automated irrigation system

geuxorSeptember 20, 2013

I have a few seedlings and small plants that require very little water, just a 3-5 ml a day for some and been doing some research into how to automate the watering for these plants for when im on vacation.
What i want is an indoor water container to give water to these small plants on demand or e.g. every 2 days, and be able to control this depending on how the plants looks by monitoring this from an ip cam and when needed connect through mobile/web and give it a shot of water. I have a synology ds1513+ which will be nice to integrate to this x10 system, and maybe be able to add a humidity sensor to the plant also.

Can anyone suggest any systems that can be remotely controlled through a mobile/web/etc, and maybe even integrated with synology nas ds1513+?
Cheers..:

Check out BlueSpray. Built-in wifi, granular scheduling capability. Should fit your application perfectly.
