keep your plants alive



About the Project

Helloplant is the ultimate smart plant sensor. It measures ambient and soil temperature. It keeps an eye on these parameters and sends you notifications, as soon as an action is required to keep your plant happy. Helloplant helps people without a green thumb, serial-plant-killers and play-it-safe cacti owners, but also plant lovers and professionals who would like to know more about their plants. It is waterproof and robust, so you can use it indoors or outdoors.

Reality Check

  • Claim:

    It measures ambient and soil temperature.

  • Reality:

    The sensors used are nothing complex, however they would provide valuable information for a plant owner to know the current state of a plant.

  • Claim:

    Notifies you when to water your plant and where to position it best.

  • Reality:

    The technology that exists supports the ability for the Hello Plant to notify the end user of anything that is relevant.

  • Claim:

    Battery lifetime >1 year

  • Reality:

    Battery life is always varied for different devices and battery sizes. Yet, the battery used and the lifespan claimed, adds up to support this possibility.

    Works indoors and outdoors.

  • Reality:

    HelloPlant is designed with the ability to function indoors and outdoors.

Bottom Line

Helloplant is a simple idea that can potentially help plant lovers and garden growers save their time and need to check on the plants. The technology has been integrated with an aesthetic design and been tested with working prototypes. Keep in mind that sometimes it is tricky to remember to turn bluetooth back on, when turned off and that can play into the full functionality of the helloplant notifying the end user.
