Soil Sensor

$35.00

The next best garden tool to a shovel, the Soil Sensor is a compact device that you can insert anywhere in your garden or yard.  It will continuously update your Terra with the soil temperature, moisture level and amount of light received.  Wonder if a spot is too sunny or shady for that plant?  Not sure if you need to water today?  Or maybe if the soil is warm enough to start planting in the spring?  Use them wherever you want your plants to thrive, and watch your thumbs turn green!


About Range

Terra comes with bluetooth, wifi and MOTUS antennas built in - the external antennas are to boost range. We’d like to be able to give exact numbers about ranges with and without antennas, but it’s very dependent on where the Terra/sensors/wifi network are, and what physical barriers there are in the environment (trees, house walls, etc).

As a rule, the Terra is built to work out of the box with your wifi network if it’s placed in a yard, garden etc. The bluetooth should also work in an average size yard. The MOTUS antenna has a range of at least .5km, and probably much further with open sky.

That said, if your wifi network is weak, or if you are placing the Terra further away from the house, then the wifi antenna will help. Likewise, the bluetooth antenna allows you to place sensors further away, and also pick up bluetooth-tagged Monarch butterflies at greater distances. Finally, the MOTUS antenna will actually increase your range to that of a professional sensor station, approx 2-10km depending on placement.

Weather Sensor

Weather Sensor

$35.00

Place this half-dollar sized sensor wherever you want to get up to the minute or historic data on temperature, humidity and pressure.  This tiny, weather-proof device will keep careful track of the micro-climates in your yard.  Wondering what specific conditions or trends attract the most birds to your feeder?  Or what the weather was when all those birds migrated overhead?  Or maybe you just want a heads up on the weather before you step outside.  The Weather Sensor is made for you.  Connect to Terra wirelessly via bluetooth.

Water Level Sensor

$35.00

If you have a pond or lake, you know how important it is to keep track of water levels and temperatures.  Cleverly disguised as a rock, the Water Level Sensor will continuously monitor both and let you know if your pond is the right temperature for frogs or if the lake is flooding.  Connects wirelessly to your Terra via bluetooth.
