About This Project
I’ve used an Arduino YUN and the new IoT platform Cayenne for monitoring the quantity and the quality of light.
I’ve a friend that grows up chiles. He talk me about the importance of temperature, light and soil Ph. An important aspect of cultivation is the quality of light. The quality, like the composition of colors waves. I’ve created an IoT app that analyse the component of light. This project analyse the singles colours of light. One sensor for RED, one for GREEN and one for BLUE. That sensor print the value on the cluod, and my friend can read this values with her smartphone anytime, and anywhere. This is possible by using Cayenne IoT. Cayenne is a awesome platform that allows the creation of IoT projects like this. See the official site on http://www.cayenne-mydevices.com.
