Things used in this project

Hardware components:
Photon new
Particle Photon
×1
SparkFun hygrometer
this is a soil moisture sensor... I used 4.
×4
Fairchild semiconductor pn2222abu. image
General Purpose Transistor NPN
these are used to provide 5v to the soil moisture sensors and to the relays. the photon only has 3.3v output.
×3
Ge6mtc5pim8a5v4ehamx
Arduino Arduino 4 Relays Shield
I used a 2 relay shield..
×1
Hand tools and fabrication machines:
3drag
3D Printer (generic)
cnc
you will find creating the board to be easier in a CNC. you'll also find that cutting the wood for the shelf could be easier with a CNC.
09507 01
Soldering iron (generic)
oscilloscope
very handy for making sure your NPN switches are working properly.
