This IoT project tutorial describes how to build an IoT project that monitors plant health status. We want to check some environment parameters like temperature, humidity and light intensity that have effects on the plant. Moreover, we want to retrieve the soil moisture.
The image below shows the project at work:
In the first part of this IoT project tutorial, we will explore how to use sensors to collect environment information using Arduino and how to send this information to the cloud.
In the second part of IoT project tutorial, we will explore how to enable triggers on the sensor values stored and send alert to user smartphone when some parameter value is out of the range.
