Our Top 3 Garden Gadgets

1. Hozelock Cloud Controller

We can not think of anything more exciting for a technology loving garden enthusiast than the ability to remotely control their own garden watering schedules from anywhere in the world.

Using an IOS or Android mobile device it is possible to create, remotely set, pause and adjust watering schedules.

Configuration of a watering schedule is as simple as entering a startime, duration and frequency.

The app also includes a local weather summary and notifications so you will always be keep informed of changes in weather patterns.

The system is very easy to install and can be expanded to control up to 4 remote taps allowing for a vast range of possibilities.

The Sensor Plus Controller can be used with Garden Sprinklers, low pressure micro irrigation watering or Water Butts.

2. Parrot - Flower Power

The Parrot Flower Power is a sensor that keeps an eye on your plants requirements and lets you know how they are doing by sending messages to your iOS or Android device.

Our first thoughts are, why don't Parrot partner with Hozelock and their Cloud Controller and cut out the middle man, if it happens you read it here first :)

This is a great little device for not only the tech savvy gardener but for anyone wishing to keep a close eye on a house plants and garden patio flower pots.

The App comes with a database containing over 7,000 popular plants, so the chances are whatever plants you wish to take care of will be there with information and tips on how to care for them.

3. Netatmo - Weather Station

The Netatmo Weather Station is a powerful iOS and Android compatible device which monitors temperature, humidity, barometric pressure, indoor CO2 concentration and sound.

The easy to easy to use app shows real time information and graphs and history.

We love this device, we have had one installed inside and outside of the office the just adding to many things we can fiddle with remotely.

The Netatmo Weather Station is available for around £126.00 at the time of writing this article which we think is a fair price for this great piece of kit.

It is possible to connect multiple stations to the smart phone app and multiple smart phones to a single station giving lots of possibilities if you need to monitor a number of locations.
