with various brands and types of central control. WMS is familiar with
and have worked with every major brand of Central Control product on the market.
We are factory certified on many, and are a Rainbird Nationally Certified "Authorized
Service Providers" (ASP) for the newest " IQ" Central Control product line.
There are many different manufactures that
produce quality "Central Control" packages and programs. Water Management
Specialist is a consulting group not a manufacturer or sales rep for any of the
manufacturers. We have worked with most, if not all of the
products that are currently available. The equipment and software that our
clients have drive some our services. We have "Central Control
Specialists" that have been to the "Factories" and have had more
intense "Factory" training and knowledge on specific products.
The following services are offered
to the up-scale residential, commercial, institutional, city government:
- WMS can provide an in depth "needs analysis" of the parameters required to
make an intelligent decision on the establishing of a central control program.

in on the key issues of water conservation of which central control will have
a positive impact with.
- WMS will work with the client in providing a realistic and
feasible site assessment of their existing irrigation system. From this
assessment, a realistic approach can be developed as well as
expectations can be identified. This information will allow the best use
of resources to repair, replace, or maintain the irrigation system. This
process will also assist in identifying what features of a central control the
client would gain the most from
- WMS will assist in the development of site specific
specifications for a central control system. This will include which
type of system is best suited for the client and there specific applications.
This decision is based on many different factors, as there is no "one size or
type fits all."
- WMS will work with the client to determine the most optimum use
of the many types of communications available in central control. The
decision to use radio, hardwire, telephonic, wireless, or internet based
communications is based on site conditions, expectations, operator skill,
money, product selection, expandability, security, and existing equipment.
We can provide radio surveys on site to determine availability and placement
of the Spread Spectrum Radios.
Central Control software set-up-
The majority of all central control systems require an in-depth software set
up. The flexibility and the over-all performance of these central
control systems is dependant on the accurate initial set up. WMS can
provide the data necessary to input the initial set up and then fine tune the
system as the central control system is brought on line.
Auditing, data gathering, and
data input- WMS has the knowledge and skills to perform all
types of water audits. They utilize their own proprietary software in
the development of key data necessary to operate a central control product.
They can provide initial site training to a client, so the client can perform
many of the labor intensive data collections with their own employees.
This is a major cost savings to the client. WMS will then compile the
raw data that the client has gathered , assimilate it, and download the data
into the central control software.

back-up monitoring- WMS can provide any level of computerization
monitoring the client may wish to employ. This can range from complete
remote site monitoring to "back stop" monitoring for a client. This
