I am from Sweden and thinks this looks great. We have just bought a small farm as our summer house and I need to add the possibility to irrigate from a distance.
On the farm there are three sources of water and the sensors would be spread out over a large area. In short I would need one wireless extender per water source and probably 3-5 more for the sensoring and as another 2-5 to control where the water is flowing.
As the sensors and valves are spread out each would almost have a single task, e.g. one wireless extender per watersource, 1-2 moistsensors or one valve to direct the water to the correct area.
My question is if it is possible to use e.g. esp32 dev kits as wireless extenders and hook them up to a Rapsberry Pi with the SGS2 software?
I understand from the documentation that it is possible to have a sensor on one wireless extender controlling a valve on a second wireless extender. Is that correct?
As I live in Sweden I would like to investigate the possibilities of the system before investing in the hardware.
Yes, you can use wireless extenders to extend the reach of your AP. You could use esp32 devices as extenders, but you would be better off using commercial devices as to extend the reach of your main AP.
ESP32 development kits will not work as SGS2 Wireless ESP32 Extenders.
Yes, you can have a sensor on one wireless extender control a device on another. That's by design.
I have got most of the smart garden setup but can not get the server to come up the module remi is missing and when I try to access the py with its ip address with 8001 port it states access refused. am I missing something or is it a lot. Please and thank you for any help.
I have finally got the sd card with the software onit from switchdoc labs and put it into the pi 4 but to my surprise it has not got the wifi running and hooking it up to the router was a waste of time. I have ssh running but down't know how to use it yet. can someone please help me?
I have the software with wifi working but know a new problem with the Wireless SGS2 Control Board. It only displays Smart Garden and nothing else. I am guiessing that maybe the main program is currupt and needs to be compiled and uploaded to the Wireless SGS2 Control Board. I have it connected to my pc through arduino ide but compiling is a bit comfusing. not sure where do find all the library files for the compiler to work with out errors. I need advise on this matter. Thank you.
