I have a small balcony and have many pots. I am thinking of having a drip irritation system to water all of them using this and connect the kit to this valve which will be connected to the tap. I am also thinking of having a soil humidity/water tester that will send the data back in order for the valve to open/close. Is this something possible with ST?
I have no background with coding and all i can do is copy paste. But really want to try this out.
The FortrezZ device will show up as a switch in ST when properly set up (a simple jumper setting), so there’s no coding required unless you use custom code like I mentioned above. You’ll then need Spruce’s sensor for the soil. Again, no coding required there either (maybe copy/paste).
What you will need to do is use a SmartApp like CoRE to control the FortrezZ device when the Spruce’s sensor sends a reading below your threshold for moisture levels. I do something similar to monitor humidity levels in my bathrooms and when they get above a certain level CoRE turns on an exhaust fan. Your use case would be similar.
