Smart Gardening Devices

Improve your gardening skills by using smart garden devices. Enjoy the benefits of a beautiful garden.

In the US, the DIY and gardening industry is worth $36.9 billion per year. The number of households spending money on their garden continues to grow. Teaming yardwork with smart technology is the next logical step.

Smart garden devices fall into four main categories. They come as sensors, sprinklers, robot lawnmowers, and lighting. There are plenty of devices to choose from in each category, so we’ve chosen products that are quick to set up and easy to use.

Read on to learn which products will help you boost your gardening game in 2018.

1. Edyn Smart Garden Sensor

Maybe you’re new to gardening and you’re not sure what plants will thrive in your yard. Perhaps you want a little help in how to look after them.

Push the Edyn sensor into the soil of your flower beds. It’ll measure a range of factors including temperature, pH, moisture levels, and nutrients. It can even detect the light levels enjoyed by each bed.

A companion app analyzes the data to tell you what will grow well. It’ll also tell you how to look after those plants. Its database contains over 5,000 plants so you’ll find something to suit your yard.

You won’t need batteries because the sensor is solar-powered. But make sure it’s in range of Wi-Fi to enjoy its features. It also monitors your garden, so you can stay on top of conditions in real-time.

A beautiful garden is an easy way to improve your wellbeing.

2. Netatmo Weather Station

If you like your sensors on the more sophisticated side, then try a home weather station. This model by Netatmo measures the microclimate in your yard. An indoor module helps you gather data inside your home.

You can track temperature, CO2 levels, air pressure, and even noise pollution. Such accurate weather reporting lets you mow the lawn or plant new seeds at just the right time.

It analyzes the environmental data to tell you what to plant and when. You can also buy rain and wind gauges, among others, if that’s still not enough data.

3. Rachio Wi-Fi Sprinkler

This Wi-Fi Sprinkler Controller by Rachio analyzes soil, plant types, and weather forecasts. It uses this data to create a customized watering plan. It saves water by not watering before it’s about to rain. The sprinkler also only waters as much as the plants need.

Choose between flexible and fixed watering schedules based on your location. Rachio adjusts schedules based on seasonal changes. Their website claims you can save up to 50% off your water bill. EPA WaterSense certifies their technology, which integrates with smart home platforms like IFTTT.

4. Husqvarna Automower

Mowing the lawn is the most thankless garden maintenance task. It’s also one of the easiest to automate using technology. The robotic lawnmower works much like a robot vacuum cleaner. Set up your program and leave it to drive around the yard cutting the grass.

This mower from Husqvarna lets you change the cutting height. It also boasts a range of safety features. It can navigate around obstacles and even has a PIN code so children can’t switch it on.

From full charge, it will mow for 45 minutes. Then it drives back to its dock to recharge for another 45 minutes. That frees you up to do other tasks around the garden.

5. ilumi Outdoor Smart LED Flood Light Bulb

These outdoor smart lights work much like indoor smart lights. Choose from a color spectrum to bathe your garden in flashes of pink or yellow. Change your color scheme to suit the seasons.

Schedule the lights to come on at different times of the day. It’s a great way to make it look like someone is home when you’re on vacation. You can dim them via an app, and the system supports up to 50 bulbs without you needing an extra hub.

These bulbs are also outdoor rated. They can survive blizzards, storms, or a regular bath from a sprinkler system.

Start small and choose one device for your smart garden. Add more as you become more confident in your gardening skills. Use your SURE Universal Remote app to control many of your smart devices from one interface, and enjoy the benefits of a beautiful garden.
