Wise Orchard available for pre-order

0808Dear fans, we have very good news today: the Wise Orchard smart water valve is now available for pre-order. Our first batch will very soon be ready to ship out and we’re really excited!

These last 2-3 months have been really intense to get the hardware manufactured but our efforts have paid off. We’re at the moment working on improving the software so that it will be fully functional by the time we start shipping. The most important features regarding controlling and monitoring irrigation as well as weather-dependent watering schedule adjustment will be there, and we will be including additional features afterwards.

Your feedback, that of our beta-testers and our first customers, will help us constantly improve to make exactly the product that you want. Thank you for your support.

We’re almost there

Hi everyone! Sorry for the long time without updates from us. Over the past few months we’ve discovered how hard it can be to start manufacturing a new product. We have been really busy trying to get everything right.

Fortunately, we are making good progress and we can now provide much more accurate estimates on availability: some units will ship to beta-testers mid-May, and we expect to be able to deliver to everyone else in late June. Pre-orders will start some time in June.

And yes, that sexy image you can see in this post is Wise Orchard’s final look. A vast majority of those of you who filled in our poll preferred a less flashy colour than green for the enclosure, and we agree. Grey is inconspicuous and a good option to make sure the only green that shines in your garden is that of your favorite plants!

Thank you all for your support and suggestions, we are counting on you.

Sorry for taking so long to post this update, we’ve been busy on all fronts! There have been some more delays but we’re confident Wise Orchard will be available this spring. We’ve ironed out a few outstanding issues and improved some features. We’re now, finally, about to start manufacturing and we’re working hard on the client-facing software as well.

As you all know, we’ve been testing a few prototypes for a few months already and we feel that the time has come to let you all participate in this. Do you want to become a Wise Orchard beta tester? click here to fill in our survey and you’ll have the chance to help us, trying it for free!
