Plant Care With IOT

The COVID-19 epidemic brought with it a new habit - house plants!
the loneliness of lockdown brought people to find a link with nature using house plants.
Such as many others, we started to grow plants too, to make our house a more pleasant to stay in it for a long time.
Our project is meant to make house plant caring a lot more easy and efficient, with the combination of CPX, Inegromat and Blynk.
We deal with four scenarios:
1. First Scenario: a push notification is sent to your smartphone if the temperature around the plant isn’t optimal for them. You can choose how many times a day you want to be notified on this concern.(Step 3)
2. Second Scenario: You can set a watering schedule on google calendar and to be notified from the CPX whenever it’s a watering day.(Step 4)
3. Third Scenario: Lighting is very important for plants to grow, the lighting level measured around the plant will always be displayed on the Blynk app.(Step 5)
4. Fourth Scenario: Each plant thrives in different humidity level. For example, plants that are originated in the tropical areas require high levels of humidity and cactuses require low levels of humidity. Using a weather web site, the CPX is updated once a day with the humidity level expected for this day. The daily humidity level will be displayed on the CPX on demand.(Step 6)
