Grove Smart Plant Care Kit

Introduction

Grove Smart Plant Care Kit is a ease-to-use and advanced tool kit for you to develop a smart system for plants. It favors extensibility to achieve more applications with just a few adjustments. The kit implements two functions. One is to detect environment factors affecting plant growth such as soil moisture, illumination intensity, temperature and air humidity, all the data detected can be read on OLED display. Another one is to water plants automatically through the environment monitoring.

Features


  • Ease to use, you can build your plant-care system quicker.

  • Smart and highly integrated modules which enable rich features to your projects.

Specification


Please refer to each modules’ specifications:

Application Ideas


  • Smart plant-care system.

  • Household air humidity and temperature detector.

Note that the ideas listed in this section is only some clues to this kit’s massive applications.

Help us make it better

Thank you for choosing Seeed. A couple of months ago we initiated a project to improve our documentation system. What you are looking at now is the first edition of the new documentation system. Comparing to the old one, here is the progresses that we made:

  • Replaced the old documentation system with a new one that was developed from Mkdocs, a more widely used and cooler tool to develop documentation system.
  • Integrated the documentation system with our official website, now you can go to Bazaar and other section like Forum and Community more conveniently.
  • Reviewed and rewrote documents for hundreds of products for the system’s first edition, and will continue migrate documents from old wiki to the new one.

An easy-to-use instruction is as important as the product itself. We are expecting this new system will improve your experience when using Seeed’s products. However since this is the first edition, there are still many things need to improve, if you have any suggestions or findings, you are most welcome to submit the amended version as our contributor or give us suggestions in the survey below, Please don’t forget to leave your email address so that we can reply.

Happy hacking
