What would I do if I took this project forward and why? What would you do differently?
Syncing the code to the local time zone and also to the desired time of the day the user wants to check his plant. The system could be augmented by a moisture sensor too, in case the plant needs water in between the day.
I was envisioning a proximity sensor which would trigger when the user waves at the plant(like saying 'Hii' to the plant). The current PIR sensor gives me very sporadic values.
I would plan to power my particle board with a stand-alone PV cell battery.
I would add a melody to the speaker (maybe a better speaker).
Spiral the LEDs around the plants to add aesthetic value to the plant.
Some cost constraint is that the user has to buy the perfume in particular intervals
Is this a good/useful/informative piece of content to include in the project? Have your say!
