The moisture sensors will not last for long. I will use SDI-12 but they are expensive.
$50?
Good
the negative comments are beginning to worry me. Can the sensors provided be replaced/substituted with better/more accurate ones. I haven't been given a delivery date yet. Is it possible to decline after a drop has finished?
Edster
I've been following a build on credit where these sensors are used, they are cheap to replace I think he said $5-$15 for a 3 pack also another poster showed his own sensor that would supposedly last indefinitely.

There's part 1 and 2 of the guide if you want to skim through.
If this kit uses the DHT 11 Temperature and Humidity sensor I do not recommend using it for growing. I have attempted to use a similar kit for some plant growing and the DHT 11 sensor is not accurate enough for a grower looking for tight temperature readings. https://learn.adafruit.com/dht/overview

FWIW the DHT22 is a lot more accurate (from what I've read) and is only marginally more expensive than the 11.
Made my order a few days ago but after reading these comments I have decided to cancel it. I would really like this product but I'm not going to wait half a year for it.

Fuck i guess I learned my first lesson on massdrop
Got the product looking for a piece of hose. Diameter of pomp is 8mm inside. Diameter for the flow meter is 6mm bit strange.
Saradtor
Same. Trying to get connectors and reducers, pain. :(
This looks like a great Christmas gift! Now, after reading the comments, I'm getting concerned.
Just came in today, and surprise surprise, wrong product....
It took close to a year from purchase to delivery for this drop. I am very upset about this and hope that it's not a new trend for Massdrop.
This is obviously meant to grow the Devil's lettuce, you degenerates!
When will I ever get my last massdrop of this product? It's been over 6 months now and I still haven't received my product.
Anybody have any success using something like this for their herb garden?
Tanios
Herb garden, or "herb" garden?
So package deliver opend by custom´s of course but everything included! BUT i installed the Demo an couldn´t get it to work the screen doens´t light up im using a Arduino R2 could that be the problem? (2 pins are missing on each site but the revision changelog sayd they just for Mesuring the voltage by a shield!) or did i get an defectiv kit?
Hey guys, anyone here from Finland who happened to join this drop last time it was online? Massdrop fucked up and I got your package sitting here on my table..

spending time and effort to correct someone else's mistake is a big deal.. Im definite such wholesome gestures return back to those who care to do them in the first place.

Yeah exactly, this can happen to anyone but it's a potential problem when you ship overseas. @aurochs_angels did you get anything in the meantime?
The guide isn't in clear English and not all necessary parts are included. Can I get a set by step guide for assembly?
All of the orders have been shipped and are now on the way to you! Once tracking is available, you will receive a confirmation email with tracking information. Please allow 24-48 hours for this information to update in the courier’s system.

I have recieved a package from someone for this drop at my doorstep, package was intended for Finland. Now I have submitted a ticket, but I am very worried about the whereabouts of my actual package!
Bulk order shipped! The vendor informed us that the group's order was picked up and is on its way to our warehouse in New Jersey. Based on the tracking provided, the order is scheduled to arrive on 11/7.
Expect another update from us on 11/8 or sooner if something comes up.
If you have any questions, please visit our Help Center (https://massdrop.com/helpcenter).
Awaiting confirmation! We are still in contact with the vendor and just awaiting updated shipment estimates from them. We have a call scheduled first thing tomorrow morning and should get a bit more visibility in regards to when we can expect these in our warehouse.
Expect another update from us on 10/27 or sooner if something comes up.
If you have any questions, please visit our Help Center (https://massdrop.com/helpcenter).
Thanks again for joining this drop! We have submitted the group's order with the vendor for the Seeed Grove Smart Plant Care Kit for Arduino and they are working hard to prepare it for shipment.
As soon as the group's order is ready at the vendor's location, they will send the bulk shipment to our warehouse in New Jersey where our warehouse team will break it up into individual orders and ship them. The current estimated ship date from our warehouse is 11/4.
We will keep the group updated throughout the fulfillment process. You can expect an update from us by the end of the day Pacific Time on 10/25.

I think solenoid valve to control water is practical solution rather than using water pump system. We can connect valve to tap directly and then on/ off based on the conditions.
I don't own an arduino, but will buy one for this drop. Is there a minimum arduino that we should buy to make sure this works? I was looking at the arduino 101

I want one for universal use in the future, this will just be a project. Not going to have a dedicated arduino attached to this for the rest of eternity. I want to use the arduino for other projects as well.
swirle13
i would expect it to work, just a real time clock, soil moisture, and a motor libraries. I wouldnt expect those to be incompatible. :-) worst case, you modify the libraries to work, or find arduino 101 libraries to work.
What does this need as a brain? I haven't looked at this stuff in ages - would this work with an Arduino Uno? Or is there a newer Arduino that I'd need?
stiligFox
It works with the Ardunio or an Arduino compatible board. The base shield fits into the Arduino Uno R3. If you have a board with the same pinout it will fit.
stiligFox
I would suggest sticking with an arduino UNO style board (ATmega 328). See my above reply for 2 other options from 2 great companies as well.
Looks neat!
