Add a bit of light, life and character to your garden with these Solar Powered Garden Pals! The Solar Snails Garden Pals (Pair) from Smart Solar is a fun way to add decorative lighting and a whimsical touch to your garden, patio, flower beds, or porch steps without increasing the electricity bill. With their googly eyes and smiling faces, the Solar Snails Garden Pals turn outdoor lighting into a fun experience perfect for anywhere you need a burst of light in the evening. The snails are powered by an integrated solar panel that uses the sun’s energy to recharge the internal and replaceable Ni-Mh batteries so the snails can function electricity-free with no operating costs. After harnessing and storing the sun’s energy with a built-in photocell sensor, the snails will automatically turn on in low light situations and turn off automatically when there is ample light. The lights require no scheduling or programming, but it is important to make sure each light is placed in a location where it will receive the maximum amount of sunlight each day. Install these decorative solar lights in areas outside your home and watch it draw the eyes of neighbors and passersby alike. Read More

Are your plants trying to tell you something? With the Parrot Flower Power Plant Sensor, your plants can send notifications straight to your phone when they’re thirsty, hungry, too hot or cold, or if they just need to spend some time in the sun! Do you have a “Green Thumb” when it comes to gardening? Does everything you seem to plant die? Does everything you seem to plant flourish? Whether you’re a pro or don’t know the first thing about gardening but want to get started then the Flower Power Plant Sensor from Parrot is here to save the day and make gardening a heck of a lot easier. This award winning plant sensor sticks into the soil next to your potted or open ground plants, trees or vegetables and monitors the soil moisture, fertilizer, ambient temperature and light intensity to ensure optimum growth and health. These vitals are gathered by the sensors every 15 minutes and streamed to the Flower Power app (free download in Apple App Store) every two hours to allow you to view the data or view in real-time through live mode if near the plant. Additionally the Flower Power can communicate with you through alerts in the event one of your plants needs watering or extra attention. When installing the Flower Power you can choose from over 6,000 different plants, trees or vegetables to ensure the sensor is monitoring the correct vitals for the right plant. It is capable of monitoring several plants at once provided they are in the same pot, planter or small plot of land and have the same exposure to the elements. The Flower Power is compatible with Bluetooth-enabled iOS devices running iOS 6.1 and higher (iPhone 4S and newer, iPad Retina and newer, iPad Mini and newer, and iPod Touch 4th Generation and newer).

A Fully Functional Planter Box Integrates a High-End Speaker

August 28, 2012 Leave a comment

Product Title (In box)

  • 6.5″ dual voice coil injection-molded TCC (talc, Carbon, And Ceramic) filled polypropylene woofer
  • Dual 1″ fluid-cooled tri-laminate Teteron tweeters
  • One-speaker stereo-input mode or two-speaker stereo mode
  • Grill matches the planter box for a natural and realistic look
  • Weatherproof design allows for an outdoor installation and even accommodates live plants

If you find yourself outside in your backyard often and feel that something is missing, it’s more than likely the lack of fresh-tunes in the form of music. From Niles Audio comes the PB6Si PRO, an outdoor all weatherproof speaker and planter box. Niles Audio delivers the mids and lows via the 6.5 inch dual voice injection-molded TCC (talc, carbon, ceramic) filled polypropylene woofer while the dual 1 inch fluid-cooled tri-laminate Teteron tweeters deliver the silky smooth highs. There’s a lot of technical terms here, but just know they are designed to deliver awesome sound. There are two modes which allow for a one-speaker stereo-input mode or two-speaker stereo mode. The grill matches the finish to provide that stone pot/planter look and YES, you can plant real live plants in it. Fill it with roses while enjoying some classical music or fill it with Venus Flytraps and play death metal. The idea here is to enjoy music while being outdoors in your lush backyard without having an unsightly speaker design attempting to blend in to the surroundings. You will probably find yourself outdoors enjoying the Sun more often thanks to music. Being outdoors + Music + Sun = Vitamin D. I see nothing but positive things here. Read More
