Wireless Soil Moisture Sensor

We got a 3d printed enclosure for our soil moisture sensor thanks to Vikram Rastogi who runs Hacklabs.in  (co-located at Nasscom COE-IOT). This was our first experience with 3d printing and we are happy with the outcome.

The 3d enclosure has two parts. The top part can be screwed on/off the longer bottom part.

The moisture sensor is connected to a WiSense WSN1120L sub-GHz wireless node through 4 wires (2 for power and 2 for the I2C bus).

In the pic below, you can see the soil moisture sensor connected to the WSN1120L mounted inside another weather proof enclosure.

Here’s a close-up of the 3d printed enclosure.

Here’s a pic showing  the sensor in action outside Nasscom COE-IOT in Bangalore. The soil moisture data is being  sent (every  5 minutes) to our data collection/visualization application “WiSight” running  on AWS.

Here is a  snapshot of the sensor data from WiSight.
