Knowing about the plants
This 12.00 x 2.45 x 1.25 cm small everyday helper for people without green thumbs is connected to the smartphone and may save the plants on the windowsill. On the mobile phone screen with inserted sensor over Bluetooth everything important can be seen about the home plants like ph-value, temperature, lighting (if one irradiates) as well as soil humidity. Thus one knows in time when the plant must be watered the next time or if the exposure is too warm or cold for the plant.
It should be possible to measure the irradiation of the plant to an accuracy of 100 lumen, and the nutrient content of the plant can also be measured. The 130g light sensor has protection class IP05 and is therefore protected against water jets from any angle. How the connection with the MiHome App (Android, iOS) works can be seen in this video:
The MiHome app already contains most of the plants in the database, which will be followed by unknowns, so that your native floral splendour won’t wilt when you just look at them.To the gadget
