Introduction: Build an IoT Plant Monitoring System With MicroBit and Grove WiFi Module
IoT-based Smart Farming improves the entire Agriculture system by monitoring the field in real-time. Come join me in this tutorial to learn how to keep track of your plant soil moisture with the use of the MicroBit and Grove WiFi Module, from anywhere in the world! 💦🌱
Step 1: Connection
By following the diagram above:
- Connect the grove wifi module to P15 and P16
- Connect the analog pin (A0) of soil moisture sensor to P1
Step 2: Code
Step 3: Data Logging and Monitoring Using ThingSpeak
Step 4: Project Complete
Upon completing the project successfully, the reading value of the sensor should appear in your channel at ThingSpeak.
Note: The dryer the soil, the higher the reading value.
