With Flower Power, Anyone Can Have a Green Thumb
Parrot Flower Power is a sensor that can be "planted" close to a plant, indoor or outdoor, in a pot or in open ground. It precisely measures, in real time, the parameters that are crucial for the growth and good health of plants: soil moisture, fertilizer, ambient temperature, and light intensity. Plants have vital needs. Parrot Flower Power uses advanced sensor technologies to monitor the plants' welfare through a range of parameters. Using the data gathered every 15 minutes by the four sensors, the user is able to understand the exact requirements of their plants. The materials chosen for manufacturing the Flower Power ensure the product is watertight and robust. The Parrot Flower Power can be used both inside and outside (from -10 °C to 55° C). Waterproof, it can withstand watering, rain, and liquid fertilizer. Put it in the ground or in a pot and monitor the changes in your plants and garden.
Bluetooth Smart & Real Time Monitoring of Multiple Plants
The data retrieved by the Parrot Flower Power is sent to your Smartphone or Tablet using Bluetooth low energy technology, allowing it to communicate with Bluetooth Smart Ready devices. Bluetooth Low Energy, integrated into recent Bluetooth version (v4.0) is the latest wireless technological standard which consumes very little energy. When you are near your Flower Power, you can use Live mode to check the light intensity, ambient temperature and soil humidity. Every 15 minutes Flower Power measures four data sources and stores the data in its memory. Every two hours Flower Power sends data to your Smartphone via Bluetooth Low Energy. If you are not within Bluetooth range, it keeps the data in its memory until you are back within range (data kept for up to 80 days). Alerts are sent to your Smartphone each time one of your plants needs attention. There is no need to be near your Flower Power to get the notifications. A Parrot Flower Power can monitor several plants in the same pot, in a planter or on a small plot of land if the conditions of watering, soil drainage, exposure to the sun and wind are uniform.
A Free Dedicated App
Download the Parrot Flower Power App on your Smartphone or Tablet. The application will then connect your Flower Power to the Parrot Cloud (via 3G/4G or Wi-Fi) where the data is analyzed. After the data is analyzed, you receive an alert in real time when one of your plants has special water, fertilizer, light, or temperature needs. Follow the changes in your garden directly or simply consult Parrot's vast but easy to use database. Using the application, the user can select their plants from the database in the Parrot Cloud, which has been developed by botanists. More than 6000 varieties are listed and custom advice is given on maintaining each plant.
Garden — monitor multiple plants at the same time
With the Parrot Flower Power App, you can track the status of multiple Flower Power sensors, and the health of your whole garden.
"To Do" list
As well as monitoring the status of different plants, the Parrot Flower Power App will create a "To Do" list based on current alerts and the predicted status of your plants over the next few days.
Water & Fertilizer
The Parrot Flower Power App monitors the moisture level in the soil surrounding your plant and can track it over time, allowing you to plan for regular watering. By also tracking the fertilizer levels, you'll be able to plan when to add plant food to your scheduled watering.
Heat & Light
The Parrot Flower Power App will give you a chart of the temperature levels in the soil of your plant and compare it with the ideal levels for your chosen plant species. The Parrot Flower Power sensor also keeps track of the amount of light your plant is receiving and will warn you when conditions are too shady or too bright.
When the water, heat, light or fertilizer levels of your plants are in need of special attention, the Parrot Flower Power App will create an alert to tell you what needs to be done.
If all the levels are currently good, the Parrot Flower Power App can help you plan ahead for when you need to water or feed your plants.
