Parrot Flower Power monitor

Parrot has released a Bluetooth plant monitoring device at CES 2013, which sends data to the data cloud

Parrot has announced their newest innovation; a wireless Bluetooth sensor for plants which utilises a dedicated smartphone app to inform users on the health of their plants.

Working indoors or outdoors, Parrot claims the plastic sensor has a six-month battery life and comes in two colour variations. Users will insert the sensor into the soil alongside their plants allowing data to be transmitted via Bluetooth Smart to the cloud. The data is then analysed and sent to the user’s smartphone or tablet.

Containing a library of thousands of plants, Parrot’s accompanying smartphone app keeps gardeners informed of their plant’s needs, measuring sunlight, humidity, temperature and fertiliser.

Parrot says they will be exploring ‘eco-geek’ products, with 2013 marking a “new field of exploration” for the company.

As of yet, there is no official release date or pricing, however Parrot are promising that the product will hit the shelves sometime this year.
