Flower Power connects your plants to your phone

By

The team behind the AR.Drone quadricopter, French tech company Parrot, has announced the release of a wireless iOS plant monitor in Australia.

Known as Flower Power, the gadget is described as a "smart wireless sensor" that utilizes Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology and four built-in sensors to monitor light, temperature, fertiliser level and soil moisture of over 6000 plants across more than 2000 plant species.

Once "planted" next to a plant and paired with a compatible iOS device through the company's Flower Power app, the sensor will analyse each plant at 15 minute intervals, sending data to Parrot's cloud database every two hours.

Parrot said the home screen of your app will show your monitored plants, and you can tap their photos to view an agenda that lists future tasks: what days you need to water and fertilise them and whether they might need to be taken outside for some more sunlight.

A quick-view icon also allows you to know which plants need some love and care. A green icon means everything is going swimmingly, whereas a red icon means an action needs to be performed or completed.

The Parrot Flower Power will be available for $79.99, which includes the free app, and will be stocked at both local Apple and DIY stores this month.

A full listing of stockists will be available on the Parrot website here.
