The Vermont-based AgTech startup Seedsheet, has unveiled its newest product, the Garden Guru Sensor. The Garden Guru Sensor is a Bluetooth-enabled sensor (BTE) that provides users with precise, real-time data to facilitate maximum plant growth and ensure everyone’s gardening experience reaps the benefits of homegrown food.
Seedsheet’s new BTE sensor ensures thriving, full-sized gardens no matter the gardener’s skill level. It tracks real-time data for soil moisture, UV light exposure and ambient temperature of the garden environment for optimal growing conditions. The sensor has a wide Bluetooth range for easy monitoring throughout the day and enough battery power to last through a full gardening sensor.
“We designed the Garden Guru Sensor as a direct response to the common pain point consumers face while gardening, maintaining a healthy garden and the ability to grow their own food at home,” said Cam MacKugler, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Seedsheet. “We wanted to make gardening so ridiculously easy that all you have to do is add water, and with the Garden Guru that is all you need. Now, even complete garden novices can grow a full-sized garden in no time and enjoy the freshest food possible.”
The Garden Guru Sensor is designed for any of Seedsheet’s garden kits or for the conventional grower. Users can simply place the sensor in their garden and monitor the “dirt data” from the Garden Guru companion app. The app will allow users to receive updates from their garden in which they can track germination progress and receive automated tips and video tutorials throughout the lifecycle of the garden, prolonging the harvest and ensuring multiple meals.
A geo-location feature also integrate with weather APIs for real-time weather updates for users to track in their region. The Garden Guru app will be available for Android devices on the Google Play Store and iOS devices on the App Store.
