Soil Moisture Sensor Module (Capacitive) Guide

The Soil Moisture Sensor Module (Capacitive) acts like a capacitor where the water level changes the capacity and we can measure that charge and discharge timing. It is a popular module for measuring the moistness of soil. The biggest advantage over a traditional moisture sensor is that the capacitive sensor doesn't corrode. In this article, we will talk about how to wire and set up the module for operation with an Arduino Board.  Wiring  Most soil moisture sensor module operates between 3.3V to 5V and produce an analog output. For this project, we will be using Soil Moisture Sensor Module (Capacitive),...
