Purchased this product as they had come down in price substantially since the launch date. This device is a small sensor that you can either use indoors or outdoors. It looks nice and blends into the plant excellently, very unobtrusive. It comes with a AAA battery which apparently gives 8 months of use. Firstly you have to put the sensor into the soil near the plant you wish to monitor. Then you download the free app from the relevent app store and sync it with your sensor - very easy to do. Next you have to select what plant it is you wish the sensor to monitor. This is where it gets a little difficult.... if you have thrown away the labels from your plants and have no idea what they are called then you will have problems! However if you log onto the parot flower power web site you can search for plants much easier than you can do in the app, by selecting filters according to the shape and colour of your plant etc. It took me about an hour to find the plant i wished to monitor - only problem then is that there are littrally hundreds of sub-breeds of the plant you have selected! I just went for the plant that looked the most similar to mine. Once you have told the app what plant you wish to monitor it then advises you to check back in 24hrs to see its anaylasis. However within 15mins the sensor was already reporting on the sunlight, water moisture and temprature of the soil - this was good.Read more ›

I've been looking at this gadget for 1+ years, and being already a happy user of Parrot's wonderful bluetooth headphones (Zik), I was hoping for similarly high quality. Unfortunately, so far everything that Parrot put into the hardware design, is zeroed by a very raw app that suffers from textbook design problems. Imagine that the app is written by an undergraduate student as a summer assignment... that's what you get, really.

E.g. the 'garden' section shows only 4 plants per screen, with their names written in a font so large that most of the names are cut off. And that – despite having a limit on the number of characters in every plant's name, already. Or take the section listing your devices... this section for some reason does not show the photos of your associated plants, but rather shows an icon "add plant" (even when it knows that the device is currently associated with a specific plant). Hit this "add plant" icon, and you're entering a menu that doesn't even allow you any "cancel" option. The only way to go back without re-assigning your plant is to actually completely re-start the app, etc. etc. etc.

I hope that the team at Parrot either finally hires a full-time UI/UX developer with experience to take care of the app, or at least sells this product to a more enthusiastic company to take better care of the currently installed user base.

PS the light sensor also seems to be unable to recognise the special-purpose red/blue light that we use in the office to give light to our office plants: the "live" settings didn't even change when I turned the spotlights on. I was about to go to the official forum of Parrot to raise all of these issues, but guess what... boasting about 62K+ copies of Flower Power sold, the company does not even have a forum for its users there. What a shame, really.

Having had several failed attempts to grow a Venus Fly Trap I decided to get the Parrot Flower Power to advise me on what I've been doing wrong.
It failed miserably and in 1 week and my plant died of sun burn!

I got in touch with the support desk who relayed messages between me and the development team. The answer I got was... "The temperature and light alerts are sent after a specific average of data. A 40° heat for 10 minutes during the day wouldn't average enough to send an alert. Especially when any data is offset by 10 minutes where it may now be cooler."

I replied saying that "If the device records temperatures exceeding the limits for several hours then there is still an issue somewhere." I gave them an exact example of where my plant had been subjected to a temperature of above 35° for over 5 hours!

The development team finally acknowledged my point and said they would look into future improvements.
***Currently the software analyses 7 days of data and only then sends an alert. If an intermittent event occurs no alert is sent.***

They said that I should keep an eye on the software updates release notes for any news.

FAIL!

Geeky fascination in the info it sends to your phone, would be better if it didn't take a whole day to update ie if it took less time to analyse the light, soil moisture, fertiliser status & temperature every time you move the probe to a different plant

I am using my Parrot Flower for a month now. I am very satisfied with the accuracy of the monitoring process and the responsiveness to any action taken (based on the monitoring and warning process).
The design is also quite beautiful and blends well with the environment. I consider the battery life so far as good-very good (but i am using it only for a month).
The flower database in the software has a wide variety of flowers and plants and the ability to be updated by the user.

A couple of disadvantages are: a) the bluetooth connection that it uses to send me the monitoring reports, means that I (or my phone) has to be close to the Parrot in order to receive the reports. That means no reporting over wifi, so no monitoring while you are away on vacation or short business trips. b) if you have an area with multiple plants, you will need multiple devices to monitor them since you specialize reports in one plant/tree/flower per device (it certainly could have reports per family of plants/trees/flowers per device).
