If like me you are not the best at looking after houseplants and could do with a little direction and help. A new smart plant pot called Planty has been developed by nthing, to give your house plants a little extra help and assistance.
Planty is an Internet connected plant pot that allows you to monitor your plants health via a smartphone companion application, providing you with notifications and updates to help you water and nurture your indoor plants as they need.
Watch the video below to learn more about the Planty smart plant pot and how it will allow you to “connect with nature” using the latest technology. The creators of Planty explaining a little more about their unique smart pot.
“Plants are no different from humans. They breathe, they drink and they require nutrition. However, they can’t communicate and tell us what they need, so many dry to a silent death.
Wouldn’t it be awesome if you could here what your plants are so desperately trying to tell you? Meet PLANTY, the Internet-connected SMART POT that gives your plants the unprecedented ability to communicate their needs to you. Planty connects to the Internet via Wi-Fi and monitors your plants’ soil, temperature, light and water levels. All this data is delivered directly you to via the Planty app on your smartphone so you can react appropriately.
For example, if your plant’s ambient temperature is too high or too low, Planty will send you an app notification so you can adjust the room temperature or move it to a more appropriate location. Or if your plant is dry and needs water, you can water it DIRECTLY from your mobile app! Just press a button, and Planty will take care of the rest.
Over time, Planty’s algorithms enable it to learn more about the perfect conditions for your plant and provides you even better suggestions on how to help it thrive.”
