Smart Water Valve for Growers


lumo water valves for growers

Lumo’s smart water valve gives growers full automation and complete control over their irrigations.  With built-in flow sensors, Lumo can confirm that automated irrigations are running according to plan and report back on how much water has moved through each valve.

How Lumo’s Smart Water Valve Works


Install a Lumo valve on any block or sub-block you want to control and monitor



Schedule irrigations with Lumo’s intuitive irrigation management software‎



Lumo valves run automatically while monitoring flow rate and water consumption

Smart Water Valve Benefits

Finally, growers can automate their irrigations with confidence by having visibility into the status and flow health of their block valves. 

Completely Wireless
Internet connected and solar powered for easy install and maintenance

Built-in Flow Meter

Know exactly how much water your crops receive

Innovative Design

Tamper-proof flow control and soft-close technology

Rugged Build

Fiber reinforced engineered polymer for added durability

Volume Based Irrigation Scheduling

Run irrigations based on volume of water, not length of time. When Lumo records the desired volume of water, it will close the valve, giving you precision control over your irrigations.

Detect Catastrophic Leaks

Lumo’s flow sensors play a critical role in detecting leaks in your irrigation system. If an abnormally high flow rate is detected, it is likely due to a broken drip line downstream from the Lumo valve.

Digital Record Keeping

All data captured from Lumo’s smart valves is recorded and saved for digital record keeping. This allows growers to instantly generate reports for internal use or compliance.

Smart Water Valve Frequently Asked Questions

We provide a 5G cellular modem that establishes the initial internet connection. 

Once that is complete, each smart water valve is connected to one another using a mesh WiFi network.

This makes it possible to cover long distances across challenging topographies and obstructions like tree lines. 

There is no limit to how many smart water valves you can use. Some growers only require a valve at the block level, while other prefer to create sub-blocks or even use a valve for each row of crops to achieve maximum control. With Lumo, you have complete control over how granular you want to get with your water distribution.
There is no expensive upfront cost for Lumo’s smart water valves. They are included with your yearly subscription fee, which is determined based on the number of vales you require.
No, the smart water valves do not require and expensive irrigation controller, as all of the settings are powered by Lumo’s cloud platform. As long as you’re using a Lumo valve, you have the ability to control it from anywhere with Lumo’s software platform.

Not hard at all! Lumo valves were designed for easy retrofit on any drip irrigation system. Typically the installation time can be completed in under 10 minutes.

What makes Lumo different from other irrigation automation solutions is that you don’t need to rip and replace your existing system or invest a lot of money upfront in hardware costs.

Our goal is to make precision irrigation affordable and accessible to all growers.
