Are you looking for ways to make watering your plants easier and more efficient? Why not use the Raspberry Pi to automate the process? This guide will show you how to set up a system that waters your plants automatically using the power of technology.
In this guide, I address all nature enthusiasts who scatter plants around their homes or gardens and dream of never forgetting to water them.
So, how can you achieve this?
Well, it’s possible with a good old Raspberry Pi and the Python script Watering!
Once this script is set up on a Raspberry Pi, it allows you to control an irrigation system, the plans for which are also provided on GitHub. You can even control everything through a web interface.
You will need a Raspberry Pi Zero W, a centrifugal pump, magnetic valves, relay modules, a humidity sensor, a 5V power supply, and a few other components specified in these open plans to build your own automated irrigation system.
It’s not more complicated than that. Once it’s set up, you must control your system via the PHP interface accessible from the other side of the world (or from your living room).
