Hello, I'm working on building a plant watering system, and I have sensors for temperature, light, and soil moisture that I need to connect to my Arduino, which requires about 5 feet of wire between the two. Right now I have a series of jumper cables stuck together to achieve this length. Is it possible to use a serial cable for a compact wire solution, sending 5V, grounds, and analog signals? Not using any serial functions on the Arduino, just using the cable and wiring for sensors.
I appreciate any feedback and any suggestions on alternate solutions. Thank you!
