As an electronics enthusiast, you will have certainly seen at least a few examples by now of how Arduino can be used for home automation and adding convenience to various parts of daily life. Well, now you can also get involved in the fun of automated Arduino systems with DFRobot’s fantastic little EcoDuino Automatic Plant Watering Kit, which is designed to be a beginner-friendly Electronics Kit that monitors the moisture levels of the soil and activates a pump to provide much needed hydration to your plants.

The EcoDuino kit is comprised of a DFRobot branded “EcoDuino” Controller Board, which has a powerful Atmega32U4 Microcontroller that acts as the brains of the operation, reading the sensor and activating the pump to keep your garden healthy. It is completely Arduino compatible, meaning you can use all the same Arduino IDE libraries and hardware as standard Arduino projects, and comes pre-installed with everything you need to get up and running with your personal automated garden.

Note that you may have to connect with the EcoDuino via a PC to manage some of the finer details relating to desired moisture levels and scheduling.

Additional Note: The image used above is currently out of date. We are in the process of updating this, but for now, please note that the kit only includes 1 female to bare wire adapter cable, as well as no adapter connection on the water pump.
