MudPi – Automated Garden System With the Raspberry Pi #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi #OpenSource
Great project sent in from Eric. The MudPi website will take you through all the steps for setting up and maintaining this smart garden system.
Grow the produce you love with less water, time and effort
A scalable smart garden system that allows you to maintain controls, monitor conditions, and sustainably manage resources of your garden.
MudPi is made to install on top of your existing irrigation. This way you’re not locked to any specific method or vendor. The main controller unit is capable of regulating water with pumps or controlled valves. It follows schedules and parameters you specify such as desired soil moisture can control when to water your plants. Sensors are polled periodically for recent values that can be stored. You get notifications of garden conditions and alerts of anything important.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
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.
