This project was created as part of the Internet of Things Coding and Hardware Design Bootcamp at CNM Ingenuity. The system is built around a Particle Argon microcontroller and coded in C++ using Visual Studio Code.
This system constantly monitors the conditions of a potted plant. These conditions include dust particles, air quality, temperature, humidity, air pressure, and soil moisture. The readings are displayed live on this Adafruit dashboard.
When the soil becomes too dry, a mini water pump will automatically water the plant. The watering system can also be triggered manually using the online Adafruit dashboard.
