Abstract

This project is a self-sustaining greenhouse that monitors temperature, humidity, soil moisture, and water level. The temperature is constantly monitored and controlled through a temperature/humidity sensor that will turn fans on/off when the temperature rises too high. Temperature, humidity, soil moisture, and water level are all displayed on a monitor for convenience. Since the greenhouse is an indoor greenhouse, the monitored values should remain consistent; however, alarms will sound if control limits are triggered. Control levels can be easily changed for different plant needs. Water-level must be restored manually when the level drops below a user-defined set point
