Sensor wiring
The WeMos D1 mini fritzing part:

It's lacking a PCB view but hopefully the breadboard and schematic views could be useful.

WeMos D1 mini Fritzing part:

It's lacking a PCB view but hope this could be useful for others with usable breadboard and schematic views.

sensor and monitor/display
ESP8266 based soil moisture sensor and ESP8266 based monitor with an Adafruit NeoPixel Feather display, each individually connects to AWS IoT so the sensor(s) and monitor can be anywhere (power and wifi depending). /sensor: WeMos D1 Mini based sensor code /monitor: Adafruit Feather HUZZAH ESP8266 based monitor code
**use the iot-get-shadow-and-cleanup branch** Forked fork of Initial fork ( adds AWS IoT and ESP8266 support. I'll get a pr out soon to try to consolidate the fork-ness of this.
