In a fast growing world of things connected to the Internet, you will find a lot of projects focused on
making us lazy automation. Well, this is no exception!. The Smart Modular Watering System uses the SparkFun Blynk Board – ESP8266 with the Blynk app to connect to the Internet of Things.
Its main purposes are to water the plants automatically at the right moment and to monitor the level of the water reservoir. It also let users monitor some useful data using the Blynk app like the UV index, current soil moisture, temperature and humidity.
The Blynk app also allow users to change some parameters, like the watering interval, watering duration, some thresholds and more.
With some effort, more features can be added to the watering system, like using the UV sensor data to stop watering the plants at night. More modules can be added too -there is plenty or room for improvement-.
