Build a Raspberry Pi Moisture Sensor to Monitor Your Plants

*** NOTE: ControlMyPi shutting down ***

Here's a snippet from a detailed tutorial I've written for Tuts+

 ....You will be able to monitor the sensor locally on the LCD or remotely, via ControlMyPi.com, and receive daily emails if the moisture drops below a specified level.

Along the way I will:

  • wire up and read a value from an analog sensor over SPI using a breadboard
  • format the sensor reading nicely in the console
  • display the sensor reading on an RGB LCD display
  • have the Raspberry Pi send an email with the sensor reading
  • easily monitor the sensor and some historic readings on the web
