Weathermatic released SmartLink as the first, affordable cloud-based irrigation control system for commercial applications in the Spring of 2012. As the pioneer and leader in Smart Irrigation control with more than 200,000 SmartLine Controllers installed, our goal was to offer our customers anywhere, anytime access at a price of less than $1000. We now have thousands of connected SmartLine controllers and the nation's leading Landscape Maintenance Contractors as our key customers. We have also launched mobile applications for iOS and Android that are making the system accessible from anywhere.
Since we launched SmartLink nearly two years ago, we have been listening to the feedback from our customers for additional features. We have also come up with some ideas for improved user experience as we've seen how are customers are using SmartLink. Meanwhile, software technology progresses at an extraordinary pace and we have realized the opportunity to take advantage of some of the latest web tools.
We are excited to announce the general availability release of SmartLink 2.0 that includes a new user experience and a host of new features requested by our customers.
