Hozelock wins at Glee

Hozelock has won gold in the innovation section of Glee for its Cloud Controller.


The Cloud Controller (£114.99) allows gardeners to water their garden at the touch of their mobile – thanks to an App.  

The product uses a low-power, long-range radio signal to connect to the internet while the free App eliminates any need for complex timer programming.

Hozelock mareting manager Carol Wright said: "In a world where 328 million Apps are downloaded every day and the typical British household already has at least seven connected devices, gardens are finally becoming a natural part of the connected home. When we first presented Hozelock’s new Cloud Controller to international markets in April, the reaction was overwhelmingly positive and we are sure that the UK’s reaction will be similarly enthusiastic.

"Hozelock has carried out a huge amount of research and worked very closely with a wide cross-section of retailers to make sure that the Cloud Controller revolutionises automated watering and successfully increases sales in garden centres and retailers across the country."
