first of all: I am new to this forum so I am very sorry if i don´t follow any conventions or stuff with this post.
So let´s get started with the actual question. I plan to begin a small arguino garden project. Basically with two functions : switch on/off a lamp and pump water into the pots. The garden/pots themselves won´t become that huge. Maybe 50cm x 20cm (app.).
I don´t really know how i can start that project cause I am pretty strong with coding in Java but I am very new to all this electrical stuff. That´s a little confusing to me cause I don´t really know how to controll a few sensor without putting millions of wires into the arduino.
It´d be very cool if you can give me some advices of how to start the easiest way. (maybe without reading tons of books) I found some cool tutorials also but I don´t feel very sure about the electrical part.
Hope you´re not too bored now :P
