Two of my orchids were not doing well, even though I though that I'm watering them properly and they have plenty of sunlight (as much as they need).
Once I got Koubachi, it showed me that actually they need to be water differently and at different interval, and also they were not getting enough sunlight (apparently even couple of feet away from window sunlight is so diffused that it is not enough for plants).
Anyway, I'm loving it! It reminds me when they need to be watered, when misted, if temperature is okay and if they have enough sunlight.
You no longer need to worry about plants, Koubachi will take care of that.

I was surprised that others found this product lacking. I purchased this when it first came out - before they had indoor vs. outdoor models. Mine says for indoor use only, but I am using it outdoors since I don't have plants indoors.

I finally had my front courtyard redone with planters with lavender and kumquat. I choose to use the sensor on the lavender planter - which doesn't yet have the drip irrigation - to remind me when to water it.

Admittedly, I thought this was just a fancy watering reminder. So I was pleasantly surprised to see how it can be customized to the type of plant you have. It's limited to just three sensors - temperature, light and moisture. (It can not tell you soil pH or nutrient content, etc.)

I found the setup process pretty straight forward and had no problem setting it up to connect to my home wifi (Apple Airport Express 2). I was glad I didn't need to enter some serial number and that at the end, the sensor was automatically connected to my account.

I was able to press the button on the sensor to update the data - just hold it for a second or two and I immediately went to my computer and saw the updated readings appear. Initially, the sensor said there was 0% moisture, but after I watered the planter and pressed the button, the sensor update said 68%. So I think it's working fine. It had the correct temperature also (72.4). I will see how long this device lasts outdoors - but as I live in southern California, I think it will be fine.

This device has been sitting in the box for probably a year now, and the batteries are still fine. Will update in a few weeks or months if anything happens - like if the batteries run out early or the device stops working.

I bought this device based on its working descriptions but it turned out to be a real disappointment. I went through the required calibration process, basically telling it when the soil is wet and when it is dried based on what I felt and it used those information to set up a reminder on my phone to let me know when to water the plant.

I expected this plant sensor to be smart enough to figure wet versus dry condition on its own but I was wrong. I thought the tip of the probe will sense how wet the soil is but it doesn't. There is no real time feedback of the soil condition! There is no real time feed back of anything!

This device is no more than a very expensive reminder. If you expect this sensor to be more than a reminder then you will be disappointed. I will return it for a refund.

I am not the typical Koubachi customer who is really into plants. I simply bought this device to remind me when to water a half dozen house plants I have in a room I don't go into that often. First off, the device I got was DOA -- not the batteries, but the device was defective. In the process of working with their Tech Support people in Germany, I was also advised the Koubachi app would not work with my iPad 1. Needless to say, I returned this to Amazon today.

I love the idea of this sensor. I like that you have the option of having it monitor a plant, then moving it to another. Being able to use it for more than one plant makes the cost more justifiable. However, I only gave it a 4 star rating because its a slow process, in 4 weeks I have moved on to plant number 2. Its takes about 2 weeks to properly go through a cycle and they recommend 2 watering cycles before moving onto the next plant. Unfortunately, by my own error (and lack of instructions with the item), I moved it to the 2nd plant improperly, losing my data for Plant #1. So, 4 weeks later - I have one plant almost through a full cycle. With the 27 plants that you can monitor with the app, this is going to be a very VERY long process. Still the app allows for manual input, so it still alerts me to water and mist in the meantime - which is still very helpful. But there is no way to manually input temperature and light without associating the sensor to the plant.

It sucks!!! Don't waste your money like I did or time. Koubachi didn't put a lot of work on their software design either. Very plain and poor on the data. It updates 2 to 10 days later if at all. You have to reset the sensor all the time. Is not real time data. I need real time information. Koubachi company sucks for selling this broken sensor ! Because they know the sensor has problem too.
