Hello guys, I'm studing a way to watering all kind of plant in the garden. After that i'll implement sprinkler system inside this project. All plant needs different water quantity. I wanna use a lot of smart implant + 12v water valve + soil moisture sensor + temperature sensor. I see that smart implant can read DHT22 and DS18B20 sensor. I've also seen that there are some incomplete information on internet. I have NEVER used sensor like that, so i have LOT of question in my head. The aim of this project is to create some block scene where you can move output of smart implant in base of input condition + wheater prediction. First question: have someone done something like that before? I see on forum that fibaro may encounter problem with dht22 sensor, is it better to choose a ds18b20 sensor? Is a sensor like this ok for smart implant? Can i connect it directly on smart implant device? https://www.google.com/aclk?sa=L&ai=DChcSEwiRudnC16byAhUUt3cKHfbTArAYABAFGgJlZg&ae=2&sig=AOD64_1tIlSHN6i16Pi_hh7QVZKIz6d4zg&adurl&ctype=5&ved=2ahUKEwjJ-MrC16byAhVK4aQKHeVVDMAQwg96BAgBEDY&dct=1 If this is not ok, can someone suggest me a right soil moisture sensor? Can dht22 and ds18 sensors be read without creating virtual device? Thank you
