A 3D printed soil monitoring and watering system #Adafruit #FromTheForums @Adafruit
From the Adafruit forums comes a project by jim_lee which uses a 3D housing and a glass jar to build a soil moisture and watering node. A display can be viewed outside the case, making the insides water resistant.
A pump can be activated to water plants if it senses the soil is too dry via a STEMMA I2C soil sensor.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
