Your iPhone can be used for mowing lawns

Posted by David Gomez

Are you too lazy or too busy to mow your lawn? Now you can use your iPhone to get the job done.

That’s because Husqvarna’s Global Garden Report 2011 says that 40 percent of consumers around the world say they don't have enough time maintain their homes and gardens. As a result robotic mowers have been an awesome product for homeowners. It will get even easier with the new iPhone app for Husqvarna Automower, available for free at the App Store.

With the new iPhone app you will be able to mow the lawn without even being at home. Any of the Automower robotic lawnmowers equipped with a GPS Communication Unit can be remotely started and stopped, as well as being tracked on your iPhone screen. The app also has helpful movies, a buying guide and FAQs.
    
It appears that we are one step closer to a remote controlled kill-bot.
    
"We all want a well-kept lawn, but few are willing to invest the time needed. With the help of Automower we made life a little easier for house owners. With the iPhone app we take gardening one step further. With its help you take control of your lawn as easily as making a phone call," says Stefan Axelsson, Business Development Manager at Husqvarna.
    
The GPS Communication Unit is available with most of the Automower models and in 2011 it comes as standard for the 260 ACX model. The GPS Communications Unit also supports a GPS theft tracker and SMS alert. Yep, it’s a lawnmower that sends you text messages.
    
The Husqvarna Group is the world's largest maker of outdoor power tool products including chainsaws, trimmers, lawn mowers and garden tractors. Husqvarna is also the European leader in consumer watering products and one of the world leaders in cutting equipment and diamond tools for the construction and stone industries.
    
You may not have known that this technology existed, but its existence will surely pave the way for other remote controlled house chore products. I have been saying for a while that someone needs to invent a robotic trash can that takes itself outside and deposits the bag where you tell it to.
    
Maybe someday the dream will be a reality.
    
You may not be a fan of Apple, but they have made it possible to do some pretty neat things with their devices. Lazy and worked people should especially appreciate what mobile network technology can do.
