The future is here! It’s out with the old and out-dates ways of doing things like guessing and relying on your intuition, and time to embrace incredible technology and innovation. It’s time to turn your house into a smart home. Early adopters of technology designed to make your home smarter and your day easier are reaping the benefits of energy efficiency, convenience, and style. This goes way beyond a smart TV, technology is helping the world grow, literally.
What makes your house a home are personal touches, like family photos and artwork, decorative accessories, and potted plants. While digital photo frames have been around for about a decade, they are dated and the trend is to revert back to printed and framed photography or to have your photographs printed and mounted onto canvas. Decorative accessories, like fibre-optic light figurines of the 1990’s, didn’t stick around long, slowly making their way into basements and attics.
Turning your house into a home with smart technology
If you don’t have a green thumb, don’t panic, there is a solution. If you’ve had houseplants in the past which haven’t survived, because of under or overwatering, not knowing where to place them in your home, or generally taking care of them, you can now take advantage of technology to give you a helping hand. The Parrot Flower Power is the new device, which will give you all the power you need to succeed.
The Parrot Flower Power is a device designed to monitor the moisture, temperature, sunlight and fertilizer levels for your house plant and/or garden, and send the information directly to your iPhone through an easy to install and use app. It enables you to get the most out of your home and garden. Operated on a single AAA battery, the Parrot Flower Power sends information to your iOS device via Bluetooth.
Does the Parrot Power Flower really work?
The short answer is yes. Fabulously in fact. It takes the guesswork out of either indoor or outdoor gardening by giving you real time data and advice on how to best care for your plants. Great for both novice and experienced gardeners, it fuses a variety of technologies to provide you with the best possible information. Parrot Flower Power is designed to blend in with an aesthetic design of a young plant, naturally blending into a potted plant or garden.
The set up is a piece of cake. Just insert the battery, put the Parrot Flower Power next to the plant you want to monitor, install the app and input the type of plant, and you’re done! After the first 24 hours you get a live feed of all the information about to the environment conditions of your plant at that very moment, giving you a full run down of plant care to ultimate growth success. You can create a task list to help craft the perfect environment for your plant, along with scheduling reminders to water/feed. Notifications get sent directly to your iPhone, taking the guesswork out of plant care.
Plants and flowers are the ideal way to bring life, colour, atmosphere and a breath of fresh air into your home. The Parrot Flower Power gives you the help you need to keep your house plants thriving, year round, with smart data, reminders, and alerts, so you can transform your home into a Garden of Eden in no time at all.
