In this modern era of fast-moving technology, we can do things which we could never do before and to do these tasks there is a necessity to build a platform to perform these tasks. The proposed system puts forth the home automation technique for smart plant watering system. A smartphone empowers the user to be updated with their current garden status using IoT from any part of the world. The system uses Node ESP8266 as the microcontroller interfacing unit.
