Koubachi and GreenIQ Partner to Develop Smart Garden Eco-System09.01.2015 13:12
Swiss company Koubachi, the plant care expert and GreenIQ, an Israeli leading garden automation IoT startup have established a partnership between the two companies’ products, Koubachi Plant Sensor 2 and GreenIQ Smart Garden Hub.
Each company developed an innovative solution that working together provides consumers with an easy and economical way to take care of plants. The partnership between the companies will immediately allow seamless communication between Koubachi Plant Sensor and GreenIQ Smart Garden Hub cloud services. Customers will be able to enjoy a fully automated residential garden watering solution and to save money on a daily basis, while keeping their garden and lawn lush and green.
The Koubachi Plant Sensor is a high quality tool that measures soil moisture, soil temperature, sunlight, IR light and ambient temperature – enabling the gardener to monitor and care for plants perfectly. The corresponding Koubachi App works as the control center and notifies the user of the plants’ needs based on the information provided by the Wi-Fi sensor. The continuously growing plant database ensures optimal care for all common types of plants. Depending on climate, season, species, sensor measurements, weather and more, Koubachi knows precisely what the plants need (e.g. when and how much water should be applied).
The GreenIQ Smart Garden Hub controls irrigation scheduling based on past, current and forecasted weather, and saves up to 50% of outdoor water consumption. The Smart Garden Hub connects to the Internet via Wi-Fi and can be controlled from anywhere, at anytime using its app. By connecting both companies’ cloud solutions, homeowners are able to create fully autonomous smart eco-system in their garden and further improve water preservation. The technology is available for both existing and new Koubachi and GreenIQ products’ users.
