From the dirt near your plants, the $100 Edyn Garden Sensor will send you information on moisture, nutrition, light, humidity and temperature.

Edyn connects to Wi-Fi, so you can check on your plants from anywhere with the free iOS and Android apps.

You'll see the LED above the button blink as it looks for a Wi-Fi signal. The app will walk you through the process, and the sensor will use your phone to find your Wi-Fi network.

Once it's connected, you can use that button to check on Edyn's battery status. Green means it's good to go.

After it's up and running, you can stick Edyn's stem into the soil of your garden so it can start taking measurements.

Edyn's sturdy, and I had no trouble pushing it into the ground.
