A new garden sensor looks to make planting and growing food easier and more precise, according to CNET. It combines with a water valve to monitor soil and air quality near plants to water them as needed.
The devices were developed by Edyn, a startup company that wants to make gardening more enjoyable for the average person. In line with that mission, the company has tried to make the sensor and water valve precise enough for professionals but simple enough to use for amateurs.
An accompanying smartphone app puts control of the system at users’ fingertips. It allows for checking current soil moisture, temperature and pH, as well as suggesting plants that thrive in differing soil types.
