You can build your own IoT garden using Adafruit IO and WipperSnapper.

This can help you keep track of your plants by logging data such as the temperature and humidity.

Our sensor node features a batch of Stemma breakouts that keeps track of the air quality and humidity of the soil.

All of the electronics are housed in a 3D printed enclosure that is also water resistant.



This project is powered by the QT Py ESP32-S2 running WipperSnapper, Adafruit’s no-code solution to IOT Projects.

Just stick this in the soil to monitor how wet or dry it is and log that data in a custom dashboard.

With WipperSnapper you can create a beautiful dashboard with gauges and charts so you can visually monitor the health of your garden.

 

 

Setting up your Stemma sensors is really simple and easy with WipperSnapper’s built in support for I2C devices.

All of the breakouts are daisy chained together making this a solder-free project.

It’s free to get started just head over to io.adafruit.com.
