Simple soil humidity sensor
Simple soil humidity sensor

How many times have you watered your plants and feared you’re overdoing it? With the simple soil humidity sensor, those worries are a thing of the past! This two-part sensor is straightforward to use. The two exposed prongs go into the soil and send the humidity information to the sensor via the connected wire.

PIR Movement sensor board with easyC
PIR Movement sensor board with easyC

A PIR (passive infrared) motion sensor is a device that detects physical movement within its field of vision by sensing changes in infrared radiation. This sensor works on the principle of detecting thermal thermal signals emitted by objects, mostly warm-blooded creatures like humans. The “passive” in the name refers to the fact that the sensor itself does not emit or radiate any energy for detection.

 

When it detects motion, the sensor sends a digital signal to the microcontroller. The angle that the sensor “sees” is 100 degrees and reaches up to 5 meters. It is often used in a variety of applications, including home security systems, automatic lighting, and energy management, among others.

 

Our breakout board simplifies the use of the PIR sensor by using easyC technology, making it easily connectable with microcontrollers or other circuits.

Capacitive soil sensor
Capacitive soil sensor

How many times have you watered your plants and feared you overdid it? With the capacitive soil sensor, those worries are a thing of the past!

 

 

Most cheap soil sensors work on the resistance principle, where there are two prongs and the sensor measures the conductivity between them. They work fine at first, but eventually begin to oxidize due to the exposed metal. Even if they are gold plated! Due to oxidation, the resistance goes up and up, so you have to constantly recalibrate your code. Also, resistance measurements do not always work in loose soil.

 

 

This design with capacitive measurement is superior. Capacitive measurements use only one prong, have no exposed metal, and do not introduce direct current into your plants.
