Smart functions at a glance

Smart Technology from Einhell

Using your smartphone, you can now water your garden from anywhere*, thanks to the device's direct connection to the mobile network.
In "Smart Mode", the pump automatically creates a schedule that is optimised to the weather and your preferences.
Smart Mode uses real-time weather data for the current location of the pump to adjust the irrigation times accordingly.
Already have an Einhell Smart device? Perfect! With Smart Mode, they can coordinate with each other automatically.
The times that the pump will run can be set down to the minute using the schedule setting. This means you can now water your garden even more efficiently.
No more annoying limitations due to Bluetooth or Wi-Fi signal ranges. Communication takes place via the cellular network.

*Requirement: Existing mobile network coverage; within the European Union
You can check the mobile coverage at your home's location using the dead zone map provided by the German Federal Network Agency. 

Your benefits at a glance

More independence with the GE-AW 1144 SMART

Smart Mode

This pump is really smart! In Smart Mode, the irrigation system uses artificial intelligence, also known as AI, to learn and adapt to the individual behaviour of the user. The garden pump can use the available data and user behaviour to automatically create schedules that are perfectly tailored to the weather and your preferences. If you give the automatic water pump permission to use your location, it even incorporates data on the current weather. The garden pump learns in which weather conditions and at what time you usually water your garden, and creates its own schedule based on this. This really turns watering the garden into a smart and efficient irrigation process. If you already have other smart devices in your garden, they can automatically coordinate with each other via Smart Mode. You can select which devices are enabled for this beforehand in the Einhell Connect app.


No Wi-Fi. No Bluetooth. All you need is a stable cellular connection. This ensures wide coverage and lets you control the device no matter where you are. The smart irrigation system relies on two technologies: GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications) and NB-IoT (NarrowBand Internet of Things). The GSM standard was introduced in the 1990s and is one of the world's leading mobile communications standards. The NB-IoT standard enables devices and equipment to be networked with wide operating reach. This ensures good signal coverage even in places that are hard to access. Even when you're on holiday, you can water your lawn easily via the app.


Einhell Connect app

The Einhell Connect app turns the Einhell GE-AW 1144 SMART home and garden pump into an automatic irrigation system and brings smart technology to your garden. The app lets you adjust a wide range of settings from the comfort of your sofa. You can control irrigation schedules, view the system status and the time it was last synced, check live readings, such as water temperature or discharge pressure, and be notified of any important messages or information about your irrigation system. Furthermore, other Einhell smart devices can also be integrated and coordinated via the app. You can find more information about the Einhell Connect app here.
