In this project I will be showing you how to create an automated watering system. My system is made for my greenhouse, but you can use the general principle for pretty much everything and everywhere. The system uses LoRa for remote communication, so that I can water my plants even when I am on vacation. But there is also a push button to water the plants manually. The mains ingredients for my system are a big water barrel, a solenoid valve, a water level sensor and a long garden hose ;-) Let’s get started!
