So my 10yr old had to create and maintain a vege garden for a school project this term which has been quite fun.

Garden is looking mint and being judged in 2 weeks time. So i just couldn't help myself Cheesy

Rummaged thru the old parts bin and found a carrier board for Oxygen that is 9-24v powered with 4 highside switches so decided to order some water solenoids and slapped on a BLE to IoT the garden...

I soon found out that Newton's Third Law is quite real : Smiley

@Justin - Would that be the law that for every dumb action there is an equally funny youtube video?

why did I check the forum at lunch?

PMSL. Luckily it was quiet where I was so didn't have to explain why to (un)interested onlookers.

If it's function is to keep you out of the garden then I think i'd call that test a success!

@Justin - Did the phone survive? All I could think of as you were pushing the button was the likelihood of the phone taking a dive off the table.

I'm still laughing when I see this post....

This is probably a good reason why for prototyping you really only want easy to remove wiring not screw down ones Smiley

PS: Justin, room for a carrier in my next care pack? Smiley
