When we say “Farm automatic” or “smart agriculture”, soil status monitoring& irrigation is the most basic for a farm. A farm soil status monitoring& irrigation need the following features:
1. Soil status monitoring at multiple points. The soil status, basically humidity and temperature, need to be monitored at multiple points depends on the farm characteristic &plant needs.
2. Irrigating at multiple points, or some other actuators such as fans, to control/ adjust the environment, including humidity/ temperature, of multiple points.
3. Easy to Install. In a farm, as the environment moisture and potential insects& mouses, it is hard to install wires. So remote wireless monitoring& controlling are needed, that the sensors/irrigating can be installed easily.
This Kit is based on ESP32 and Lora. The ESP32 3.5 inch display is the console for the system, it receives the Lora message from Lora moisture sensors (support up to 8 sensors in our default firmware) , and send control commands to Lora 4-chnanel MOSFET(2 4-channel MOSFET supported, with totally 8 channels), to control the connected valves open/close, and thus to control the irrigation for multiple points.
To create a local soil monitor and thus to control irrigation, this kit features:
Based on ESP32, with Wifi connection, the console can also access to internet, the create much more applications including the moisture data updating to internet for remote monitor, and remote control with MQTT.
