Parrot company, the manufacturer of great Bluetooth phone hands-free kits, high-end audio products (speakers and headphones) and entertainment products such as AR Drone quadri-copter is coming with a new "eco-geek" product. Unveiled 10 months ago at CES 2013 in Vegas, the Flower Power is a little device helping you take care of your plants by monitoring their light, temperature, water (soil moisture) and fertilizer parameters.
It acts as a sensor and will connect to your phone or tablet to sending real time alerts. The connection is made using Bluetooth Smart (also know as Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy / BLE) to supported devices, currently iOS only (iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPad 3, iPad mini and iPod touch 5th generation models). There's currently no word about an Android version, but it may be later available for Android 4.3 and above devices that support Bluetooth Smart.
The Parrot Flower Power will be available next month for $59.99 / €49.

How it works

By placing the Flower Power device into the soil of a plant (indoor or outdoor) the sensors built into its base can read most of the parameters (light, temperature, soil moisture and fertilizer) that make a plant healthy. To keep the readings accurate, the sensor needs to be placed at 10 centimeters around the plant to be monitored, if you have multiple plants under the same light/water/soil fertilizer condition you can use a single Flower Power to watch them all. It is also possible to use multiple Flower Power to monitor different plants.

The sensor on the Power Flower makes measurements every 15 minutes and store the readings. Connecting it to supported devices with Bluetooth Smart running Parrot free application will provide additional information and advice for each plant monitored thru the sensor. Wireless coverage from the Power Flower device to the smartphone/tablet…
