Oakland, Calif.-based Edyn started selling a new, smart gardening device this week: an Internet-connected water valve that lets users irrigate their gardens or lawns automatically.

If a user wants, they can adjust their irrigation systems via the Edyn smartphone app.

Sold for $69, the Edyn Water Valve weighs less than eight ounces, is solar-powered, Wi-Fi-enabled and fits a standard garden hose.

Recently, Edyn CEO and founder Jason Arumburu showed TechCrunch how the new water valve works at the STEM Kitchen & Garden, maintained by Farmscape urban agriculture, in San Francisco.

Its products are sold at Home Depot stores, and the company will soon be adding new brick-and-mortar retailers, Arumburu said.
