Also me: Switch to Linux and a couple of month later struggle to get mac OS to run in a VM in order to... build an iOS app

Hi fediverse, do you know of any smart plant/soil monitors that have open-enough software that I could query them (via wifi? bluetooth? something else?) from a bunch of shell scripts?
