  • Hi,It kind of works...but..no.I don't manage to make it work after i calibrate the sensor values on dry and on wet.More exact: i emerge the sensor into a glass filled with kitchen paper and water, just to make the paper wet, after 5 min the sensor reads aprox. 600, after that i remove the sensor from the glass, reset the arduino and wait another 5 min and the sensor riding is aprox. 900, then i adjust the values in the code (wetVal=650, dryVal=700) and save the new modifications.1st variant:After this calibration stage i reset the arduino, the sensor is removed from glass (is dry),the servo is at, let's say 12:00 a clock, wait 5 min, sensor val is reading after 5 min 914 and nothing happens with the servo, i insert the sensor into the glass and wait .... and nothingn no movement of the s…

    Hi,It kind of works...but..no.I don't manage to make it work after i calibrate the sensor values on dry and on wet.More exact: i emerge the sensor into a glass filled with kitchen paper and water, just to make the paper wet, after 5 min the sensor reads aprox. 600, after that i remove the sensor from the glass, reset the arduino and wait another 5 min and the sensor riding is aprox. 900, then i adjust the values in the code (wetVal=650, dryVal=700) and save the new modifications.1st variant:After this calibration stage i reset the arduino, the sensor is removed from glass (is dry),the servo is at, let's say 12:00 a clock, wait 5 min, sensor val is reading after 5 min 914 and nothing happens with the servo, i insert the sensor into the glass and wait .... and nothingn no movement of the servo.2nd variant:The sensor is in the glass (is wet), i reset the arduino, after 5 min i have an value on the monitor (i. e. 485) and the servo is changing position from 12 a clock to 9 a clock, i remove the sensor from the glass and the servo is moving to 3 a clock, and from there nothing... no mater how much i wait servo doesn't move to simulate the stop watering process which i think is to fallow.Can you advice what is to do?I am doing something wrong?Thank you

  • Hi,I am very fresh in this field and i have an favor to ask : can i have the code for 6 sensors and 6 servos?Don't get me wrong, this is a very practical example that keeps my motivated to start learning coding especially that my wife is pushing me to water the tomato's in our conservatory.I have bought a book to start (learning coding for dummies) but i need also a practical application, and i have found it but i want to compare the codes to make my own conclusion. I hope this makes sense.Thank you in advance.
