Meet Grovio, a smart and wireless assistant to add to your smart home. Using specialized sensors, Wi-Fi networks and a built-in thermometer, this white cylinder tracks the light, temperature and humidity of your surroundings, and informs you about it in real time. Did we already mention Grovio was developed for plants?

This Amazon Alexa for plants might be the Internet of Things' answer to watering your plants. The device allows you to monitor and water your green friends remotely, by linking it to your smartphone. The plant butler lets you even speak to your plants via the app, resulting in name-giving scenarios and receiving text messages from your plant. Nature finds a way. Welcome to the Internet of Plants.
