I would like to build IoT system for my garden, I would like to get data about weather and soil, and controlling of my watering system in garden.
I have electric valve for my watering pipes TORO EZ-Flo Plus 1, but I don’t know if I can control it using GPIO in SoC.
I’m thinking about these SoCs:
- RASPBERRY Pi 3 Model B+
- Or something other?
I would like to have SoC with Linux operating system, because I would buy Touchscreen for it and have it as “terminal” with PIXEL or Lxde or Xfce desktop environment.
The most important for me is stability, I want SoC which will not freeze, crash etc..
So I wonder if someone has experiences with these SoCs mentioned above.
For SoC I want to buy:
- Case which is big enough for Touchscreen.
- Touchscreen (around 7″)
- Sensors for:
