Drip Irrigation Control System v4.0 – Software

This is a continuation of my previous post on control system v4.0. In that post I wrote about the hardware. Now I will talk about the software. If you have been following my drip irrigation control system design, you know that I switched from Arduino to ESP8266. It took some time for me learn about the new board, but it is very similar to Arduino when it comes to programming it. Previously I used to use Arduino IDE, but lately I switched to Visual Studio Code with Platform IO plugin. This combination is quite powerful. Now I can configure build … Continue reading “Drip Irrigation Control System v4.0 – Software”

Drip Irrigation Control System v4.0 – Hardware

As promised, I started upgrading my drip irrigation control system with v4.0 design and software. If you read my last update on the control system, you know that there are two things that I wanted to add to it. One was a way to access the system via internet, so I don’t need to physically configure it. And the other was to add a humidity sensor. I finally worked on the first upgrade. Now my control system is accessible over the net (currently limited to my home network). However, I had to make a few hardware design changes. I replaced … Continue reading “Drip Irrigation Control System v4.0 – Hardware”
