What are Smart Garden Solutions

The twenty-first century is a fast-paced era. Many of us are increasingly mindful of our need for ‘me time’. Digitalisation is not just limited to our workplaces: it has long since entered our homes, where it continues to exert its influence. First, our television sets and VCRs became digital. Then we had PCs and notebooks. The next step added our illumination systems, heaters and kitchens to the ever-growing network. So far, it has not yet crossed the walls of our homes.

We are taking your home to the next level by making your garden smart. You as a user do not need any technical expertise to make this automation happen. After all, you probably want to enjoy your garden rather than learning about technology.

The Smart Garden is so much more than just an app-controlled watering system. Smart means: it makes your life easier. Intelligently coordinated systems exchange data and work as a unit – and for much more than just watering the lawn.

Our task at viRaTec is to develop these solutions. Enjoy your smart garden with MIYO.

Roland Grösslich


Roland Grösslich has a passion for thinking outside the box. He studied international project and innovation management.

In the mid-nineties, he started his sales career as a field representative of an insurance company. His voluntary work for one of the world’s largest non-profit organisations helped him to become an experienced sales strategist.

Alexander Lampret


Alexander Lampret has been a tech aficionado since he was little. Of course, his first career steps were in a technological profession: after studying electronics and telecommunications technology at technical college, he embarked on a degree in biomedical engineering and medical informatics at the University of Applied Sciences Technikum Wien. During his studies, he worked on projects in radio communication, microelectronics and embedded systems with great precision, passion and ingenuity.

He later joined a telecommunications provider as a sub-project manager on a large-scale IT project. This position allowed him to manage and direct intercultural teams of product developers. The varied challenges of international staff management and developmental responsibility have made him an exemplary CTO.
