Building a smart IoT flowerpot from scratch #IoT #CircuitPython #PyPortal @JEGamboaFuentes
This project is a cute IoT flowerpot that helps you tracking the basic measures needed to take care of your favorite plants such as water, moisture, and temperature levels. You can see the measures directly on the device or on the online dashboards. This DYI project is an interesting way to showcase how we can easily make such a cool project with a 3D printer and low budget but more importantly, they are amazing learning paths for future IoT innovators. This project is powered by CircuitPython code and you might just need to edit simple parameters to make this project work.
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.
