Hozelock have taken the win in the Garden Care (Accessories) Category of the Glee New Product Awards.
The win was widely predicted, with Hozelock bringing the high-tech world of internet technology to garden watering for the first time.
Watering can be controlled remotely by the Hozelock Cloud Controller and Hub connected to the user?s broadband router and activated by a wi-fi signal ? all via an app installed on a smartphone.
Adrian Davey, the company?s commercial director, said the product has been enthusiastically received by retailers at Glee. ?Advanced technology is widely used in many other areas of life but had not yet reached gardening, until now. People see how it will appeal to the next generation of users but also understand that the majority of gardeners are in older age groups and are used to using technology like this too.?
Adrian believes that the products ? which comprise the Cloud Controller and Hub, Sensor Controller and Easy Drip system ? represent good value for money, comparing favourably with other technology purchases.
