The reason behind the creation of the smart irrigation system is to address the issue of over watering plants and to remove the possibility of forgetting about watering your plants entirely. The smart irrigation system that I will be implementing removes the need to water your plants by hand. The accompanying app will also show you just how much water your plants have, and the system will also let you know when your water storage levels are running low.

By using a plethora of sensors, the system can automatically keep a watch over your favourite plants/crops and display the details directly to your phone whilst you’re out and about living your life. The smart irrigation system uses a raspberry pi to control all these sensors and has the power to trigger the self-watering system to that you never have to. The system uses three solenoid valves which are connected to smart relays that in turn activate when the soil samples become a dry undesirable condition for the plants.
