I always wanted to bulid a project that can control many nodes for Green house Irrigation System, but never found the right solution. The Wio Node is suitable for my project.
Wio Node is designed to simplify your IoT development, aims to make it easy to develop Internet of Things products and services. It is an ESP8266 based open-source Wi-Fi development board to create IoT applications by virtualizing plug-n-play modules to RESTful APIs with mobile APPs.
Compared to Wio Link, It’s more small and cheaper. This product is suitable for application in the scenario requires a large number of sensors collecting data or somewhere is only need simple wireless input output.
In this project, I connected a Grove – Moisture Sensor to Wio Node to measure the soil moisture as well as Grove – Relay to control a pump. I will run a Universal Windows Platform(UWP) app on Raspberry Pi3 to view the sensor values and control the pumps remotely.”
