Automatic watering system

Automatic watering system

It's a simple aplication to watering flowers at home.

The code is written to an Arduino Uno microcontroller :)

How to use install, and use it? It's simple!

You need the Arduino software from here: https://www.arduino.cc/en/Main/Software and an USB cable.

Just follow these 6 steps:

  1. Step: Download wateringsystem.ino (in "files" downloadable) to Aurdino UNO board.

  1. The arduino needs to know the correct time, so go to https://www.epochconverter.com/ and copy 10 digits number, go back to Arduino software, open serial monitor and type "T" and copy your number as "T1545609600".

  1. Step: You need to have a relay for the arduino!

Just like on the picture:

The ralay will control the valve, what is watering the plants.

Choose the watering time for your plants:

pin6 PM 16:10-PM 16:40 pin7 PM 17:10-PM 17:40 pin8 PM 18:10-PM 18:40 pin9 PM 19:20-PM 19:40 pin10 AM 10:20-AM 10:40

  1. Connect the cables just like on the picture:

You can use a transistor insted of the relay!

  1. Step: join the water valve to the water system of the house or to the 3D printed water tank.

  2. Step: enjoy your automatic watering system!! :))

What costs this system? Not to much...

Hope you enjoyed making this project!! :)
