The Gardena Smart Sensor reliably measures the soil temperature and determines the soil moisture over an extra large sensor zone exactly where it is important, at the root of the plants. Either deep in the lawn and flower beds or in less deep flower pots. In combination with the Gardena Smart Water Control or smart irrigation control from the Gardena Smart system, the sensor ensures the plants are irrigated according to their needs and efficiently. The smart sensor transmits the current status data to the Gardena Gateway via radio. If the sensor measurement shows that the soil is moist enough, the next watering is skipped. The flat sensor protrudes only 20 mm from the ground and can thus remain on the lawn on which a robotic lawnmower is used without any damage.This text is machine translated.
