Automatic irrigation with rotating watering can

Not just watering: this watering machine really turns to the plants. The small watering can is turned by a servo and, if necessary, moves to the positions of the potted plants around it in order to then water them.

The water crane measures whether there is a need with a capacitive soil moisture sensor in each pot. This prevents both drought and flooding in the planter. The watering can also shows information on the moisture and water level of the storage container hidden in the base on an LC display.

The buttons for programming and the display even give the allotment gardener a face.

The allotment gardener is taught the positions of the individual pots with the help of two buttons. On the back of the jug there is a temperature / humidity sensor, a clock module and a small amplifier with loudspeaker that can be used to output acoustic warning signals. Two LiPo battery cells supply the control electronics, which are invisibly housed inside the waterer, with energy.

On the back there is a temperature sensor underneath.

The Automatic Watering System from Keyestudio is supplied as a kit that contains all individual parts including screws and the corresponding screwdriver. No soldering iron is required for assembly, as all electronic parts are simply connected with plug-in cables. The laser-cut plywood housing is also simply plugged together.

The extensive kit does not require any additional tools.

The small water crane costs about 58 euros and is included AliExpress available. There is also a video there showing the assembly shows.
