The WaterMe app for IOS is an app that allows its user to connect to custom-made moisture sensors placed in plants via Bluetooth Low-Energy and alerts him or her when their plants need to be watered. The user can specify the limits of moisture values in the plant using the app.
Many people unintentionally kill their plants because they neglect to water them. The idea of this app was to create an easy way to remind the user to water his or her plants. We were inspired to create this app because we live in a high desert environment where water conservation is important. Our target user is anyone who has a busy lifestyle and is conscientious about water saving techniques.
My teammate and I are most excited about creating an app which is cost-effective and allows for customization.
