Monitoring plants, the smart way

indoor smart plant monitor

Ambient Temperature

Ambient temperature

It is crucial plants are in a suitable climate to thrive, so Sprout tracks ambient air temperature your plants are exposed to daily within 1°C accuracy.

Relative Humidity

Relative humidity

Humidity has extensive effects on plant growth and health, mainly impacting transpiration. Sprout measures relative humidity levels of the air with an accuracy of ±2%.

Soil Moisture

Soil Moisture

Plants need water to survive and it is critical they are not under or over-watered due to damaging health effects. Sprout uses a capacitive moisture sensor to measure the volume of water in the soil.

Sunlight

Sunlight

Sprout measures the intensity of sunlight using a sensitive photodiode which can detect when the plant is exposed to direct, indirect, or low sunlight.

WiFi Connectivity

WiFi Connectivity

At EzSoil, we believe it is important to keep you connected to your home ecosystem. Sprout has an onboard WiFi chip, allowing plant monitoring from anywhere in the world with a WiFi connection.

Battery Powered

Battery Powered

To ensure Sprout is portable, it is powered using an onboard battery. This ensures it is not limited to the reach of a power cable, or the amount of sunlight (solar power) it receives.

Versatility

Although we developed Sprout for house plants, it also works well in covered outdoor environments! Sprouts endless customization through the EzSoil dashboard allows for further flexibility depending on the use case.

Battery life

Having to charge your devices is a huge pain! We tried to minimise this pain by making Sprout last up to 100 days on a single charge, if you set the update frequency to once every hour. Not only that, charging takes only 2 hours to complete!

Reminders

*coming soon

Sprout reminds you through our web app when your plants need vital care, which otherwise would result in shrivelled up, lifeless plant. Having this layer of assurance reduces the risk of another one dying.

FAQ

Can Sprout be used in multiple plants?

Yes, you can use Sprout in multiple plants, although the previously recorded data will become invalid. This data is not vital to Sprouts operation but does give you an excellent overview of the plant's conditions over time. You can customize the recommended water, sunlight, humidity and temperature levels between plants to still provide you with accurate information on the plant's vitals.

How long and expensive is the subscription?

Great news. There are currently no paid subscriptions to use Sprout. You will be able to enjoy the luxuries of smart plant monitoring for free in addition to the original cost of the module. Additionally, you will have unlimited access to any over-the-air updates for Sprout and any new updates to the monitoring dashboard.

Is Sprout water-resistant?

Yes. The only way for water to enter the casings when the cap is on, is through 4 small slits on the side. These are angled down, and the sensor inside is water resistant. Under normal indoor conditions, there will be no problems. Although Sprout is water-resistant, it cannot handle being submerged underwater, so don't take it for a swim!

How big is Sprout?

Overall, Sprout is very small. The module rises 10cm above the surface, and the remaining 7cm moisture sensor is buried in the soil. Sprout can fit into the palm of your hand and therefore blends in very well with nearly all plants. Inside Sprout we have managed to fit all 4 sensors, but also a lithium polymer battery that allows Sprout to last 2 weeks without charge.

The journey of EzSoil - a NZ YES business

Our story

We built EzSoil from the ground up, and it took one heck of a journey to get to where we are now.

Identifying the problem

Our lives were too hectic to care for our plants and they kept dying. We struggled to keep them alive in the rush and bustle that is today’s society.

The idea - Sprout 🌱

Our passion for building a sustainable future sparked an idea. Why not bring our home ecosystem to our fingertips? We then developed Sprout, an all-in-one monitor that lets you track your plant’s health at a glance. You can take a few seconds to check your plant’s vitals and prevent them from becoming the lifeless, shrivelled up plant they would have become. You can built a network of Sprout’s throughout your ecosystem and develop a flourishing environment in your home.

Our mission

Sprout is one piece of a huge puzzle that is EzSoil’s mission; Building a sustainable future one plant at a time.
