No such thing - communicate with the manufacturer/distributor of the sensors and learn from them how to interface with a sprinkler system hahaha.. that is the best one yet

Just wanted to post it in another color, in case you were as color-blind as you were inexperienced with the function of sensors in a sprinkler system.

Wrong again bud. I was an IT tech before I was an irrigation specialist.

Your right , My invalid post is over reacting and calling you names. Everything else is right though.

I never said ' sensors ' are for indoor use , I said the 2 that you posted
are. I mean look at them lol, they don't have any kind of water proof
casing what so ever. One ounce of water touching that board while power is being supplied will cross-connect and fry the board.

You are the one who just said a moisture sensor and a humidity sensor
are the same thing!! Not me! Your generalizing the word sensor to be so
broad you think anything that's a sensor will sense anything you want it

I'm here to tell you that your idea is wrong , although I applaud you
for some research , your in the opposite direction . Good luck with
wasteing your time on a failed attempt

Research more into the direction of my links.

I think that you are a kind of unfamiliar with the subject and with the wsm...
For that reason i posted such as basic information about wireless sensors motes...
And who told you about the example of mobile and what does it have the cell phone with this subject? , because it has inside it a sensor? hahaha..that is for other reason..
And who told you that sensors are only for inside jobs...hahaha
Just stop posting in topics that you are unfamiliar..because almost all your post is invalid.

I gave you advice and you chose not to listen... I posted links and went out of my way to help out out...
These items you are talking about have absolutely nothing to do with watering.

Your basically saying that my cell phone is a moisture sensor because it has a ' Sensor ' inside that detects movement and my finger touching the screen... Really????? Wow I didn't know I could shove my phone in the ground and get proper moisture readings... That's so cool!

Your an Idiot!!!

I mean did you even read the 2 links of what you just posted?????!?!?!?!??!

The wikipedia link is just a description of what a node is.. Simple enough.. So what's your point, this has nothing to do with watering your effing garden

Your other sensor you linked states basically the same thing except it can read humidity? I Have a humidity analog reader in my house.. There nothing special...

Go ahead though, buy this stuff and shove it in the ground.. See if it works.... Moron!
