SMARTHON Smart Plant Kit for micro:bit
Build your smart plant model now!
Smarthon SmartPlant IoT kit aids students in learning to conduct experiments in plant studies and optimize the care for them. You can become an amateur botanist by studying the elements of caring for plants by using sensors and actuators to create exciting projects such as automatic irrigation systems based on soil moisture.

The instruction manual is included with the kit, convenient for teachers and students to make.
The smart city kit works with Smarthon's IoT:bit WiFi extension board to create different IoT projects.
Smart Plant Projects
The model is included with the kit for student to build creatively.
The instruction book contain the detail assembly steps.
Smart Plant Projects
Have you ever imagined how to design your own smart plant? This set can make at least 5 smart plant set items. The following are some reference examples. Promoting plant growth can be divided into four basic elements, including light, water, temperature, and humidity.
Grow LED Light Color Control
Create a grow light that can be turned to different colors using the buttons on micro:bit board.
Create an automatic irrigation system that will water the plant whenever the soil moisture sensor senses the lack of water in the soil.
Environment Monitoring Display
Mount and LCD display that will show the real time plant data such as the environment temperature, humidity and the soil moisture.
Automatic Humidity Control
Create an automatic system that humidifies the air whenever there is lack of it in the environment.
Smart LED Grow Light
Create an automatic grow light that will turn on when the light sensor detects the lack of appropriate amount of light.
Plant Health Data Monitoring
Create a plant health monitoring system that will track the environment's humidity, temperature, light intensity and the plant’s soil moisture. The data is then sent and stored in thingspeak where it can be remotely monitored and analyzed over long periods of time.
With the great design, it is made by using acrylic material. It is very fun that the students can build a pot for the plant. Besides, it is good for the plant pot with mounting holes so that it can mount different electronics on the pot, like LCD, temperature and humidity sensor and grow plant LED light. Besides, the great stand is flexible and height can be adjusted so that users can adjust it based on different height of the plant.
Soil & Seeds Included
The common problem with these types of projects is that the idea might sound good, but it can be such a hassle for a teacher to buy the pots, seeds, and all additional materials to even make it happen. However, our kit provides you a complete experience. We include all the necessary components such as a custom plant pot, tray, seeds, and soil. You can start creating right away without any barriers in front of you.
Smart IoT Planting
The kit lets you also delve into the advanced Internet of Things. Our custom Smarthon IoT bit is equipped with an ESP 32 WiFi module that can connect to the internet and communicate with other objects. For instance, one of our projects lets you create a plant health monitoring system that records plant data and stores the data in the cloud.
Plant Pot Model Design
Whenever we are teaching STEM we have to think about combining several sciences to create plant projects. With this kit, you will learn to connect, program, and use the included sensors and actuators to fully automate the care for your plant. With those sensors and actuators, you can already sense and adjust the basic needs of the plant like Soil moisture, light and humidity. Different plants have different needs, and you can create a nearly autonomous system that can care for almost any plant.
