So PlantLink is finally shipping. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1387729422/plant-link-listen-to-your-plants
I should have mine in about a week or so. My understanding is that the links should be compatible with SmartThings directly out of the box. They use Zigbee and should communicate directly to the SmartThings Hub. I see that there is a PlantLink device type already, so this appears to be the correct information.
Do we know what we can do with these yet? Primarily I’m looking for the links to tell me when the soil for my specific plants are dry and need watering. I know that plantlink can do much more than this, but this is the primary thing I’m looking for. Anyone know if SmartThings will be able to do that? I’m debating whether to connect right to SmartThings or whether I should use the PlantLinks Hub.
