WiFi Automatic Plant Feeder With Reservoir – Indoor / Outdoor Cultivation Setting

Step 2: Using the landscape pipe

We took 1/4 "outer diameter landscaping hose we had and It ran from our reservoir pump to each of the plants, with a drip nozzle set on each plant. You can set the water supply but you want (drip, spray nozzle, ring etc.). [19659013] Add tip

Step 3: Turn off the tube

To shut off the water seal, just add a stopper to the end of the landscape pipe.

Step 4: How Smart Reservoir Works

This is our reservoir that we made with a 5 gallon bucket , an Adosia aut omatic feed reservoir kit and a little 3M 90 contact adhesive to glue the pump to the bottom of the bucket.

We drilled a 1/2 "hole about half way from the bottom for our warning (horizontal) water level sensor. We plan to attach a warning to this level switch so we know when the water gets low.

We also drilled a 3 / 8 "and 1/4" holes near the top of the bucket so that the pump and the lower water level The sensor's switch and tubes can leave the container. The lower (vertical) water level switch is located on top of the pump (so built) and we use this switch to announce us when the water is empty and to protect the pump from drying.

Step 5: Attach the cabinet to the bucket

To attach the cabinet to the bucket, we use some double-sided Velcro straps, which is where we will mount the Adosia WiFi control unit. We also added a 2-sided adhesive drill hook inside the casing for r that the board should attach, just scale the glue from the top piece and paste on board.

Step 6: Attach the handlebar


Step 7 : Measurement of the landscape pipe

To measure the landscape pipe, first determine where you want your plants to be, then drive the length to where you want your reservoir to be stored. There are two things to consider when doing this step.

The longer the landscape planning tube is, the harder the pump must work to allow the water to flow to each drip nozzle. Two, make sure the container is stored in a way so that the 3/8 "straight pipe is away from the sunlight to prevent algae from growing inside the tubes.

When your location and pipe length are fixed, only cut the excess landscaping hose with a scissors

Step 8: Connect the clear 3/8 "hose and 1/4" Landscaping Tubing

Insert the 1/4 "outer diameter black landscape hose into the 1/4" inner diameter tubing (3/8 "outer diameter tube). This clear tube must be kept out of the light – it is worth considering using a black tube for all hoses that will be exposed to light (to limit algae growth).

Step 9: Connect the wires to the board

The picture above shows where each wiring must be connected to WiFi card. At the top left (yellow wires) is the lower (vertical) water level switch. One to the right is the warning (horizontal) water level switch. The one in the left (red / black wire) is the water pump, and the one on the right on board is the analogue soil moisture sensor.

Step 10: Insert the soil moisture sensor

Insert the soil moisture sensor in the last pot make sure the water pressure reaches each plant, including the last pot. We will now check on the Adosia platform to make sure it works properly.

Step 11: Check the Adosia platform to make sure the humidity sensor works

Step 12: Calibrate the soil moisture sensor

To calibrate the soil sensor, first get it to a certain dry medium for a few minutes. This gives us our absolute dry values ​​and is more accurate than dry air. Let it sit for 1-2 minutes.

Then take the sensor back into the last pot and dry it with water. This gives us our absolute moist readings in the ground, and is more accurate than a full water reading. Let it sit for 1-2 minutes.

Step 13: Check the calibration

After checking the device, we have updated 7-day high and low values, so let us specify them to calibrate the minimum and maximum working ranges of our humidity sensor.

Step 14: Reading the profile

Let's now double click on the profile. This is the setting of the water pump. We originally had our pump setting to trigger for 300 seconds (5 minutes) so that we could adjust our drip nozzles to achieve the desired water flow. Now we lower our trigger time for the pump to occur in just 2 minutes for each trigger.

Step 15: Reading the profile cont.

Here is the setting of the vertical water level switch that protects the pump and represents water that is empty.

Step 16: Read the profile cont.

Here is the setting of the horizontal water level sensor switch that we will use to warn us that the water is low.

Step 17: Read the profile cont.

Here is the setting for the soil moisture sensor. Here we put it to water when the moisture level drops to 7. We try to water so that we reach at least level 9 when it is watered and will trigger the pump to water up to 3 times when trying to reach the current moisture level. 19659013] Add tip

Step 18: Safe profile work

As you can see Boo Boo (the device we calibrate)

Step 19: Add water to the container

Step 20: Seal the container

We seal the lid and rotate the container so that the clear tube faces the back (and now out of the light).

Step 21: Test the container

Since the WiFi card starts to water on the ground moisture, we can see that every drip nozzle actually get the exact amount of water for each plant. Which means that the personal cultivation installation works.
