.
In 1950, the Mood Sprinkler Company developed the first hydraulic irrigation controller for home use. Irrigation control was performed by a hydraulic (later electro-mechanical) system that required constant user management to account for variability in irrigation system, landscape, and weather conditions.
With the turn of the century, water resource management became a priority to account for drought, and conversely rain. Irrigation control solutions began using equations based on weather to approximate irrigation requirements.
Shortly after, irrigation controllers began incorporating rain and moisture sensors for simple binary commands (if it has rained, stop irrigation) to reduce unnecessary irrigation events. Though, proxy data and approximations continue to determine irrigation event durations.
In 2007, UgMO began developing the first and only soil based irrigation controller, using continuous zone-specific measurements and artificial intelligence to determine precision irrigation events. Today, UgMO delivers the most advanced irrigation control solution available.
