Who would have imagined that we could combine technology and gardening, but that is the case today. It is now possible to place certain connected objects with a view to ensuring good plant care. These can be connected with a smartphone, making them even easier to use. So they can be automated and managed remotely. That’s the whole point of having a connected garden.
Who is the connected garden for?
Having a beautiful garden, greenhouses and well-kept plants is everyone’s dream. However, one of the reasons why you can’t have one is maintenance. Of course, a green plant, whatever it is, always needs careful maintenance to ensure its development and above all its survival. This implies a significant amount of maintenance time, just for watering, pruning and other gardening techniques. Time and temperature also play an important role. Some plants, especially those in greenhouses, cannot withstand a sudden drop in temperature. This could cause them to dry out and lead to their death.
Indeed, for lack of time and to facilitate the maintenance of specimens adorning a house, the installation of a connected garden is necessary. How could we not be fascinated by this technological advance when all we will have to do is make a few clicks for the plants to be watered? The best thing is, if you have a smartphone, you can monitor their condition anywhere. There are many other services that everyone must be aware of.
What are the different connected objects in the garden?
The connected garden is made possible thanks to several devices. There are, for example, weather stations installed in greenhouses, but in a connected version. More precisely, they are used to monitor temperature, humidity or UV levels remotely. Thus, if ever there is a drop or a rise in temperature, the heating or remote regulation system will be activated. Thanks to this installation as well, the owner will be able to receive an alert message in case of a problem. Small wonders to be known also are the sensors.
These are devices that can be placed in pots or in the ground in order to monitor the growing conditions of the plant. In the same perspective, everything will be under control, such as light, temperature, fertilizer, watering, etc. Once again, an alert message can be sent to the owner’s smartphone in case of a problem. In addition, automatic sprinklers are very well known. They are connected via Bluetooth or Wifi and are activated automatically at a specified time. Don’t forget the lawnmower, the gardener’s best ally.
How to install a connected garden?
To have a connected garden, all you need to do is get the necessary devices as required. In any case, getting help from professionals in this field will make the choice of devices easier. Also, it will save time while searching for the right choice to make. Otherwise, you can benefit from the help of a technology expert to carry out the necessary installations such as for the weather station. This will avoid the risk of mishandling.
