Things used in this project

Hardware components

Photon
Particle Photon
×1
SparkFun hygrometer
this is a soil moisture sensor... I used 4.
×4
General Purpose Transistor NPN
General Purpose Transistor NPN
these are used to provide 5v to the soil moisture sensors and to the relays. the photon only has 3.3v output.
