Parrot Pot Gadget Guide

Parrot Pot is a smart pot that automatically waters your plants while measuring and analysing the parameters critical to their growth.
Parrot Pot takes care of everything:

  • it automatically waters your plant when necessary
  • it regulates your plant’s water consumption when you are away, and
  • it advises on the maintenance of your plant.

In real time and with precision thanks to four sensors, Parrot Pot measures data essential to the good health of your plant including:

  • soil moisture
  • fertiliser
  • ambient temperature, and
  • light intensity.

These data points are recorded every 15 minutes and transmitted (every two hours) to the Parrot Cloud for analysis by algorithms.

Advice and alerts specific to your plant are sent via the Parrot Flower Power app to help you keep it in good health, especially when your plant needs immediate attention. For example, Parrot Pot helps you to gain a better understanding of when more fertiliser is needed, or when your plant needs to be moved for optimum light.

Parrot Pot will be available in October 2016 and come in three colours: Black Slate, Red Brick and Porcelain White. It will cost AU$229.99 / NZ$249.00.
