- Raspberry Pi 3 Model B
Flower Care sensor
Looks and feels very nice:
Be aware that there are two versions of the sensor – Chinese and international. I saw complains on internet about chinese sensor that were bricked after software upgrade when used outside of China. It is not quite clear what exactly was bricked – mobile phone app or the sensor itself.
