SPC Automated Watering Kit

SPC Automated Watering Kit is a ease-to-use tool kit for you to develop a smart watering system for plants.

The kit implements two functions. One is to detect environment factors affecting plant growth such as soil moisture, another one is to water plants automatically through the moisture monitoring.

Individual pumps from the water reservoir delivers water over 1 meter (>3 feet) vertically to the plant pots.

Two solar panels supply 12 Volts, 180mA recharge the 12 Volt battery during the daylight and the 12 Volt battery supplies power to the moisture sensor electronics and power to the water pumps.

The digital solar controller can be configured to only supply power to the pumps and electronics for one hour after sunset in order to conserve power.

Parts can be purchased at Synthetic Physical Computing individually for maximum flexibility.
