The Hozelock Cloud Controller smart garden watering system has picked up its third major award since its recent launch, receiving the Garden Product of the Year Award 2016 from Chelsea Flower Show organisers The Royal Horticultural Society.
Given top marks for originality, ingenuity, value for money and sustainability, the Cloud Controller was selected from 12 new products to win this prestigious award presented by Dragon’s Den investor Deborah Meaden and RHS Director General Sue Biggs. This follows earlier awards for Best New Product in the Garden Retail Awards and the winner of the New Product Award for Best Garden Care at GLEE, the UK’s premier garden trade exhibition.
The Cloud Controller, designed by Hozelock and PDD, and supported by Tangent 90 app and web developers, gives gardeners sophisticated control over their garden watering schedules, enabling them to water their garden from anywhere in the world with an easy-to-use smartphone app. Providing information about weather and conditions at home, users can set and adapt multiple watering times and durations, using less water and safeguarding the health of their plants.
Hozelock selected PDD as a trusted partner from several companies to help it explore, design and implement the end-to-end Cloud system. Integrating various technologies to make it easy to use, the system comprises mobile apps, a web server, ethernet hub and a wireless battery-powered valve. With the launch of the Cloud Controller to widespread acclaim, PDD is delighted to have helped Hozelock to be leading the market in connected gardens.
