Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer does not work
I have 4 of these and all but one has had the same moisture reading for months.....even on the watering days. The one sensor that has a changed in readings is suspect. The moisture readings change does not corelate to thr watering schedule. Junk - save your money.

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 2.0 out of 5.0 by SoilMoistureMonitorGuy A bit disappointing
The Edyn Garden Sensor was easy to set up and uses a really cool patterned modulation of your smartphone screen to communicate with a light sensor on the underside of the device during pairing. However, the device and software leave lots of room to improve. My unit did not properly sense soil moisture content; I am currently processing a swap, hopefully for a unit that works. Also, the choice of crops is quite limited. For instance there are only about four or five rather obscure tomato breeds, and none of the more common ones. Last, the software seemed confused about planting time and method. I indicated I had planted Garlic, but the choice I had for method were either from seed or from starter plant - what does one choose when planting from cloves? I tried both, and entered last November as the planting date, but in both instances it told me that my garlic would sprout soon, when in fact it was already quite mature and nearly ready for harvest, so the sense of seasonal timing in my growing zone seems rather far off. Aside from that, it's pretty cool to see the graphs of sunlight, moisture (if it worked), and "nutrition" (actually just electrical conductivity) versus time, and I hope the replacement unit will function properly and provide a more satisfying soil moisture data. Then, maybe I'll buy the irrigation controller.

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 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 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!
