Arduino Smart Plant Watering Kit

The Smart Watering Kit provide you with your own smart plant monitoring system with ease of use and unlimited options! The kit includes pump, soil moisture sensors, water switch to redirect the water to up to 4 plants, and pipes for the water to go through.
When you power the board after uploading the Arduino program; using the 4 soil moisture sensors to determine the soil level in the plant, the board will send a command to the switch to open a specific channel for the specific plant that needs water currently (up to 4 plants at once).
Afterwards, the board will send a command to turn on the pump and suck water into the switch, the switch will separate the stream and will give just enough water for your plants. It will then close the pump and the switch and continue to check when your plant needs water. It is possible to make it even smarter with a light sensor, so for example; the plant will not be watered at night or; if you add a rain sensor, it will not water the plants if it's raining. The smart watering kit is based on Crowduino Smart pump shield which is included within the kit.
The Smart Pump Shield is a brand new one-of-a-kind shield that allows you to build projects with ease and eliminate the need for jumpers, breadboards, mess and complexity. The smart pump shield, originally developed for smart watering kits, allows you to connect multiple sensors, including humidity sensor, light sensor, rain sensor and soil moiusture sensors. It provides 5 relays that can be controlled separately by pins or by integrating the interfaces. 4 relays can control 4 channels water switch directly and the 5th relay can control a pump, all by Crowduino interfaces for ease of use and less complexity. The board also provides 12V input that split between the board and the arduino, providing the arduino 5V input, that eliminates the need of another separated power adapters.
The shield can be used for various projects including but not limited to smart watering system, smart home, vending and drinking machine, cocktail mixer and so on.

Features

  • Eliminates the need of messy jumpers and breadboards, connect all sensors and modules with ease!
  • Control the relays both with Crowduino interfaces and with normal ones, the board is not limited to Crowduino only
  • Power the board with single 12V power supply, no need separate power supply for the arduino
  • 6 interfaces for sensors, one interface for water switch and one interface for motor or pump
  • on-board power switch to control the power
