Soil Moisture Sensor

Automatically optimized irrigation with the Soil Moisture Sensor
Automatic water-saving irrigation
If the soil moisture is sufficient, your Water Control will not start at all - so you save water and still have beautiful and healthy plants. Together with a GARDENA Water Control, the Soil Moisture Sensor can control the irrigation automatically depending on the soil moisture.
Whether it's a flower bed, lawn or even plant pots: thanks to its small and compact size and the five-metre long connection cable, the Soil Moisture Sensor can be placed almost anywhere in the garden. Thanks to its low height and flat top, the sensor can even be installed in lawns without disturbing the mowing process.
You can set the switching point of the sensor on the connected Water Control. The measured soil moisture is shown on the display in the form of water drops. If your products are connected to the GARDENA Bluetooth App, you can view the settings and display there.
Secure and reliable operation
Low battery power is indicated on both the Water Control and the LED in the battery compartment. This allows you to replace the battery in time and ensures continued reliable operation.
Easy to use
The five-metre long connection cable allows flexible connection of the Soil Moisture Sensor and can be added to with an extension cable as required.
Proven reliable measuring principle
The soil sensor measures the soil moisture according to a proven electrothermal measuring principle. The metal tip, which is enclosed in felt, heats up and calculates the degree of soil moisture based on the cooling time—reliably and accurately.
|Energy supply||2 x AA 1.5 V (LR6, not included), approx. 1 year of operation|
