Hobbyists, makers and developers looking for an easy way to connect sensors to the Internet and cloud services such as ThingSpeak, io.adafruit, VegeCloud.com and others. May be interested in a new piece of hardware called VegeHub which has been created to make the process of connecting sensors and monitoring data remotely as easy as possible.
Once setup the system is capable of sending text or email alerts to your mailbox, notifying you when you’re plants need watering via a text or tweet, remote monitoring of your soil moisture and temperature as well as monitoring water tank levels for livestock are just a few examples. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the wireless sensor hub created by Vegetronix.
The VegeHub is now available to back via Kickstarter with earlybird pledges available from $49 or £36, features of the VegeHub include :
– Can be setup in minutes.
– FCC/CE Certified WIFI module.
– Works with nearly any analog sensor.
– Long battery life.
– Water tight enclosure.
– Easy to mount and compact.
– Eliminates the need for long cable runs to sensors.
– Secure HTTPS connections using TLS1.2 Encription.
– Will post to regular HTTP connections.
– Configurable URL allows it to post data to any website.
– Posts the device hostname to network scanners, for easy configuration.
“Imagine what you can create, when you can connect nearly any analog sensor to the Internet. A simple light sensor can transform your mailbox, letting you know when your mail has arrived. A VegeHub with a moisture sensor, can let your plants alert you when they are thirsty. Your chickens can tell you when their water tank is empty with a VegeHub combined with a water level sensor. Likewise, a water heater can alert you when it has a leak. “
