    Do not understand WA conditions

    • Written by from East Perth

    I bought five of the outdoor sensors.
    They keep telling me my plants are too warm and the sun is too bright.
    The temperature and daily sunshine quota is still quite moderate for WA.
    When I contacted Koubachi their response was:-

    "You are free to just ignore / disable temperature and light and just use the soil moisture sensor."

    Nice Thought

    • Written by from Berkeley

    I think the Koubachi concept is good, but have had some difficulty using it. I have the outdoor model, and placed it in the pot containing my tree peony plant. First off, this plant is not in the Koubachi plant library, and I've sent emails and photos to the support staff over several months about adding the peony to the database. Support has responded and thanked me, but still there is no peony in the library. The device monitors the level of moisture, and I find that useful. The fertilizing notifications are not so helpful, since I fertilized after receiving a notice that it was time to do so, and yet have continued to receive notices that the plant needs fertilizer. I believe there are some problems to work out with the Koubachi sensor. It's fun to use, and a delightful idea and I hope these small problems will be resolved.

    Broke after 3 weeks, and would not connect to new router

    • Written by from Kolding

    Well... Too expensive, couldn't connect with my new router no matter what tried. And last, the tip broke off. Not really worth the high price tag.

    A Wonderful Tool for Monitoring a New Potted Plant

    • Written by from San Antonio

    I bought this for my gardening spouse thinking it would be useful for monitoring the moisture content of plant beds around the house. That is not the best use of this tool. It is a tool for monitoring a potted plant within WiFi range that is new to you or is in stress. It monitors the water and light conditions of the plant it is located with and provides email reminders on when to fertilize, water, mist and whether the plant is receiving enough or too much light. It is an excellent tool and has a rather extensive library of plants that covers most of the specimen you will deal with.

    This has saved my garden

    • Written by from BELLINGHAM

    In my busy life, I wonder why I even try to garden except that I love eating food that I produce myself. This sensor has just been the perfect assistant. Works great both outside and inside. It is especially helpful for the plants in my greenhouse. The app is very well designed and it is both fun and informative to use it. I find I am more engaged in my gardening with this useful tool. Highly recommend this to anyone who wants to do as good a job as possible tending the plants.
