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.

And one more thing: don’t forget that Wise Orchard is on SALE now, only until July 14! (50% OFF). It’s a unique opportunity to grab your first one or install more in other zones in your garden.

Tips for watering your vegetable garden

Aubergine Scorpio

Gardeners have watering habits that vary widely they may leave their plants to sit dry until they are almost withering or they might pamper the plants by drowning them in too much water. Either of these extremes goes on to stress the plant and the weak ones are usually the first ones to fall prey to diseases and bugs. This results in fewer vegetables and blooms being produced.

Watering might look simple but in essence, it’s not. It takes finesse to actually water your plants properly.  When it comes to vegetables, they are usually quite demanding.

To cut down your water usage where water conservation is concerned, consider the following tips:

Whenever you add compost to your type of soil, you reduce your plant’s need for frequent watering. Studies done have established that when you increase organic matter by 5%, this quadruples the soil’s capacity to hold water.

Using mulch is also another way to reduce the need for water because evaporation is reduced. This helps in cooling the soil or warming it depending on the mulch type used. Mulch has been known to reduce your plants’ water needs by about 50% and in the event that you’re not sure what to use, consider straw. The reason for this is because as it breaks down, it adds organic matter to your soil type so consider using a thick layer that is about 1-3 inches.

Using irrigation is the preferred option and here is where you should consider using the Wise Orchard smart water valve because it not only conserves water, but it also gives your plants exactly what they need without causing unnecessary stress. Knowing how much your garden needs and ensuring that moisture is retained while also distributing water in your garden effectively is another amazing use of the Wise Orchard smart water valve.

Decide to get one for yourself today and your garden will thank you!
