Raspberry Pi Plant Watering

This project uses a Raspberry Pi Zero, solenoid valve, relay HAT and a resistive moisture sensor to build a Raspberry Pi watering system. There is also a camera to allow the Pi to record a time lapse video of plant growth!

The code from the video can be downloaded below,

Please note that on October 30th 2021, a new version of Raspberry Pi OS was released known as "Bullseye". This has new camera drivers that are not compatible with the Python camera code linked below and included in this video, or indeed any Python camera code written by anybody before November 2021! If you are running the version of Raspberry Pi OS known as "Buster", or an earlier version, things should work just fine. I discuss the matter in depth in this video.
