Moisture Sensor for the GoPiGo & GrovePi System. The Moisture Sensor allows you to measure water levels in things like soil or other porous materials. Great for use in a plant monitoring station with the GrovePi.
Please Note. This product uses a Grove Sensor Connector, and requires a compatible Grove Board for use on the Raspberry Pi.
Please Note. This package includes the Sensor & Grove Cable Only. Mounting hardware & Servo Package for use on the GoPiGo is sold separately.
The Grove Moisture Sensor can be used to detect the moisture of soil, to judge if there is dampness around the sensor. It can be used to decide if the plants in a garden need watering. It can be used in gardens to automate watering plants. It can be used very easily by just inserting the sensor into the soil and reading the output using ADC.
NOTE: This sensor is not hardened against contamination or exposure of the control circuitry to water and may be prone to electrolytic corrosion across the probes.
