Boxy - Wifi plant watering sensor system
Meet Boxy, a plant watering sensor system with a very basic enclosure design, a rectangular box.
Your plant watering sensors need a central hub to receive the messages and notify you when the soil moisture level of a plant is too low.
Boxy runs on a Raspberry Pi Zero W and uses Node-Red to process incoming events and drive the display.
Boxy has its own website that you can access with your pc, mobile phone or tablet.
On the website you can configure the network settings and soil moisture notification levels, and manage your plantmeters.
Boxy uses Text-To-Speech to notify you in a natural voice.
This is a unique feature!
