Green IQ, a start-up in Israel has designed a system called the Smart Garden Hub to combat an important consequence of climate change – water scarcity. It uses realtime sensors, computing power and wireless communications to provide for plant needs and reduce outdoor water consumption up to 50%. The device allows easy control of an irrigation system via a smartphone, while also being able to dynamically respond to ground conditions and weather forecasts.
In almost a year, Smart Garden Hub users have collectively saved over two million gallons of water by only coordinating the garden’s watering system. Beyond household use, the Smart Garden Hub is well suited for professional gardeners, irrigation companies, commercial real estate and municipalities.
