H2O IQ

We designed an in-garden device to live by your plants. It is solar-powered, with a moisture sensor, connection to a drip irrigation system, and XBee. Soil moisture readings are sent to a Pi. The Pi is a webserver. You can view your plants' statuses in a graph and compare to their ideal moisture. You can set up automatic watering, or a one-time watering for today. Your instructions are sent to the garden devices. They use internal servos to control flow through the drip irrigation system.
