soil moisture sensor

Question

Hello.
I have watering done on the solenoid valves and the switch.
Now I am looking for a soil moisture sensor that I could best connect to UBS or possibly RGBW.
I do not need to know exactly what the humidity is. I just want to keep it at a certain level.
I considered the solution presented on the M173 sensor forum, but I can not get it.
I was thinking of buying a sensor, for example from gardeny and converting it, but he gives resistance at the output, so I will not connect it to ubs'a or rgbw.
You can recommend me a soil moisture sensor that is available "on the spot" (fast shipping because winter soon: D)
I've seen a dedicated LB-797, but it costs millions of coins.

Regards

The UBS cannot measure resistance, as you indicated yourself.

 

There are moisture sensors available, perhaps any of these:
