Introduction: DIY Automated Watering System

About: Awesome Electronics Tutorials, Projects and How To´s

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!

Step 1: Watch the Video!

Make sure to watch the video since it will give you pretty much all the information you need to create your own automated watering system. During the next steps though, I will present you some additional information.

Step 2: Order Your Components!

Step 3: Build Your Watering System!

Here you can find lots of pictures of my finished build as well as the schematic. Feel free to use it to create your own system.

Step 4: Program the LoRa Board!

Here you can find the code for the LoRa board. Make sure to edit it and upload it to your board.

Step 5: Success!

You did it! You just created your own automated watering system!
