- The Lora Relay, with Lora communication, suit for applications for smart-farm, irrigation, agriculture, etc.
Lora Relay offers bandwidth options ranging from 7.8125kHz to 500 kHz with spreading factors ranging from 6 to 12, there are three choices of the working frequency.
|Item||Lora Module||working frequency|
|Lora Soil Moisture Sensor 433M||RFM98W-433MHz/SX1278||433MHz|
|Lora Soil Moisture Sensor 868M||RFM95W-868MHz||433MHzcommunication is established.|
|Lora Soil Moisture Sensor 915M||RFM95W-915MHz||915MHz|
Free ISM bands world Wide(come from TI)
Lora Soil Moisture Sensor based on the Arduino, users can program it with Arduino IDE, which is very easy especially suit for the none-programmers. There are also guide for users to learn how to create the first IoT project with this board, with which the starters can learn the hardware and programming skill quickly.
This guide help you the basic usage of Lora Soil Moisture Sensor.
This Moisture Sensor can be used to detect the moisture of soil or judge if there is water around the sensor. They can be very easy to use, just insert it into the soil and then analog read it. With help of this module, it will be realizable to make the plant reminds you : Hey, I am thirsty now, I need some water.
This design is based on a capacitive principle. We integrated the 555 oscillator capacitive measurement, which will give you a reading ranging from about 500 (very wet) to 1000 (very dry).

Lora Soil Moisture Sensor requires a USB-to-UART tool to upload firmware to it, you can get it from:
Install the CP2102 driver from:
|Lora Soil Moisture Sensor||USB-to-UART Tool|
After a Arduino IDE installed, there is a default package to support Lora Soil Moisture Sensor(Arduino Zero ),
From the top Arduino IDE menu, select Tools-> Board-> Arduino Pro or Pro Mini
Open LoraTransmitterADCAHT10.ino, verify and upload the firmware to Lora Soil Moisture.
Modify the frequency macro according to your board is 433Mhz or 868Mhz or 915Mhz.
If your Lora board is 433MHz:
#define RF95_FREQ 433.0
If your Lora board is 868MHz:
#define RF95_FREQ 868.0
If your Lora board is 915MHz:
#define RF95_FREQ 915.0
Tips: Lora Soil Moisture designed as a product, so it not integrates the USB-to-UART on board. If you upload the firmware fails, press and hold the Reset button before upload the firmware. When the IDE shows below, then release the button that may helped to upload the firmware success. That’s we need a reset the MCU when upload the firmware.
Install the AAA*2 batteries and put the Lora Soil Moisture aside, now we need to make the Lora Radio Receiver.
Open the code LoraReceiver.ino
Select the Arduino Pro or Pro mini
Verify and upload the firmware.
