It does have a water level alert system and the LED is fully time-able, so by some standards it is basic. But that isn’t the point of this beauty, it is aiming at a niche market, perhaps those who want to try hydroponics for the first time, but mainly it’s for those who want to have a desktop system or just an interesting and useful talking point that is small enough to be used anywhere.
