Koubach iPlant Sen­sor 2 Pro

Mac Format - - RATED | KIT - £169 Man­u­fac­turer Koubachi, koubachi.com | Jan­uary 2015

1 We know it sounds a bit mad to have an ex­pen­sive Wi-Fi­con­nected sen­sor jammed into the soil of your plants, but it’s worth it. Pick the va­ri­ety from an ex­ten­sive cat­a­logue and it will tell you on your iPhone when to wa­ter and fer­tilise it, and if it’s get­ting enough light. And if that’s all you need, you’d be as well to get Par­rot’s Blue­tooth Flower Power (£47). This Pro ver­sion of the Koubachi Plant Sen­sor 2, though, has a pow­er­ful web por­tal for pro­fes­sional grow­ers, let­ting you ex­port raw data for fur­ther anal­y­sis, and set up cus­tom alerts. Christo­pher Phin

Overkill for all but the most pas­sion­ate home gar­dener, but po­ten­tially huge for pro­fes­sion­als and re­searchers.
