Hello, Does anyone know a reliable zwave enabled soil moisture sensor that's available? Am looking for a finished product like the Fibaro or Aeotec sensors. I want to be able to water the garden after considering - 1. Input from the weather plugins like yahoo etc for time of expected rain. So that i can decide when to water. 2. A soil moisture reading to determine if any watering is needed, if so then how much. Regards Ishan
