2015 was an amazing year for the IrriGreen Genius™ Irrigation System.
After already winning a Product Innovation Award (PIA) from Architectural Products in 2014, IrriGreen went on to win numerous more accolades throughout this year.
Here’s a timeline of some of the awards that the IrriGreen Genius™ took home in 2015:
- In May, IrriGreen was a winner in the 2015 Eureka! Awards competition sponsored by the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal. These awards recognize exceptional companies and inventive entrepreneurs.
- In June, the editors of BUILDINGS magazine selected IrriGreen as a Money-Saving Product. IrriGreen was the only irrigation system judged to be a product that saves money for commercial property owners and facility managers.
- In October, IrriGreen was named a finalist in the Minnesota High Tech Association’s (MHTA) 2015 Tekne Awards, which recognize Minnesota’s best and brightest in the science and technology industries.
First Came the Awards, and then Came the Patents
The awards for IrriGreen demonstrate the value of our technology innovation that advances lawn irrigation. Now the intellectual property that makes our Genius® Sprinkler System unique has been validated and recognized with our first two patents.
IrriGreen has announced that we have been granted two patents in Australia. One (patent #2013200998) covers the design and function of our multi-volume spray nozzle. The other (patent #201324391) is for IrriGreen’s unique software algorithm, which controls the direction, stream distance and rotational speed of our sprinkler heads.
These two patents are the first of ten that we have filed in the U.S., Europe and Australia.
No other lawn irrigation system on the market works like IrriGreen. That is why patent protection is so important.
How the Genius® Sprinkler Works
Using digital technology inspired by commercial inkjet printers, our digital irrigation system technology automatically adjusts the direction of the spray, the distance of the streams and the rotation speed of the sprinkler heads to “print” water onto landscapes.
By precisely controlling the distance, power and direction of the sprays, our sprinkler system drastically cuts down on the amount of water that you use for lawn irrigation. Because there are no inefficient overlapping sprays or wasteful sprays onto sidewalks, patios, streets, etc., you can use up to 50 percent less water each time you water your lawn.
Changing the Landscape of Lawn Irrigation Today
IrriGreen installs easier and faster than conventional sprinklers, is simpler to adjust and maintain, and it saves water. The IrriGreen Genius® Irrigation System requires just one sprinkler per zone and no lateral lines. IrriGreen saves labor time and costs on every installation. IrriGreen attains unmatched water conservation with spray accuracy and watering uniformity unimaginable with ordinary systems.
IrriGreen… Smart Control. Smart Sprinklers. Irrigation that’s Genius – and patented.
