I'm quite new in the Arduino space. But I've bought the Rural Hack Kit and the Arduino Uno Starter Kit. And I'm having quite some fun
However. Now I've just started exploring the Rural Hack Kit and especially the I2C Soil Moisture Sensor.
I've just followed the basics in this tutorial from hackster.io.
I just copied the code and the included the required library.
The reading I get is:
Soil Moisture Capacitance: 65535, Temperature: -0.10, Light:
And the readings are the same whether the sensor is in soil, open air or any place.
So I guess something is wrong.
If try to rearrange anything in my setup the reading don't come in at all. So something seems right. The measurements are just thrown off.
The hackster example is with the MKR1200 board. And I use the Arduino Uno board. Could this be making any difference?
And how do you translate the Capitance measurement to moisture in percentage (given the reading is correct)?
