In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months. This is when many of us take a hard look at what worked and what did not, complete performance reviews, and formulate plans for the coming year.

Koubachi Wi-Fi Plant Sensor hits Apple Retail Stores in Europe

ZURICH, November 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Right in time for the Holiday Season, the Koubachi  Wi-Fi Plant Sensor Outdoor will be available in the Apple Retail Stores throughout Europe.  Only six months after launching its product, the Swiss startup Koubachi achieves a further milestone and makes its entry into offline retail with the flagship brand Apple.

Since its launch in March 2012, the Koubachi Wi-Fi Plant Sensor provides plants with a voice and gives plant owners a green thumb. Recognized and reviewed by key tech publications and media around the globe such as TechCrunch (US), T3 (UK), BBC (UK), The Huffington Post (US), Macworld (Australia), NZZ (CH), the Koubachi Wi-Fi Plant Sensor was previously available online - either through Koubachi's own webshop or authorized online resellers.

"We are thrilled to enter offline retailing with Apple," states Philipp Bolliger, CEO and Co-founder of Koubachi and adds: "It's always been our goal to get the Koubachi Wi-Fi Plant Sensor into Apple's Retail Stores and we are very proud to achieve it within only six months after launching the product."

Apple will add the new outdoor version of the Koubachi Wi-Fi Plant Sensor to its product range, and will include it in all of its European Apple Retail Stores. IPx4 certified, the new Koubachi Wi-Fi Plant Sensor Outdoor is fully rainproof making it the ideal device for every passionate gardener.

"Apple is certainly a partner of choice for any offline distribution strategy in consumer electronics, in particular for a Start-up company like Koubachi." says David Kurmann, Head of Marketing & Sales of Koubachi and explains: "We are very happy to launch the product with Apple right in time for Christmas being convinced that it makes a great gift."

The Wi-Fi Plant Sensor measures soil moisture, light intensity and temperature. Using the built-in Wi-Fi module, the data is sent to the Koubachi cloud, where it is analyzed by the Koubachi Plant Care Engine based on scientific plant care models developed in cooperation with biologists. Through the free iPhone App or Web App ( the plant owner receives tailored advice on when and how to care for his plants. Koubachi notifies the plant owner through push notifications (iPhone App) or email (Web App) regarding the five key care parameters for every plant:

  • Watering
  • Fertilizing
  • Misting
  • Temperature
  • Light

The Koubachi Wi-Fi Plant Sensor is available as an Indoor and Outdoor version. A particular emphasis in the development of the product has been put on the design. In April 2012, the Koubachi Wi-Fi Plant Sensor has been awarded the internationally well-known red dot design award.
