Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PS Works just fine-no issues
A bit expensive, but works just fine! I have the Edyn Garden sensor for about one month and going to buy the second one. It seems to be very solidly built, the reading of temperature, soil moisture as well as humidity are correct and consistent. Picks WiFi signal better than some other WiFi garden devices (Orbit b-hyve irrigation timers for example). I would recommend to use the bigger print for the manual, as well as to provide more information about Edyn Garden sensor functionalities (like nutrition read out). However I do not see though any reason for low rating.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tymmac Great help in the garden!
This is a great device for getting strong, healthy plants. Paired with the water valve, you can "almost" set it and forget it as far as putting your plants in the ground and just waiting to harvest. I still have to weed, pick suckers off the tomato plants, etc. but once you get your soil to the right nutrition values and the watering correct, it makes it so easy to grow your own produce!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lapoljo Great product, with great support
I'm now into my second season using my Edyn. Bought in as part of Kick Starter program and have been delighted that I did.
The Sensor does what it is supposed to do. Reads my soil's moisture, nutrients, humidity and light levels reliably.
Had some early problems/questions. Support has always been quick and responsive.
I think some of my issues were due to a weak WiFi signal all the way back in my garden. Finally downloaded a WiFi Analyzer App on my phone and verified this, and installed a WiFi Extender in the house. Issues solved! As a bonus, I have a much stronger signal for streaming and other smart devices.
Love the fact that I can check on my garden using my phone no matter where I am and that the APP information and interface keeps getting better and better.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jobu Well worth the investment
As a beginning gardener I've always wondered if my plants were getting what they needed. The Edyn really helps me with this. I love it so much I need to get the water valve to pair up with the drip irrigation I just installed.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JazFan Not Worth Box It Came In
Not worth the box it came in. I live in Florida and the Garden Sensor has been charging on my terrace in the sun now for one week. Does not work. Waste of money.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GardenMan Cool and useful gadget!
I have been using this device for a while -- in my garden in the summer and in a potted plant in the winter! I love being able to monitor conditions with my IPhone from anywhere in the world. The App keeps getting better and better. I recently planted seeds, and utilized the database to track germination and growth of the vegetables that I planted, to know what to expect for those plants, predicted harvest, etc., but knowing when to water and fertilize is critical to success, and it does that for me! I love this!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by suekfromnj Customer support is terrific
I got this as a gift, so I can't speak to value. Also, be aware that you must have one of the more recent iphones -- mine was a 4 and it wouldn't work (I upgraded to a 5S and it now works fine.) I went back and forth with customer service by email before the problem of my antiquated phone was revealed. Until then, my emails -- all 6 of them -- were answered promptly and helpfully. Moreover, when they told me my phone was too old, they told me to just return the device, despite the fact that I had had it for months. Edyn does what it says. It would be helpful to have a pH meter as well and to be able to move it around for instant reads, which might work somewhat but is not recommended. Overall, however, my verdict is "cool."

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by VeggieMite Cool sounding but pointless gadget
We are living in a day and age where anyone *thinks* they can 3D print something and call it an invention or come up with a useless mobile app idea. Edyn seems like a combination of the two. Fundamentally, my experience with it was like bringing home something I saw at a school science fair. The device can measure some basic stuff, but gadgets and sensors that can do that have been out there for ages. Edyn doesn't even do that part as good as other cheaper sensors available out there do.
Besides that, the gimmicky "feature" that the associated app can tell you when and how much to water etc. based on your location and plants ALWAYS gave me the wrong recommendations. How can recommendations for both indoor and outdoor areas and different plants always be basically the same?
I am glad I was able to get a refund from the retailer.
