  1. Plant Watering with Arduino - Part 2

    13 Jan 2013

    Tim commented on my recent blog post about my automated plant watering system and asked if I could go into some more detail about the steps I went though to set up the software side of the project. The project used cube and cubism to make live charts of my chilli plant’s moisture levels available over the Internet. In this post I will go though a step-by-step guide explaining how I set up the software that powered these charts. I’ve tried to write the article for readers with no previous experience of server administration or software development, but I have thrown it together faily quickly, so if anything below is unclear, then do post a comment below and I will try to fix it.

  2. Remote Controlled Thermostat with Arduino

    28 Apr 2012

    I was out on a walk on a cold day and thought it would be great to be able to remotely turn on the heating in time for when I got back home, which led to this; my first Arduino project. The remote control is achieved over the Internet and the form is web based, so could equally be controlled via any mobile phone with a web browser.
