PlantLink empowers smart gardening using low power sensing and cloud computing. The system combines a soil moisture sensor with an internet connected infrastructure to create watering profiles.

The PlantLink is placed inside the soil and will be able to calculate if the plant has had enough water or too much water. It is also connected to a phone app, so depending on the plant, it will require different watering needs it can notify the user through either email or text message!
