SmartClub brings freelance work to irrigation

August 3, 2015 -  By

ETwater_logoETwater launched SmartClub, a program in which people can become ETwater ambassadors to promote water conservation and efficiency, as well as attempt to get people in their personal networks to subscribe to the program. Ambassadors receive a share of the revenue for each subscriber they activate.

A SmartClub member can sign up as many customers as they want to the subscription service. Each customer gets a low-cost device for their sprinkler and irrigation systems, an embedded wireless network account on ETwater’s 3G/4G wireless service, access to a cloud-based scheduling platform and concierge-level support, according to ETwater.

SmartClub members are able to ensure the devices are installed and running smoothly. They can also pick up other install, landscape survey or maintenance jobs in the SmartClub marketplace. In order to become a SmartClub Pilot member, individuals must participate in ETwater’s online training program and adhere to a professional and friendly code of conduct. They are entitled to $20 on activation per site, as well as 10 percent of the recurring monthly subscription fee for up to one year of the subscription term that any subscribers activate, reports to the company. Members also receive ETwater’s service free for one year.

“If you believe in water savings, or want to help others save our natural resources, you need our Smart Irrigation service and technology,” said Lee Williams, COO from ETwater. “The sharing economy has erupted over the past few years as individuals seek out flexible new ways to earn extra income from work they are passionate about. We realized there was a huge opportunity to apply this peer-based model to the smart irrigation space, so every resident and business in the country can get access to the capabilities of our platform and technology.”

Referencing a report from the Freelancers Union and Upwork, ETwater said its service follows a trend of American workers freelancing with companies like Uber, Airbnb and Task Rabbit. It also said the service follows a movement toward more efficient water systems, including smart home technology.
