Hi all, I just purchased an AC open sprinkler and looking for guidance.
I am looking to create a fail proof setting for irrigating. One that will read the soil sensor data and irrigate that zone for 30 sec when the Water Content is below 20% threshold. If there is no flow, it will also notify me as well. I have 4 wireless soil sensors to function on 2 zones. 2 sensors per zone.
I have the cloud based data from http://api.sigrow.com/
Here’s the kicker… I’m a total newbie with programming and can learn with guidance.
Anyone want to take me on to help in my project while I learn what needs to be done?
PS: You could ofc try to modify the firmware, but for that you’d have to read into it first. For that I can recommend opening the firmware in PlatformIO and CTRL-clicking terms of interest to reveal their definitions or flat out searching for terms like MQTT, HTTP or STATE. Node-Red is the beginner friendly way, but it also has many pitfalls! Nevertheless there are many people who solved similar nodered problems on the internet, compared to OS-compile-problems.
