Recipe Overview and Assumptions
The MediaTek LinkIt 7688 and LinkIt 7688 Duo is an innovative chipset with a high potential to move the internet of things space forward. Combined with the sensors and boards available from Seeed a maker can make any number of Internet of things devices. This recipe focuses on the necessary hardware and software to make a device to monitor the health of a plant or plants in a small area. It uses light, temperature and moisture sensors to interface with an Arduino chipset. The Arduino chipset then communicates the measurements to a Wifi enable chip. In this recipe the chip acts as a server and locally hosts a website where the measurement data can be viewed from any computer connected to the Local Area Network (LAN).
