For easy accessibility, it comes with a SmartPlant mobile app allowing you to control the indicator as well as the watering valve easily. Moreover, you can check the moisture level in the soil, light intensity, temperature and level of humidity for controlling water as well as the amount of fertilizer accordingly.
