Irrigation Motor Control and Monitoring system

Controlling and monitoring the pump which is used to irrigate the agricultural land.

Irrigation motor control and monitoring. we are using a Bolt IoT device in this project and soil moisture sensor, this project is used to sense or measure the moisture content in the soil. the soil moisture sensor is a sensor which varies the value when it contacts the moisture. basically it is a resistor that works on moisture condition. when the moisture is more then the value of resistance will decrease and when the moisture is less then the resistance value is more. Information from the sensors of the motor is regularly updated through Twilio is a cloud communications platform as a service (CPaaS) allows software developers to programmatically make and receive phone calls, send and receive text messages, and perform other communication functions using its web service APIs.


Irrigation motor control and monitoring system using Bolt IOT is used tor irrigate the land where the soil is in dry condition and when the land is irrigated properly the motor shuts down automatically. This happens with the help of soil moisture senor.

firstly the threshold values are fixed for drought condition up to max value that is fully dry agricultural land. Then the land conditions is continuously monitored whether it may be wet or dry by soil moisture sensor and the data is send to the Bolt Cloud, Based on the API keys and all the details of file the details are displayed and run on Ubuntu server and also it requests SMS request to twilio cloud service.”
