Any possibility to add :
-soil moisture sensor ?
can be very useful use it with one pump and different solenoid valves to irrigate one or a group of plants, can be very good to set up the moisture sensor to work:
(when the humidity in the soil is less the 35% they activate the solenoid valve and pump until the humidity arrive at 60% =
Is something real for sgc even in the near future?
We made own sensors, measuring the conductivity of the soil. the results where quite bad because the pot can be dry on the top but the bottom part is still wet (https://core-electronics.com.au/sparkfun-soil-moisture-sensor.html). There are senors with a humidity sensor packed in a air stone (https://core-electronics.com.au/soil-temperature-moisture-sensor-sht10.html). This shows quite nice results but the price for the sensor only will end over 200€ for the retail. To expensive. Actually we are looking for a reliable soil sensor....
