CNET First Look
GardenSpace sprays down plants or pests to protect your gardenBoth a sensor and a sentry, this smart garden tool helps you care for your garden and watches over it when you can't.
We reviewed a few smart plant centers at CNET but nothing like this. This is Garden Space. It's big. It has a rotating head with cameras and sensors and it attaches to a hose and squirts water. Think of it like a century for your garden. Attach your own house to arm it, and it keeps it's self alert with it's solar panel. It uses it's bird's eye view of your plants to monitor their health, and instead of getting down in the dirt and measuring the soil moisture like the other sensor we've tested, GardenSpace uses an infra-red cam and remote temperature sensors to detect the water stress level of your plants When your plants need a little attention, Garden Space can turn, aim, and give it a drink. Better yet, if you're growing food, Garden Space has motion sensors so if a critter comes looking for a snack, Garden Space can go on the offensive and deter the critter with a quick dose. Now, GardenSpace is still a prototype. So, some it's functionality is still being developed. When it is done, it should also be able to send you alerts if it senses other help problems with your plants, so that you can intervene by adding fertilizer or do some more intensive care. The app will give you specific recommendations based on what you are growing. And you can also get recommendations on what. To grow. A pest squirting plant watering sensor complete with a thorough database of knowledge certainly sounds cool. Garden Space is launching a crowd funding campaign today we'll look forward to testing the final product once it's ready.
