The Smart Wi-Fi Soil-Moisture Sensor is a novel smart-home device for your home-garden, which keeps your plants healthy and let you control their moisture level from anywhere around the world.
The sensor sends you the status of the plant soil over Wi-Fi network. It's possible also to add it to existing SmartHome environment with standard protocols. You do not need to install any expensive IoT system to use it.
You need only Wi-Fi, your mobile phone or PC to use it.
The gadget is especially useful for remote control of the plant moisture for:
Rechargeable Battery: The device has the rechargeable battery and allows up to 1000 messages and up to more then 1 year of the operation time per one charge. The charging is done via the standard micro-USB interface with a standard mobile phone charger. Pro: You do not need to buy the batteries or change them with expensive alkaline or LiPo batteries anymore.
Setup: Easy install of the device over the Wi-Fi using any smartphone or PC. No need on the App installation. Easy Wi-Fi interface. All data is kept on your phone only
The gadget uses standard 2.4GHt Wi-Fi protocol and delivers measurement data over:
Data visualization: user can see measurement graphs or get a messages using ThingSpeak Apps or Telegram as well as with customer solutions via HTTP or MQTT. See more info in the user guide.
User scenarios: HTTP, MQTT and ThingSpeak interfaces let realize new use scenarios with measurement results
Long life questions:
Galvanization and corrosion: The sensor using resistive measurement method, which usually have an corrosion issues, but the measurement tine is very short, what exclude this problem in practical use
Moisture protection: The device is protected from the external moisture with few protection levels
Sensor foot exchange: the sensor foot can be beaked out after the long use and exchanged with a new one in case of destroying
Cybersecurity: The sensor is not visible in the network the biggest part of time and it’s very difficult to discover it for hackers. It does not send the password directly. We still recommend to break and destroy the chip in the sensor before utilization to avoid the possible data leakage on the hardware level
Scalability: the gadget can be integrated in other systems via available protocols (MQTT, HTTP, TS), there are many third part services which can scale this system (check SmartHAB for example). One can use 3rd part watering and lighting systems supporting these protocols. The device can use our Smart Clock2.0 as a message system for local messages.
