The Internet of Things revolution is upon us, and it’s forever altered the ways in which we build and interact with technology. Now, anyone with a curious mind and a modest budget can build everything from home automation systems to full-fledged robots and an almost limitless number of other awesome gadgets in the comfort of their own home.
This new DIY electronics revolution has ushered in a series of exciting platforms and kits that help both novice and veteran engineers bring their creative visions to life—from small sensor kits that can be used as the final touch for a project, to complete robotics kits that can be used to build a talking and walking cyborg from scratch.
In fact, the only downside to the DIY electronics craze that has swept the Earth is that it can be difficult to choose which project to work on next. But if you’re a botany fan, or even happen to have a few plants around the house, look no further than this Arduino Automatic Smart Plant Watering Kit 2.0, which automatically keeps up to four plants perfectly hydrated at all times.
And for a limited time, you can start hydrating your favorite plants for just $69.
Ideal for first-time tinkerers and more established engineers alike, this kit utilizes the power of Arduino—an incredibly powerful and versatile open-source electronics platform with limitless possibilities and renowned functionality.
Complete with a pump, soil moisture sensors, water switch, and other essential components, this kit allows you to keep up to four plants perfectly hydrated at all times, thanks to a water-delivery mechanism that can sense when your plants need water and deliver the exact amount that’s lacking from the soil.
This kit comes with comprehensive and easy-to-follow instructions that walk you through every aspect of the assembly process, and once you’re done all you have to do is power-up the board and upload the Arduino program in order to have it start monitoring the moisture levels in each of your plants.
You’ll be able to eliminate the need for messy jumpers and breadboards, and the accompanying board is surprisingly easy to program—even if you’ve never written a line of code before in your life.
Your order comes with four Crowtail soil moisture sensors, and integrated Arduino Leonardo board, a power adapter, and everything else you need to ensure that your plants get the right amount of water whether you’re home or away, and there’s a single switch that can be used to power the apparatus on or off.
Embrace the DIY electronics revolution and keep your plants perfectly hydrated at the same time with the Arduino Automatic Smart Plant Watering Kit 2.0 for just $69.
