With hydroponic cultivation we mean a different method of plant growth, in fact instead of the earth there is water with dissolved mineral salts that flows between the roots. In this project we will see how a hydroponic greenhouse controlled by an ESP8266 was built.
The system consists of pumps and temperature sensors controlled by a NodeMCU with ESP8266. The microcontroller is connected to an I/O port expander which in turn is connected to a 16 relay module in order to activate devices that operate at mains voltages. There are also 2 1.3 “OLED displays and an RTC module for exact time keeping.
