Blossom Smart Watering Controller Review

After a couple weeks of testing and live-fire runs, the Blossom smart sprinkler controller has been a very quiet competitor in the WiFi irrigation realm.

Quiet can be a good thing depending on your perspective. If you’re the type of person that doesn’t want to think about your watering whatsoever, the Blossom will do the thinking for you. You have no choice but to let it run free and trust it’s doing the job right.



PlantLink soil sensor review: A good start for a necessary gadget

After a few weeks of use and many of ups and downs, I consider the PlantLink soil sensor a decent addition to my smart garden.

The promise of PlantLink is to “Never worry about over or under-watering again”. I was disappointed that the sensor only reports on moisture, and not sunlight or fertility like other smart soil sensors. But PlantLink says they’ve talked to plant scientists and they say “the most important factor in keeping plants healthy is administering the correct amount of water”. I’m willing to go with that.



BlueSpray 16-Zone WiFi Sprinkler Controller review

BlueSpray sent me their 16-Zone WiFi sprinkler controller for an honest review and I can say that after two weeks of use that this is a good unit. I think this controller has so many great features for big commercial jobs with tons of zones, but comes up short for the average do-it-yourselfer. But this unit has one killer app that makes it stand above the rest of the field – more on that later.
