Have you ever thought of smart gardening? Do you wish to use technology for taking care of your plants…Why not? So we have a smart gardening tool for you, the new Grove – Moisture Sensor v1.4.
The sensor is very easy to use. Just insert it in the soil and read the date from the sensor using ADC. It consists of 2 probes that allow the current to pass through the soil and obtain resistance values to measure soil moisture current. It can decide whether the plants in your garden need watering or not by detecting the moisture of soil or to judge if there is water around the sensor.
This sensor can be used to automate watering plants. You can use it for botanical gardening and consistency measurement. Let your gardening be smart with the sensor’s technology and let the plant in your garden be able to reach out for human help when they’re thirsty. So buy it now and make your gardening work smart!
