Plant Moisture Monitoring and Watering with LED Indicator

Monitor your plants and let them water themselves when they are thirsty. Story Motivation I work in a rather 'sterile' office, that was once a server room with raised floors. After several years working in there, I got tired of no windows, no outside light, and NO GREEN things, and decided to bring in one of my many plants, from home, in an attempt to bring a little 'green' inside. I brought the plant in an ...

IoT Based Electricity Energy Meter using ESP12 and Arduino

We all know about Electricity energy meters which are installed in everyone’s house or offices to measure the electricity consumption. At last of every month, many of us get worried about the high electricity bill and we have to look at the energy meter once in a while. But what if we can monitor our electricity uses from anywhere in the world and get an SMS/E-mail when your energy consumption reaches to a ...

Visibility sensor for divers

Planning a scuba dive will be much easier with the data of visibility sensors on the divespot. Story When you're planning a scuba dive, it's nice to know the visibility of the water at the dive spot. This system will contain a sensor module in the water with a temperature sensor and a visibility sensor. The MKR1000 on the side of the water will send the data wireless to the closest WiFi-hotspot (a diving ce ...

DIY Arduino Weather Station using Nokia Display

Learn to Build Arduino Weather Station using DHT11, Soil Sensor, and Nokia Display In this project tutorial, we are going to make an Arduino weather station using 2 sensors; FC-28 soil moisture sensor to measure the moisture and the DHT22 sensor to measure the temperature, humidity and the heat index. All the measured parameters (with the help of sensors) will be displayed using Nokia 5110 LCD. Before we pr ...

DC Motor Speed Control using GY 521 Gyro/Accelerometer and Arduino

In this article, we are going to control two motors by using the GY-521 accelerometer module. The speed of the motor will increase or decrease upon moving the GY-521 module up or down. On moving the Gy-521 towards the downside, the speed of the first motor will decrease and the speed of the other motor will increase; while on moving the GY-521 towards the upward side, the speed of the second motor will decr ...

Automatic Irrigation System using Arduino

In this project, we are going to build an automatic irrigation system using Arduino which senses the moisture of the soil and opens or closes the valve according to the moisture value. The moisture value and the valve status is shown on the Nokia 5110 LCD display. Before we proceed, let’s take a look at another project – a plant watering system using Arduino, which is very similar to our application. You ma ...
