Week 48, Time for Koubachi Hiatus
25 Nov 05:17
At Koubachi we had an intense year with many new projects and new market entries. Now it’s time for us to reflect on the successes and failures of this year, and prepare mentally for the one to come.
We strongly believe that amazing things can happen when a team is allowed to think out-of-the-box, skipping conventional ways and getting to innovative great new ideas. We will be launching new products in 2014 and to make sure to give birth to even more beautiful and innovative products, we will shut down regular business from November 25th until November 29th.
But what does this mean for you, our dear customers and our community? All services are of course available, thus you can use the Koubachi apps as usual!
We will return to our normal schedule the following week (Monday 2. December). We hope you seize this chance to take a little break of your own. You’ve certainly earned it!
New Server Infrastructure Makes Plant Care Faster and more Reliable
19 Nov 07:38
Our recent investment in a better server infrastructure now pays off in several ways: the web app became much more responsive, we can easily cope with peaks in the server load, and the Wi-Fi plant sensors will use less battery as they get faster feedback from the servers.
We hope that this effort makes your Koubachi experience even more enjoyable!
Servers on maintenance
05 Nov 07:14
Our servers will be down for maintenance on Thursday 11/7 from 10am until 2pm (CET). During that time, the Koubachi website, store and apps will not be available. Thank you for your understanding - your Koubachi Team
Latest IFA News - Smart Garden
10 Sep 10:38
IFA 2013 is going strong and we have more exciting news we want to share with you. At this year’s show, not only did we announce the brand new Koubachi Wi-Fi Plant Sensor Pro, we also give a sneak preview of the Smart Garden of the Future (see our press release).
Being enthused about the products that are currently under development at Koubachi, we decided to share the excitement and show off some stuff that we are working on at the skunkworks of Koubachi. Leveraging our Plant Care Engine (PCE) to the max, we aim to not only give your plant a voice, but to make the whole gardening experience smart.
Studies show that as much as 50% of the water we use for outdoor irrigation is wasted. Making use of the comprehensive information of plant species and plant requirements contained in our PCE and integrating weather services, we are able to build intelligent devices, such as a smart irrigation controllers or smart sprinklers. By considering the weather forecast, the Koubachi Smart Controller for example is capable of not activating watering when it knows it is going to rain in one hour. Not only will your plants do much better, but you will also save a lot of water.
