    Fido, the temperature alarm that sends text messages

    Is your greenhouse getting frosty? How about too hot today? Is your fridge still on? Fido is a temperature alarm that will send you text messages that you can build for around $100. Solder together the Arduino based model or snap together the Raspberry Pi based model.

    Electronic Flame Weeder System

    Electronic Flame Weeder System

    This tool is used to allow remote control of a tractor mounted flame weeder. The arduino measures the temperature at the burner, and when no flame is detected sends an ignition spark to the burner. Both the arduino and the solenoid valve are operated by an on/off switch from a 12 volt power supply. The operator turns the burners on at the beginning of the row, and then off at the end of the row. If the wind blows out the flame, the arduino notices this temperature change, and sends a spark to the burner and reignites the propane.

    FarmBot

    FarmBot

    FarmBot is humanity's open-source automated precision farming machine. Similar to a 3D printer or CNC router, FarmBot uses an XYZ computer controlled gantry system to precisely position and use any tool or sensor applicable to growing plants such as seed injectors, watering nozzles, pH sensors, moisture meters, etc. Visit http://go.farmbot.it for more information and please use our forum and wiki for questions and feedback.

    Greenhouse controller

    Greenhouse controller

    This is the first stage of a collaborative build of greenhouse controller. The primary purpose of this controller is to operate two motors for roll-up sides through a relay box that was built during a workshop hosted by the CAPE in Quebec. The secondary purpose is to operate a heating system with the powerswitch tail available from adafruit.

    Open Irrigation Controller System

    Open Irrigation Controller System

    The goal of this project is to create a wireless and networked irrigation control system for greenhouses. The end goal is to provide a user-interface (UI) from which a farmer could see a map of their nodes, monitor their sensor readings, actuate valves in real-time, develop a schedule, and implement logic in response to sensor readings.

    Arduino soil moisture data logger for extended remote usage

    Arduino soil moisture data logger for extended remote usage

    This is a simple soil moisture data logger using an Arduino Uno with a power-controller circuit to regulate connection between a battery pack and the Arduino. It has a battery life of months and is suited for remote data collection.

    Temperature Data Logger

    Temperature Data Logger

    This is a very basic temperature data logger built off of an Arduino microcontroller. This will be the basis for expanded projects around measuring and logging temperature
