PROJECT ONE: Intelligent Tulip Water Device

WHAT WE’VE GOT HERE

Decorate your room with tulips, and make your home a pleasant space. But what if I am too busy to take care of the lovely tulips? Now imagine your tulips will remind us when they are thirsty! We can set up a “conversation” with the help of Moisture Sensor, which can detect the electric resistance of the soil, and thus can show us the soil moisture by the 4-Digital-Display.

When the moisture is below the value you have set, the buzzer will respond in a blast of sound of “DEE DEE”, reminding you of their need of water. At this moment, the Relay will initiate the motor to water your Tulips.

THE CIRCUIT

  • PARTS
  • • Grove - Moisture Sensor
  • • Grove - Buzzer
  • • Grove - Relay
  • • Grove - 4-Digital-Display
  • • Grove - Base-BoosterPack x 1
  • • LaunchPad MSP430G2 x 1

RESULT

When the soil turns dry and its moisture index is below the value you have set, the Buzzer will ring and the Relay will initiate the motor automatically until the moisture of soil reaches the parameter you set in the device.


PROJECT TWO: Intelligent Lamp

WHAT WE’VE GOT HERE

Have you ever had this idea? When someone gets closer or the night falls, the lamp of your room will turn on automatically. When someone leaves or the day dawns, it will turn off. Now we can work out the magic by Grove PIR sensor and Grove Relay.

THE CIRCUIT

  • PARTS
  • • Grove - Light Sensor
  • • Grove - Relay
  • • Grove - PIR sensor
  • • Grove - Base-BoosterPack x 1
  • • LaunchPad MSP430G2 x 1

RESULT

When someone gets closer, the Relay will interact with the “lamp” on LaunchPad for 10 seconds, and at the same time the light will be turned on. When it becomes darker, the device works in a similar way.


SOFTWARE ENVIRONMENT

Energia is an open-source and community-driven development environment for the TI LaunchPad development kits. It is based on the popular Wiring framework, which offers a collection of simple functions and APIs for programming a microcontroller easily. Energia support is available on many of TI’s LaunchPad development kits, featuring the MSP430, TM4C, C2000, CC3200 and other microcontroller devices.

I bought the black one and the chain is gold color. Not sure of the ink bag.

You need a WiFi Internet connection, and a smartphone or tablet for the Echo App. That's it. It is easy to set up, but it may take you a while to figure out all of the little things that the Echo App can do.

BEWARE this is NOT STEREO and it is NOT MONO. This is only one channel. You will not hear part's of songs (recorded in stereo) that are only played through the left channel. Kinda ridiculous. Still it is a decent sounding speaker.

★★★★★ Great bag
Purchased this for my 23 year old daughter in the butterscotch color. Great versatile color. She loves the size -- perfect for day or going out at night. Chain can be double to shorten for nighttime and left long to wear as a crossbody during the day.
