We wanted to make a IoT project and we think making an IoT Greenhouse is a good start.
What it does
It takes care of plants by measuring its temperature, moisture, and humidity. Based on these data collected, it will turn on a fan or a water pump to reduce the temperature, moisture, or humidity. It also puts these values into a chart and a professional looking UI. Through the UI, the user can also control the water pump and fan by clicking control buttons. The user will also be able to share the statistics to their Twitter.
How I built it
Used Arduino, Raspberry Pi, and 3D printing.
Challenges I ran into
Bad internet, non-working parts/broken parts, and some 3d printing problems.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Getting everything done except the pump function (might work later) and we learned many new skills.
What I learned
Node-red and IoT
What's next for IoT Greenhouse
Get the water pump working and use Alexa for voice control.
