New Server Infrastructure Makes Plant Care Faster and more Reliable

19 Nov 12:38

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!

Latest IFA News - Smart Garden

10 Sep 14:38

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.
