The Grove - Moisture Sensor can be used to detect the moisture of soil, to judge if there is dampness around the sensor. It can be used to decide if the plants in a garden needs watering. It can be used in gardens to automate watering plants. It can be used very easily by just inserting the sensor into the soil and reading the output using ADC.
For all Grove users (especially beginners), we provide you guidance PDF documents. Please download and read through Preface - Getting Started and Introduction to Grove before your use of the product.
Note: This sensor is not hardened against contamination or exposure of the control circuitry to water and may be prone to electrolytic corrosion across the probes , please use it for PROTOTYPING ONLY.

Ready to use with microcontrollers as digital input. This product also has a compact modular design Plug-and-play grove compatible interface.

Based on the picture above, the grove shield for Arduino is stacked with Seeeduino V4.2. Of course you can use that shield with Arduino too :)


You can get grove hat for Raspberry Pi here. It may not be the same as product above but still can use with Raspberry Pi.

Note: Controllers are sold separately.
