The Edyn smart gardening system uses a sensor, smart water valve and mobile app to help budding gardeners monitor and track their garden. The Edy provides guidance on how different environmental conditions can be improved and optimized, and can even water plants automatically.

The system revolves around the Edyn Sensor, which is powered by a rechargeable lithium-polymer battery and connects to the so-called 'Edyn Cloud' via WiFi. Data sent to the cloud can be analyzed and compared with a database of conditions in order to provide custom advice.

The sensor measures tmeperature, humidity, light, intensity and soil electrical conductivity and relays this information to the accompanying mobile app, which reports on factors ranging from soil moisture to nutrition.

The Edyn system even generates charts and graphs that show changes over time, helping users to understand the gardening process with great depth.
