Am a newbie in arduino and I want to use arduino to power my irrigation farm with the following function.
Arduino with soil moisture sensor check. once the soil is dry, arduino to switch on the electric 1horse power pumping
machine and at the same time open the solenoid valve to irrigate at a specified timing.
As per powering the pumping machine, arduino should check if there is public electricity supply before switching on the
pump and if there is no public power supply then it should switch on the power generating set to power the pumping machine
and solenoid valve.
After the sensor has confirmed that the soil is wet and moist, then arduino stops the pumping machine and then closes the
electric 220v solenoid valve.
Overhead Mist Sprayer (uses a different AC 1horse power pump)
A sensor to check when the sun temperature is 35 or 40 degrees or any programmed temperature and switch on the pumping
machine to power the sprayer for a specified timing. Also arduino should should check if there is public electricity supply
before switching on the pump and if there is no public power supply then it should switch on the power generating set to
power the pumping machine.
Also irrigation records of time and dates and other function will be added up in the setup.
I like to know the hardwares l will need for this project, a guide and codes. I appreciate this .
