After placing your order, your Lono will ship in 2-3 business days.
Yes. Lono supports both iOS and Android platforms. Note: Android will be available in spring 2016.
Yes. You can check it out here.
Lono works at 2.4Ghz on 802.11 b/g networks and supports WPA and WPA2 encryption.
Yes. We will provide a public API for you awesome developers out there. Enjoy.
Many 3rd party sensors simply plug into a zone slot and don't require any special integration. Lono can support these. We have not yet approached 3rd party sensors that need special integration. That's on our to do list.
Yes. That said, some people complain that their local weather report isn't accurate enough for them so we've made this optional. Users can turn the local weather usage on and off in the application's settings. If you have it on and the weather report says it is currently raining in your area, Lono will automatically delay watering.
Initial pairing is automatic, but after that a user would need their username and password to access their account and authorize another phone.
Lono ships with a 120V AC right angle plug that is both FCC and UL certified. We encourage international customers who do not require CE certification to purchase and use a voltage converter similar to this.
We haven't been able to do enough long term testing with outdoor use. Therefore, for the time being we would advise against it. Even though Lono is splash resistant, snow, ice, and water sprayed up from below could conceivably get inside your Lono device. Also, UV rays will make the plastics age faster. Consequently, we are working on ways to make Lono comprehensively weatherproof. Most controllers that are outside have a weatherproof container box. If you replace your existing controller and install Lono inside an existing weatherproof container box you should be fine. In fact, here's a weather resistant controller cabinet from Orbit that works well with Lono. Along with the Orbit weather resistant cabinet, you might also consider looking at this Waterproof WiFi Indoor Outdoor Weatherproof Enclosure Cabinet Box from AA Communications.
In the near future, we intend to implement "daisy chaining". That is to say, if you have more than 20 zones you can simply install and daisy chain multiple Lono devices. This means your Lono devices will work together in tandem, and can be controlled under one account. We do not yet have a date for when this feature will be available.
Yes, anywhere you can connect to the Internet with your phone you can control your Lono. For example, you can have your Lono snooze if you are at work and it starts to rain.
Yes. This is a pretty common scenario in water-scarce areas. We've built this into Lono's time scheduling options.
Yes. Lono will work with pumps as long as you're using a 24v pump relay to connect to your Lono. The relay is wired into one of the 20 zones, and configured as a pump in the setup process.
No. You'll have everything you need out of the box.
Lono's dimensions are approximately 6.26" height X 6.03" width X 2.27" depth.
No. However, if you're concerned about the range of your WiFi network, you might consider purchasing an inexpensive Ethernet-to-WiFi bridge like this.
