A Re-imagination of Smart Planting

Why Hex Pot

Hex Pot is a re-imagination of the traditional flower planting method, and provides a novel approach to smart flower planting. Hex Pot inserts a splash of magic into the flower planting process by our unique ''Sunflower System'', allowing the plant to grow balanced. Hex Pot provides smart plant health monitoring and watering systems. It also allows you to customise your settings through the Hex APP, supporting dozens of different types of plants.

 

''Sunflower system''

Advanced ''Sunflower'' Approach to Planting

Smart solutions are at the core of all that we do at HexFuture. The ''Sunflower System'' is designed to ensure balanced maximum growth of the plant in all directions. Usually, a plant grows faster and larger in the direction of the sun. To prevent imbalanced plant growth, our ''Sunflower System'' measures the light of the effective wavelengths for the plants. It accumulates the sunlight the plant has received in one direction. The system turns the Hex Pot when a certain amount of sunlight is accumulated, allowing the whole plant to have the same sunlight exposure.

HEX APP

Take Care of Your Plant Anywhere in the World

Hex APP provides an easy-to-use GUI, displaying dirt humidity, air temperature & humidity, sunlight intensity, whether the water tank needs to be refilled, etc. Hex APP also shows a real-time plot of dirt humidity. Furthermore, Hex APP lets you select your plant. Depending on the plant selected, Hex pot automatically turns the water pump on at different dirt humidity thresholds.

 

Technical Breakdown

Industrial Standard Components and on-going R&D

  1. Rasberry Pi Zero is the foundation of our IoT solution, providing serial communication and real-time data processing power for our embedded system.

  2. An analogue-to-digital converter is added to take readings from the load cell and the dirt humidity sensor.

  3. The dirt humidity sensor measures the dirt humidity. Having this, the water pump keeps the dirt humidity in a certain range that's comfortable for the plant.

  4. Water pump is used for the smart watering system.

  5. The air temperature & humidity sensor measures the temperature and humidity of the ambient environment, giving out warnings in our APP when the environment is unsuitable for the plant.

  6. The force sensor measures the amount of water in the water tank, reminding you in our APP to add water if there’s not enough.

  7. Our unique ‘Sunflower System’ uses a RGB light sensor to measure the amount of sunlight received by the plant.

  8. A rotational motor is installed as part of the 'Sunflower System'. When the amount of sunlight accumulates to a certain level, the rotational motor turns the pot for 180 degrees, allowing balanced growth of the plant. 

  9. Sensor readings are securely transmitted to a central server via the Internet and are processed appropriately. Secure data transmission is done through MQTT broker, protecting your personal data and privacy.


Those sensors and mechanical parts allow us to add more functionalities in the future. With on-going researches & developments in HexFuture, you can expect more functionalities to come from future updates of Hex APP.

What is needed to get started?

We have prepared a user guide for you. If you have purchased a basic package, you would need to put dirt in the pot and plant your seed. Then, plug in the power supply of the Hex pot. You should also download the Hex App and connect it to your Hex Pot. Select your plant in the App. Afterwards, add water to the water tank and place the Hex pot in a position where there’s direct sunlight onto the spectral light sensor. You are all set! Sit back and watch your plant grow happily!
