Meet the Wise Orchard: a smart irrigation valve that connects to the Internet to use weather forecast data to take better care of your garden. It also takes into account the temperature and soil types in your local area. The device is designed to save you water and adjust the watering plan to take better care of your plants.
The companion app lets you control your zones and customize your watering schedule. The device is powered by 4 AA batteries and compatible with most drip irrigation and garden hose-fed sprinklers. It even works without an Internet connection. You can find out more on Kickstarter.
