Version 2 - Plant Sensor Indoor Optimized Software
Plant Sensor 2 Indoor is optimized for indoor use and covered plant locations. Even differentiates between sunlight and artificial light.
When plants are subjected to suboptimal growing conditions, they are under stress. This affects growth and survival. Therefore, Koubachi monitors limitations and excesses of the main vital factors. The Koubachi Plant Sensors measure soil moisture, sunlight, infrared light, ambient temperature and more to determine the vitality and exact needs of your plants.
We don't just consider sensor measurements but also in-depth knowledge about each species, climate, season and user preferences. Unlike any other solution, Koubachi calculates an individual care plan for every single one of your plants. As a result Koubachi can provide you with highly specific care advice, and if necessary plant-saving alerts.
Thanks to the self-learning sensor you can use one sensor to take care of up to 27 plants across your home. Put the sensor in one indoor plant, give it a little bit of time and Koubachi has learned everything it needs to know to provide you with accurate advice.
Notifications, advice and alarms are directly sent to you through push notifications or by e-mail. All your data, plants and settings are synchronized to the Koubachi cloud and thus always up-to-date on all devices. The app also helps you to identify your plants, or find additional in-depth information on hundreds of species. Available for iOS, Android or accessible via web browser.
Our patented soil moisture sensor - like a tensiometer, the tool used by professionals - measures the soil moisture tension. It determines the quantity of water that is actually available to the plants' roots regardless of the soil type. Unlike cheaper methods (electrical conductivity, dielectric permittivity, capacitivity etc.) Koubachi measures with high accuracy, independent of soil conditions (e.g. content of ions). No calibration needed. Works in every soil substrate with unmatched precision.
Koubachi is able to precisely determine the needs of your plants. Our plant care models were developed with leading scientists of ETH Zurich and validated in numerous greenhouse experiments. For each species, we have determined the optimal values of all vital parameters and for each time of the year. Moreover, we have established the thresholds at which non-reversible damage will occur.
With your permission we will send you a message with detailed care instructions at the right time. These notifications are customizable and tailored to your preferences. Select about which parameters you wish to be informed. Choose how often and at what time you prefer to be notified. Decide whether you want to receive a push-notification, an e-mail or both.
