  • But when they started to invent the tool that was needed for their problem,  their life was not as smooth as they thought.
  • Inventing the tool also took much time as it needed to be perfect under any type of condition.
  • After working for a year, they finally completed to invention of the tool, named the water automation system.
  • This can run on any internet platform, from anywhere, anytime, using a website or mobile app that they invented.
  • This device can serve the watering needs from small balconies to large gardens.

Know Complete Details of The Innovative App Based Device

The backend story for getting this idea is when Deepika and Santosh were at their home, deepika went to their parent’s home due to pregnancy, but Santosh was at home all by himself at that time she used to tell Santhosh to water the plants.

But Santhosh used to forget about them. When she came back home, she saw the wilted plants that was the first time they faced an issue like this.

So, they got an idea to find a solution as we have already seen info about it in the above section. Now, know about the product details below.

  • They started to work on this idea in April 2022. They finally came with a complete product prototype, by September 2022. The name of the product is a” Wi-Fi Drip Controller”.
  • After several months of testing, they finally have the complete product now.
  • The main moto of this product is to reduce water wastage and water the plants when you are not at home.
  • The model of the product consists of an internet-connected tap to conserve energy and operates on alkaline batteries, and they provided an app and website.

  • Even customers can switch on or off easily through the app, at any location.
  • And this device is made with custom needs as every house is not same and they dont have the same needs.

For example, if you want to water the plants on the balcony they provide you with a water tank-based system that helps to store water and use it.
