Wise Orchard API is now public

Over time, some of you have asked about integrations and API access and a few weeks ago we gave you early access. Now, we are excited to finally release a public API with full documentation that will allow you to control your valve using your own software instead of our app. This opens up a lot of new possibilities for those of you that have smart homes and like tinkering with IoT devices and their software.

There are three main use cases for you to be using this API:

  • Control and automate your Wise Orchard valves directly with your own custom-built software, instead of using our app.
  • Integrate Wise Orchard valves with third-party IoT services like IFTTT, smart home appliances and smart assistants, so that you can control Wise Orchard through them.
  • Use Wise Orchard to control your own purpose-built watering devices (hydroponics, remote agricultural valves, you name it). Contact us for more information if you want to do this.

We can’t wait to see what you come up with! Please let us know what you build with our API.

For API-related inquiries you can contact us here: [email protected]
For updates on the API you can join our API & integrations mailing list here.

Landscape Irrigation Guide

In areas of lower rainfall, many homes have irrigation systems installed to supplement insufficient precipitation levels. The benefits of having an irrigation system for your landscape go much further than simply providing water to your lawn and plants.

Professional Installation versus DIY

Installing your own irrigation system can be a big project to tackle, but some homeowners do opt to do it themselves. If you’re not the DIY type keep a few things in mind when hiring a sprinkler/irrigation company to complete the work.

When looking for a professional contractor look for one that:

Saving Plants from Overwatering or Underwatering

Plants need three basic things to grow: sunlight, water, and nutrients. When any of those components is out of balance growth will negatively be affected, and the plant will suffer. A common problem many homeowners face is making sure their plants are watered correctly. Water is an important component in many processes that occur within the plant, but both overwatering and underwatering can cause big problems.

Problems with Overwatering or Underwatering

Plants need water for many of the biological processes that occur within their cells. Much of this water is taken in through the roots from the soil.  

Overwatering is a problem because it starves the roots of much-needed oxygen.

Open space between soil particles is occupied by both water and air. When there is too much water applied to the soil it pushes air out of this free space, completely filling it with water instead. In essence, the plant’s roots can’t “breathe” and drown.

Underwatering slows down, or may even completely stop, photosynthesis, a process where water and carbon dioxide product glucose within the leaves of the plant.

How to Tell if Plants are Overwatered or Underwatered

The big challenge is that symptoms of incorrectly watering your plants are similar whether you’re giving them too much water, or not providing enough. You have to look closely at the plant and the soil to determine which condition is the cause of the symptoms being exhibited.

Fertilizers for your garden

Life would be much simpler if you could just plant some vegetables in the garden in a sunny spot, and then all you had to do was make sure they are watered regularly. FertilizingAfter all that’s all it should take to grow plants and reap a successful bounty, right? In theory it would be really nice for all of us if growing a garden was that simple but unfortunately it’s not. In order to make the food they need for cellular growth plants are constantly feeding on nutrients available in the soil. Over time, they can deplete these reserves making it necessary to add plant “food” to grow strong, healthy plants. Thankfully it’s easy to purchase commercial fertilizers that we can apply to restock the nutrient reserves and keep plants healthy.
