The AL-KO Smart Garden: Our Mission to keep your garden looking fabulous

Sophisticated and intelligent solutions that will make tending to your garden a breeze.

Having your own garden is for many people an indicator of quality of life, since it provides a retreat away from the stress of everyday life. Gardening brings a lot of joy to many, especially when it's made more and more effortless through the use of intelligent solutions. This is precisely the vision embodied by our Smart Garden concept – to maintain your garden in all of its splendour whilst preserving the joy of gardening itself and eliminating unnecessary effort. Right from the beginning, we have developed our gardening tools with a high degree of care, creativity and technical perfectionism, making sure to anticipate the needs of users ahead of time. Now, with the AL-KO Smart Garden, we are going a step further, combining our sophisticated gardening tools with intelligent, wide-reaching solutions for keeping your garden looking its best.

With the AL-KO inTOUCH Smart Garden app and our Smart Cloud, for example, you can optimise tasks, automate routines to suit your preferences, manage devices such as the Robolinho® W from anywhere, and get useful information relating to your devices and your garden. This saves not only effort and resources, but also your valuable time. In the following pages we will go through exactly how it works. For keeping your garden at its best, there's no smarter solution.

Smart Gardening | AL-KO Robolinho  share feature

The Robolinho® "share" feature*

The Robolinho® W also has a "share" feature, either for when you're going on holiday and want to share it with family or a neighbour or if you need it serviced.

Smart Gardening | Integration


Using the If This Then That (IFTTT) service, you can easily connect your appliance to other devices and services and automate and control them. And this even works for multiple different services – for example: Synchronise your Robolinho®'s activities with a range of different IFTTT services, e.g. the weather service (do not mow the lawn during a storm), an irrigation service (only mow when the lawn isn't being watered) or even sensors such as cameras or presence detectors (do not mow if there's someone on the patio). Or follow what your Robolinho® is doing using your online calendar.

Updates: Keeping your appliance fresh*

With our software updates, you can keep your Robolinho® W up to date at all times and benefit from new and improved features.

Smart Gardening | Security

Security fit for the future

You can rest assured that the transfer of data between the Robolinho® W, the AL-KO inTOUCH Smart Garden app and the AL-KO Smart Cloud is absolutely secure and is compliant with the most stringent statutory data protection standards. All data transfer is in encrypted form, and the cloud data is hosted in Europe. None of the AL-KO gardening tools has a camera or microphone, so your privacy at home is secure and protected.
