Solar Powered Internet Connected Lawn Sprinkler Project


Solar Powered Internet Connected Lawn Sprinkler Project.

I’ve been looking for an excuse to do a little project with Adafruit’s Feather HUZZAH board and MicroPython. As an engineer who graduated some years ago, having a Wi-Fi enabled micro-controller which runs (Micro) Python 3 and costs less than $20 is really amazing.

My initial plan was to use this automatic lawn sprinkler to be a rodent deterrent to keep rabbits and squirrels out of my lawn, but I have also used it to keep flower beds and newly planted trees hydrated. It can also be used to prank your friends. In any case, those are just excuses, I really wanted to tinker with electronics and Python.
