If you’ve been outfitting your home with smart technology, you may be wondering, “what’s next?” You’ve got the fancy lighting, the remotely controlled thermostat, the video doorbell, but what else can you do?
Well, perhaps it’s time to invest in a smart home weather station or some smart garden devices. So, yes, you can now make your smart home even smarter by incorporating your lawn and garden, too.
Outfitting your smart home with a personal weather station is a great way to stay apprised of up-to-the-second weather conditions. And smart gardening devices can also help seriously simplify your life, leaving you more time for leisure activities.
Why rely on your local airport or weather observation station when you could have your own weather station?
If you’re an avid gardener, this kind of hyper-local information can make a huge difference in your planning. Plus, some weather stations even report on your own soil conditions – something you won’t get from The Weather Channel.
And, of course, those who enjoy other outdoor activities can benefit as well.
There are many types of smart home weather stations to choose from, and some even have mountable display panels. Most can also be accessed via your smartphone, too.
Love having a garden but hate getting your hands dirty? Well, smart home technology has expanded to the backyard now.
There are smart sprinkler systems you can even control via voice commands, for starters. Also, there are smart irrigation controllers that will even check the local forecast before watering your plants. Need a notification to remind you to add fertilizer? That’s a thing you can do, too.
One of the worst parts of summer is having to mow the lawn, but you might not have to anymore. Just like you’d use a Roomba to vacuum, there are now smart robot lawnmowers, too.
Down the pipeline are smart products for weeding and other landscaping tasks, too. Also, if you didn’t spring for a weather station with soil sensors, you can buy them as a standalone product.
