Smart Garden Hub App

  • June 18th, 2015

Don’t have the ‘green thumb’? Not to worry – advanced networking technology and artificial intelligence may soon give you a helping hand in the garden.

A start-up company has designed the GreenIQ Smart Garden Hub system which uses real-time sensors, computing power and wireless communications to provide not only for the plant’s needs but also to help to reduce water consumption by up to 50 percent.

The system seamlessly connects to the internet and can be controlled from your smartphone, producing reports showing just how much water and money you save.

Not only can the Smart Garden Hub help you conserve water, it can also notify you of breaks in your irrigation pipes, and even control your garden lighting.

The idea came about when the founder, Odi Dahan, saw sprinklers working on a neighbour’s property despite a torrential downpour. “At the time, I wondered how much water had actually been wasted. This served as the impetus behind developing a solution that would allow easy control of an irrigation system via a smartphone, while also being able to dynamically respond to ground conditions and weather forecasts.”

Since the GreenIQ Smart Garden Hub went on sale in mid-2014, users have collectively saved over 7.5 million litres of water. The seed has been planted. Smart water conservation will only grow.
