What does viRaCube do different?
Each information and configuration is stored locally on viRaCube. Therefore no internet connection is needed. If worldwide access is needed, an internet connection is required.
All outdoor devices are powered by solar energy. There is no need to change batteries anymore.
To prevent irrigation problems because of low water pressure, all valves are automatically staggered. If needed this function can be deactivated for each irrigation area separately.
What does „irrigation area“ mean?
Depending on the water pressure (water supply, pump for ground water, water well) a defined areas can be irrigated.
What does „amount of pipes“ mean?
Is it possible to include viRaCube into existing smart home systems?
Yes, we are going to provide an API for other systems. The implementation priority for all necessary plugin mainly depends on feedback and requests.
What makes viRaCube sustainable?
What are we doing different?
The devices used outdoor are supplied with solar energy, which makes it possible to abstain from usage of batteries. Therefore viRaCube offers the ability to avoid hundreds of batteries a year and the caused waste.
The system can be easily extended, because all used components are connected with radio and no cables need to be installed.
Are there one-time or continuous costs?
If the garden is intended to be controlled from everywhere it is possible to enrich the system with the usage of viRaCube’s cloud services. This can be achieved with a low continuous fee which includes additional features, such as a holiday function, which forwards notifications from the garden to a desired person.

How does the system work?
The measurements are collected by sensors and delivered to viRaCube. This is where the magic happens. viRaCube controls the valves due to the required amount of water.
